Dotted Ceilings Create Glowing Patterns In This Building

Jan 09, 2017

American studio Tighe Architecture used plywood, perforated steel and white LEDs to upgrade the communal spaces in a pair of nondescript, 50-year-old office buildings in the Los Angeles area.

Perforated steel panels, clear-finished plywood and various lighting strategies were then installed to "energise the spaces" and assist in way finding.

"The layering of building materials, pattern and shadow define circulation and other areas of activity," the studio said. 

The panels are affixed to walls and ceilings. In the lobby areas, they extend beyond the front door to form dramatic exterior canopies.

White LEDs shine through holes in the metal panels. The patterning was inspired by raindrops in one building and a network of highways in the other.

The team also suspended linear LED fixtures in all of the refurbished areas, and added benches and stools made of plywood.
