Designed by Luminae Souters' Eleanor Huang, the parking garage under the San Francisco Intercontinental Hotel adjacent to the Moscone Convention Center, was brought to life with numerous 24ft length A1 | arcature1 direct/indirect lumianires. Suspended via 3/8" hollow pendant stems for powerfeed, the fixtures were strategically placed in shallow coves approximately 18" from the cove top and flush to ceiling. This allowed the open and broad uplight of the A1 to wash the cove forming a simulated skylight, while the a·parabola™ louver provided direct illumination on the vehicles and pedestrians. T5 fluorescent lamping produces superior color rendering for searching amongst the many vehicles, as well as generating bright and safely lit subterranean levels.
