Lumen Award Winners 2003

Changi Airport Station
Singapore Airport

A pair of complimentary glass atria entries connected by an underground bridge and metro station articulates this ultra-modern airport train hub. The under-side of this luminous bridge creates an ethereal canopy and generates a visual connection between the two zones of travel.

 Mall at Millenia
Orlando, Florida

The challenge was to create a regional mall that surpasses all design expectations. The Water Garden’s ceiling, bathed in soft blue light draws patrons within. Inside, a triangular fountain leads to the elevator cabs lit by a neon-backlit color changing ceiling.

 Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame
Springfield, MA

An instantly recognizable look was required for the exterior dome and facade. The project integrated a museum, sports and retail complex that would become a destination for a large number of tourists. The full size interactive interior court includes a 60 second lighting moment when the video, sound and lighting become fully animated. The sports honorees are represented by interactive illuminated plaques lining the dome.

 School of The International Center of Photography
New York, NY

The relocation of this photography school to a basement facility required design ingenuity to overcome the loss of windows and a park view. This street-level glass pavilion, which serves as the entry, glows like a lantern at night.  The lighting reinforces the simplicity of the form and establishes the pavilion as an identifiable icon.

 Chanel Brompton Road
London, England

This two-story corner boutique is located on a busy London intersection in a fashionable residential area. The client wanted a fresh design that would appeal to a younger, “local” clientele, rather than the passing tourist.  Feature elements of the lighting design include a luminous animated staircase and an animated “proscenium style” display.

Ecliptic
Grand Rapids, Michigan

Every night in Grand Rapids, Michigan, 166 fiber optic lights mirror the city’s starlit winter sky.  The simulated stars glow through the ice of a new municipal skating rink, heart of a revitalized downtown.  The project-a collaboration between designers, urban planners and civic leaders-transforms a once dangerous park into a vital urban landscape.

 Schlumberger New York Offices
New York, NY

The New York headquarters of Schlumberger is at the top of a hi-rise office tower.  Though restricted in height by the structure and ductwork, the client wanted a “light and bright” space to accompany their belief in an open plan office with views of the city all around.  The challenge was to develop an illumination system that would keep the space feeling as inviting and tall as possible while meeting the requirements of workspaces, conference rooms, reception areas, cafe, and boardroom functions.
