The Hub is roughly 70,000SqFt of meeting rooms, offices, classrooms and gathering spaces that support business developers and entrepreneurs in the Miami Valley, powered in combination by the University of Dayton and the Entrepreneurs Center.
37 Volts was asked to review reflected ceiling plans, make recommendations for cost saving luminaire options, and retain the
essence of the interior designer's vision. We began with an extensive photometric study determining where deficiencies and over-illuminated areas were occurring. Between reducing luminaire quantities, simplifying the controls system design, and finding budget friendly luminaire solutions, hundreds of thousands of dollars were saved in lighting procurement costs.
A lightwell was created to allow for the buildings comprising the Hub
to connect within the interior.
The three story space has interconnecting bridges and stairs. A rough 3D model was generated in photometric software to review the placement and brightness of the lighting to ensure stairs are
properly illuminated after dark.
The south wall offered an opportunity for a lighting feature.
Copper finished bespoke saucers float up the wall, connected by
real copper tubing, while electrical connections are hidden behind the wall.
