Cafe Create is a project that where I am designing furniture to go into a new shop in the Spring Garden Apartments. The idea is to create a retail space where faculty, students, and alumni can show off their craft to the student body. It will be a space that will challenge sustainable design and bring it to another level.

Light Sketch Series 4

Stairwell in Gatewood Studio Arts Building

a. Type of luminaire: Semi- direct

b. Mounting type: fixed mounting

c. Lamping: Fluorescent tubes

d. Construction: 2 Piece

e. Manufacturer: Lamar Lighting

f. Lumens: 47.9

g. Material and Finish: Brushed aluminum

h. Lensing: Transparent with serrated face

i. Function: Fixed semi-direct lighting

j. Ballasts: 2lamp ballasts

k. Environment: Circulation/ stairwell

l. Shielding:none besides the lensing

The purpose of the space is for circulation throughout the building as well as safety because it is a fire stairwell.

The purpose of the lighting fixtures in the space are ambient and they provide a proficient amount of light for egress.

To improve the lighting in the space I would suggest that the landings of each level in the stairwell are brighter so it clarifies where each floor is, instead of the whole stairwell being a consistent brightness the whole way through.

Impact design

An up and coming design firm is making an impact on environmental design with recycling in mind. The company's name... Grey Pants. I love their designs and everything their company stands for.
