FEATURED PROJECT: PRIVATE GARAGE
Smith Buckley Architects collaborated with Jim Stockman of J&M Lighting Design to create a stunning private garage to house a classic car collection. Mr. Stockman selected Tempo’s C7R Industrial linear luminaires to light two primary zones of the garage, connected via a breezeway, the storage area and the service area.
The main storage wing of the garage is designed to bathe the vehicles in glare free and shadow free light. This effect is in contrast to the showcase breezeway where a high intensity direct source makes the vehicles sparkle. The uniform light in the storage wing was achieved from a combination of clerestory windows and indirectly installed C7R LED luminaires. The inverted C7R fixtures illuminate the ceiling creating a single luminous plane that reflects light uniformly into the garage.
For the service bay, C7R luminaires directly illuminate the space to achieve a higher vertical and horizontal illuminance for this task intensive space. Additionally, a single run of indirect C7R luminaires, suspended along the length of the bay, illuminates the ceiling to complement the daylight.
Tempo’s C7R luminaires were the perfect fixtures to create a “jewel-box” effect such that when you walk across the fields to the garage, you see an emanating glow, but no direct light source!
