KSLD worked with Michael Laird Architects to improve the visibility and appeal of existing commercial rental property ‘Spectrum Building’ for its prospective occupants. This was achieved by creating an uplifting lighting scheme which improves the on-street presence and brings the building interior up-to-date.
An array of simple LED light boxes on the facade with the facility for basic animation give a bold yet sophisticated statement at street level. Throughout the interior this linear theme is continued with ceiling recessed fluorescent luminaires at the reception area; and fluorescent linear lights with 90 degree bends framing each of the lift lobby areas, emphasizing the form of the space. Trimless fittings and indirect lighting were used throughout to keep the architecture free and open.
