Sirocco, a res­i­den­tial devel­op­ment in down­town Squamish, was designed to join people with nature through­out the many open spaces. Public areas were cre­ated with the inten­tion of draw­ing people in and to inspire gath­er­ing, rest­ing, and wan­der­ing. Con­cerns from Squamish res­i­dents were con­sid­ered when cre­at­ing the flow of walk­ways, gaps between build­ings, and main­tain­ing the beauty of the region.

Built on the east side of Logger’s Lane, a vibrant streetscape was planned so the public felt wel­come and res­i­dents felt at home. With the thought of pro­tect­ing views and the nat­ural beauty of Squamish, Selux Inula Bol­lards and Columns, along with Exelia Columns were used through­out the space. Quad­rant light­ing, achieved with Inula, allows for custom light­ing pat­terns for dif­fer­ent areas, and main­tains the view of the night sky. Inula is Dark Sky approved, and was selected for the spe­cific reason of effi­ciently light­ing the area, with­out uplight. Exelia with Tritec was used on the walk­ways between build­ings – help­ing with facial recog­ni­tion and cre­at­ing a feel­ing of warmth.

  • The Inula Bollard and Column are sophisticated and environmentally friendly pathway and area luminaires with no up light. The proprietary optic provides clean lighting patterns with no striations. A recessed LED light engine, convex cone shaped light chamber, and matte Black finish provides a BUG up light rating of U0.
  • A visually comfortable and energy efficient pedestrian pathway luminaire, perfect for a designer in need of a column with no uplight and high performance. Whether you are illuminating pathways, courtyards, entrances or parks, Exelia provides comfort and security, while adding to the beautiful landscape. Exelia offers beautiful, clean lighting with three different possible light engines - Selux proprietary Gen5 silicone optics or Tritec stackable light modules. IES Type II and V distributions are available with IDA-Approved “Dark Sky Friendly” full cutoff distribution.
