Containing 1,000,000 S.F. of state government offices, the Keystone Building is a display of Pennsylvanian pride and accomplishment. Architecturally the project was designed to be "timeless" with the goal of looking modern and clean for decades to come. As such, the lighting design needed to be very simplistic and modern without the possibility of looking dated. Therefore no decorative fixtures or highly stylistic elements were used. Clean lines of light were carefully coordinated with the structure of the building to allow consistent exterior views of the building as well as future interior relocations under a consistent grid. The office environment was illuminated with a mere 0.6 watts per square foot. That may not sound impressive today, but at the time it was exceptional.
BLS still features this project on our website and challenges you to guess the projects completion date?
