The illumination scheme for the athletic center's façade does more than just highlight the architecture, it let's people know when the swim team has had a successful swim meet. Victory is signaled by the appearance of the school's color—Peddie blue—achieved with blue T5HO linear fluorescents controlled separately.
The main feature of the athletic center is the natatorium (above), which houses a competition-regulation swimming pool. The pool is lit with a light-pipe system that uses 1,000W metal halide lamps to provide the required 50-footcandle-level of glare-free illumination on the water surface. Metal halide downlights illuminate the surrounding deck areas.
