ILIGHT CASE STUDY: LAMAR CENTRAL BREEZEWAY
June 15, 2016
Lamar Central is a four-story, 165,000 square foot, LEED®-Certified mixed-use building near downtown Austin, Texas that opened up fall of 2015. Since its opening, the building has attracted prominent tenants for its retails and restaurant space on the ground level as well as office space on the three levels above.
Lamar Central has been transformed into a modern building with forward-thinking fixtures, including a landscaped courtyard and breezeway with a unique design element that incorporates iLight Plexineon LED fixtures. The design challenge was to create a visual bridge from the building’s exterior to the more relaxed courtyard – which was achieved perfectly with iLight’s Plexineon LED fixtures.
The design team wanted to do something unique with the ceiling installation. With sustainability as a design priority, nature served as an inspiration. Thus the team was drawn towards the honeycomb pattern – which allowed for playful shapes, lights and colors to come in play.
The installation serves as an invitation to explore and to be drawn into the courtyard space – where the white glow at night catches the eye of someone passing by while simultaneously adding energy to the space around.
