Goal

To highlight existing industrial architecture by preserving previous parts while offering a contrast with new construction. Architectural lighting design works to serve, highlight and enhance certain architectural elements in order to create a cohesive spatial experience or aesthetic.

“The old construction is full of marks and blemishes that show the wear and tear of its long history,” Mr. Cherry said. “We didn’t try to cover these blemishes. We [wanted] to make it clean and crisp, highlighting the new construction.”

Challenges

“There were constant discoveries and surprises as the building demolition and new construction took place,” Louis Cherry said. “We were always having to evaluate when a repair should be made and when it was good to leave the existing condition in place.”

Design Solution

Resolution was achieved through diligence to integrate new and emergent facts, details and information. As Mr. Cherry put it, at Plant Seven, there was “also a commitment from the owners [as well as] design and construction team that the project [could] achieve excellence in design and execution.”

Two foundational principles of lighting design guide most designers and architects—the qualitative (or aesthetic) aspect and the quantitative (or engineering) aspect of light. Architectural lighting is concerned with the qualitative lighting experience. The qualitative pertains to ensuring that a space has a pleasing ambience. It is the artistic interspersing of shadows and light, darkness and illumination, highlighting certain figures and form.
