Built in 1994, the 1800-seat Fred Kavli Theatre underwent recent renovations over an expedited three-month period that included new paint, carpet, seats, color-changing fixtures, and new lighting design upgrades.
This project is a pedestrian/cycling bridge that spans Irvine Boulevard in Irvine, CA, uniting two family-oriented neighborhoods with an extensive park and trail system. While the City of Irvine created the bridge for safe pedestrian and bicycle passage from point to point, it is also a destination. The bridge provides a glowing beacon for its travelers at night, with strategically located lighting to illuminate the grand vertical gateways and guide walkers, runners, and bikers along the pathway. With Irvine priding itself as the safest city in the country, the bridge has as much functional purpose as aesthetics. The challenges were to provide an exciting new walkway between the neighborhoods more unique than former bridges while still meeting the strict security requirements of the city. With a simple, elegant – and fun - lighting scheme, the new neighborhoods have an iconic element that promotes walking and cycling, encouraging healthy, active families. The architecture was done by Ware Malcomb, with Electrical Engineering by tk1sc and lighting design by StudioK1.
The new, state-of-the-art, 30,000 square foot Old Town Newhall Library offers more than 135,000 literary items, 68 public use computers, private study spaces, and meeting rooms. Additional highlights of the Library include a children’s library, teen study area, a fireplace reading room, community meeting areas, an outdoor courtyard, art and photographic displays, an artistic replication of Beale’s Cut, and original works of art. Tk1sc provided electrical engineering services with studioK1 providing lighting design. StudioK1 has received recognition for lighting excellence for this project from the IES.
StudioK1 provided lighting design services for the new North Wing addition. This 30,000 square foot addition doubled the Bower's exhibition space and comprised a 300 seat state-of-the-art auditorium, two 5,000 square foot galleries, and a central atrium designed to host special events for up to 500 guests. The project also included designing the lighting for a new entry and garden, exterior courtyard, and parking lot.
This project included amenity improvements for the MetLife Investments office at 655 West Broadway in San Diego. The scope of work included adding the amenity deck at the 6th level and bleachers between the 6th and 7th levels, including an accessible lift for the upper 7th level bleacher deck, new office tenant improvement, and unisex toilets at the 6th level. In addition, the ground level includes a new coffee shop, boardroom, shower/locker rooms, restrooms, bike storage, and smoking area.
This project was the first of its kind for Hoag and included the nation's first ambient experience cath lab. Our scope of work on this 533,680 square foot hybrid surgery suite included all new HVAC and plumbing systems and EMS consulting services. In addition to the cath lab, this project consists of a14-bay swing Pre-Op/PACU, Physicians Lounges, Staff Lounge, Public spaces, and Exterior Entry. The hybrid operating room HVAC systems include state-of-the-art temperature and humidity control systems utilizing series desiccant wheel technology. Using the series desiccant wheel technology, low room temperatures and humidities can be achieved while also reducing cooling energy use. We also monitored hybrid OR indoor air for temperature, humidity, CO2, particle count, and VOCs. We utilized indoor air quality to monitor unoccupied air handling system setback modes to reduce energy costs further.
