Spring Green, WI (PRWEB) April 30, 2013
World renowned Lighting designer and founder of Studio Lux LLC., Christopher Thompson and his team, announced their firm’s continuing collaboration with the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation, in the rehabilitation of lighting for Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin Spring.
“It is an honor to be involved in any Frank Lloyd Wright project,” said Christopher Thompson. “Our work at Taliesin West in Scottsdale AZ, while challenging, is likely our most significant highlight as a lighting design firm. To be moving to our second project with the FLWF is very exciting and it underscores the shared interest the team has in preserving these iconic historic projects.”
This marks Studio Lux’s continued working relationship with the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation who first sought out Thompson’s firm to update Taliesin West, the main campus of The Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture in Scottsdale, Arizona.
The goal of both renovation projects is to create a Net-Zero energy use campus in coordination with upgrading the electrical and mechanical infrastructure with the latest in energy-efficient products.
“We have partnered with some amazing firms to help us with the needs of both campuses,” Thompson continues. “You can expect some major announcements in the coming months on the partnerships who have been working hard at helping us to solve challenges in these historically sensitive campuses.”
Similar to Taliesin West, Taliesin Spring suffers from antiquated and poorly performing lighting systems throughout the campus. Studio Lux will design and revitalize existing systems by utilizing high efficacy sources such as LED lamps, which will improve light levels, restore the original design intent, and to decrease campus-wide power usage while being sensitive to the site’s historical nature.
