The Collaborative Research Center is comprised of two renovated, early 20th Century lab buildings linked by a new bridging structure. The bridge building, with its complicated interior of irregular and twisting floor plates, and its seven story atrium formed by sloping, slatted wood walls, was designed to foster interaction and enhance teamwork among scientists.
The lighting clarifies the complex design by highlighting key architectural elements, through the thoughtful choice and layout of the fixtures and by establishing a hierarchy of brightness relationships. The result is friendly and welcoming lighting that promotes collaboration and community.
