Jackson Hole Center for the Arts

The lighting design for the Center for the Arts focused on sustainability and aesthetics, while meeting a very tight budget. The design included energy efficient light sources that have a long life for ease of maintenance. Induction fluorescent lamps with a lamp life of over 60,000 hours provided house lighting where maintenance and accessibility were difficult. One very unusual feature was the large window in the House that allows daylight to be used as a primary light source during nonperformance daytime hours. Dramatic color changing and long lasting LED luminaries are used to highlight architectural features. Electric lighting was minimally needed in the facility during the daytime.
