Originally constructed in 1942, the Carpenter Sports Building hosts both recreational and competitive sports, as well as houses exercise facilities for University employees and the student body. BLS designed the lighting for the renovation of the existing building, as well as for a brand new addition. The lighting design goals for this project included the creation of a functional lighting system that is not only visually comfortable for the end users, but also complements and highlights the architectural features of the building.
