A view of the rear entrance. The illuminated ceiling surfaces reflect light onto the walls and display areas.
In the Arts Center corridors, outward-facing asymmetric covelights, angled according to the ceiling, illuminate lobby areas and radiate toward the plaza.
In the hallways, inward-facing fluorescent covelights balance the outward glow of light. Concealed tracklighting is designed to highlight student art and historical displays.
The new Quaker Meeting Room was once the gym. The space is articulated with a series of floating architectural planes that modulate natural and electric light.
Fixtures behind the scrim walls in the Quaker Meeting Room mimic the glow of the clerestory windows behind.
The east and west walls meet the ceiling and form large reveals. Additional rows of concealed fluorescents wash the surfaces where daylight can’t reach. Double-lamp asymmetric fixtures diffuse the light from the upper walls. The T5HOs provide 40 footcandles and achieve a 20 percent energy savings.
When the electric lighting is needed in the Quaker Meeting Room, it can be controlled independently to tailor the light according to time of day and event requirements.
