Before & After, 90 Broad Street Lobby
From dim to DAMMMN.
This gorgeous lobby was suffering due to an outdated lighting technology. The building was completed around the same time the linear fluorescent strip was invented. The original lighting scheme was designed to utilize T12 fluorescent strips tucked into the decorative plaster crown moldings. This was effective, and a bit revolutionary, but unfortunately, as time went on, linear fluorescents never really progressed. Sure, they got smaller and brighter, but optically still only produced a glow.
The minute we stepped into this lobby we knew we could improve the lighting but didn’t realize how drastic the result would be.
