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.
