Project Overview

An old potato factory was converted to a mid-sized restaurant, bar and distillery to offer patrons the opportunity to learn about the manufacturing process of the world-famous O’Shaughnessy whiskey.

The lighting was designed to enhance the experience of patrons from the outside in. The exterior of the building features strategically placed luminaires to accent the rustic brick façade in elegant contrast to the glass box framework and metal paneling. The landscape is lit to draw attention from the street toward the patio and building entrances. Once inside, the glitz and glamour of the copper pots, mirror-backed bar cases and plush furnishings provokes an instant sense of luxury and prestige. Careful attention to detail ensured that all the lighting was tucked away eliminating glare. Balanced highlights and shadows draw focus toward retail items in an elegant manner.

A centralized control system allows for each set of lights within each space to be dimmed to satisfy the unique requirements of the space, creating perfectly balanced lighting scenes.
