Celebration with Spotlights: Relighting a German Church

A recent lighting upgrade at the Grevenbroich parish church saw the pendant luminaires replaced by flexible spotlights on track. The results are convincing in terms of economy, technology and design. The Roman Catholic parish church of St. Mariä Geburt in Grevenbroich, Germany, a small town near Dusseldorf, was built in 1930. The interior surprises, with an unexpected and similarly unusual, spatial form. The long rectangular, single-nave sanctuary is spanned by a low pointed barrel vault that instantly reminds one of an upside down hull. Deep lunette-type window reveals accentuate the vault, lending the space a rhythmic structure.The interior was recently subjected to refurbishment. The reno

Linear with a Twist

Previewed at Light+Building Frankfurt last month, LED Linear has some notable products and project applications for LED fixtures and light sources. The brand new VENUS True Color is an LED luminaire using a new polyurethane encapsulation technology offering an IP67 ingress protection index and enables an optimum rendition of the LED spectrum (no color shift). It is available in two variants: the first, Top-View, takes over applications covered by its predecessor for 2-D bends perpendicular to the luminous surface. The second variant, MARS NANO, extends the boundaries of lighting design by providing a perfectly homogenous light line, which can be twisted or bent in three dimensions in order t

Articulation Curbs NYC "Dirt Factor"

433 Broadway walks a fine line between historic form and modern function, visually blending in to Manhattan’s historic SOHO district. Owned by Cubico, it is the first building entirely devoted to shared workspace constructed from the ground up. With this came a host of design challenges to allow varied companies to coexist—and thrive—within the same workspace. “Because it is being used by any number of different people, we wanted it to be as general and anonymous as possible,” says Nelson Vega, Associate Principal, AIA, RKTB Architects. RKTB also set out to avoid enclosed spaces that would block daylight from getting deep into each floor, with a lot of interior

Casino Lobby Maintains Design

Pechanga Resort & Casino has undergone a major expansion that nearly doubled the size of the existing lobby and registration area. To maintain continuity of design with the existing lobby, the design team chose a custom linear metal ceiling in a wood-look finish. The growing popularity of the Pechanga Resort & Casino in Temecula, Calif., triggered a major expansion that nearly doubled the size of the existing lobby and registration area.When designing the new addition, which features a glass atrium that streams daylight into the expanded lobby, the design team from Klai Juba Wald Interiors, of Las Vegas, was charged with incorporating some of the existing feature elements into t
