Lobo Rain­for­est is part of the Uni­ver­sity of New Mexico and is located at Inno­vate ABQ. It is a six-story mixed-use build­ing that includes over 30,000 square feet of aca­d­e­mic, research, and office space, along with ABQ stu­dent hous­ing. The Lobo Rain­for­est encour­ages col­lab­o­ra­tion between stu­dents and fac­ulty who will all be at the site. The build­ing and sur­round­ings were designed for activ­ity, and lots of it.

Each stu­dent apart­ment, located on floors two through six, includes 2 bed­rooms, 2 bath­rooms, a full kitchen, living space, a washer and dryer, and views of the city. Events are held for stu­dents who live here, but those that don’t live in this build­ing are also invited. The goal of these events is to get par­tic­i­pa­tion and col­lab­o­ra­tion flow­ing.

In order to keep the court­yard open, Selux Lanova Cate­nary fix­tures were used to add illu­mi­na­tion with­out inter­fer­ence. By sus­pend­ing the cate­nary cables directly to the build­ing, poles in the middle of the court­yard were kept to a min­i­mum, allow­ing for traf­fic to flow freely through­out the space. This helps open up team­work and unity, solid­i­fy­ing the goals of Lobo Rain­for­est.

  • Lanova by Selux is an attractive LED luminaire perfect for a designer needing improved visual guidance and purposeful light. Lanova allows you the design freedom to position the light exactly where it is required with a luminous focal point or a dramatic shadow. It creates the perfect ambience - a modest light during the day transforms to a functional and energizing light by nightfall. Lanova creates excellent visibility and enhanced safety and security in large public areas such as parks, plazas, and campus squares. Lanova catenary and pendant systems deliver a wide range of looks and optical options. The two optical system options include the Gen5 technical versions (Type I, Type II, Type III, Type IV, Type V Round, and Type V Square) and a diffuse ambience version.
