Mendenhall Valley Public Library

Mendenhall library was completed in 2015. With the construction of the new library, Haight & Associates designed power systems, lighting systems, network & communication and access control. This facility is characterized by a roof that “floats” on columns above windows that surround the perimeter. The lighting objective was to illuminate the spaces open to the upper ceiling utilizing indirect, reflective light and furniture mounted luminaires. No luminaires are mounted in or on the upper ceiling.

All of the lighting for this library utilizes luminaires with LED light engines. The light is produced with a 3500 degree K color and is controlled with a low voltage system using manually selected preset scenarios and dimming of luminaires in specific areas. The roof of library extends well beyond the perimeter of the exterior walls allowing some of the interior light that is directed at the ceiling to also illuminate the eve. This is a LEED project so the light is limited to illuminate no further than the eve.

The primary area of the library is illuminated with linear luminaires mounted to the window structures. These luminaires are directed to illuminate the ceiling, thus reflecting to the floor towards the center of the space. The stacks incorporate linear fixtures mounted at the top and directing light to the floor. These luminaires include emergency battery packs to facilitate egress lighting. Light bars mounted above the study surfaces which provide task illumination.

The children’s library features diagonal cubes built into the wall. The interior of these cubes include recessed linear fixtures providing illumination for bear and Eeyore, as well as the children visiting the library.

The meeting rooms have ceilings constructed below the upper roof. Luminaires are mounted above the soffits, wall, and ceiling providing indirect and direct illumination of the space. This provides uniform illumination of the entire volume.

South Franklin dock to Taku Smokeries Seawalk Lighting

In 2015, we began and completed a project to construct a new seawalk from one of the cruise ship docks toward the town center. It includes several features that incorporate different lighting characteristics. All of the luminaires utilize LED light engines with 3500 and 4000 degree K luminance.

The seawalk originates at the cruise ship dock, passing beneath a translucent canopy. Native totemic art is included with some of the canopy panels. This area is illuminated with small marker lights with narrow beams mounted into the canopy support structure. These provide lines of light across the walkway. The objective in this area is to direct the light downward in a relatively tight pattern. This allows the canopy panels with totemic art to silhouette against the evening sky without distractive artificial light.

A section of the seawalk between the covered portion and a gift shop is featured with garden planters and sitting benches. This is a wide area in the seawalk with small spurs leading landward to a bus parking area. Marker lights are encased into the concrete walls surrounding the planters and supporting the benches. This project lights the walkways in this area.

Three of the photos show straight round poles supporting decorative, period style luminaires. These are located on the water side of the walkway, illuminating the pathway from the canopy to the far end of the project. These luminaires are a cutoff type projecting most of their light directly to the walkway deck. The intent is to facilitate viewing from the seawalk out over the waterfront without objectionable artificial light. The poles include brackets for supporting decorative flags in the summer.
