Sketch Series 2

 Retail Space, Restaurant Space, Gallery Space

Retail Space- Anthropologie at Friendly Center in Greensboro, NC

The spaces filled with so many warm and vibrant colors. The lighting fills the space with a nice warm glow. There where recessed lighting with fluorescent lamps from the ceiling. MR-16 Track lamps from the ceiling also directed to displays on the walls. The direct light on some of the colors and reflective surfaces on the shelves creates quite an intense wall washing effect that is bright and directs the focus on the merchandise.

Restaurant Space- Fern in Charlotte, NC
Over head lights hung over the dinning table in a bright collection resembling a chandler made of mason jars and incandescent lamps. It filled the table top with a intimate and familiar warm glow. The walls were washed with MR-16 running track lamps create a warm glow off of the side walls. The space creates an ideal blend of bright warm qualities that help create an warm and inviting effect.

Gallery Space- Weatherspoon Art Gallery at UNCG in Greensboro, NC
Incandescent over head lights allow for the space to have soft overhead glow that allows more for way finding purposes, while track lighting focused on washing and grazing the walls allows for the pieces of art to receive the most attention and creates for the eye to connect to the works of art being displayed within the space. There is also a slight amount of ambient natural light coming into the space.
