Pivotal provided exterior lighting design as part of a multi-phase project to enliven the street presence of this office building in downtown Chicago. Phase 1 of the design incorporates blue LED uplighting that fills the expansive entry alcove and complements the finish of the surfaces in the space. Contrasting warm white LED lighting at ground level provides a welcoming layer of illumination and respects the building’s historic 1913 base façade. A new digital control system provides dimming and maximum flexibility, while utilizing the existing conduit and wiring to greatly reduce the cost and complexity of installation. The new LED lighting enhances the visual impact of the building and significantly improves the ambient illumination at street level, all while consuming less than half the energy of the previous metal-halide system.
