Lehigh Health Science Technology Building
The Lehigh University Health, Science and Technology building is the largest building on the campus at almost 200,000 sq ft. and completed in Spring 2022. It provides the most state-of-the-art environment for research on the university’s campus. Outside it has a pedestrian bridge that is lit with Selux wet location fixtures that connect the new building to Lehigh’s other facilities. The appealing pathways are lit with Selux Olivio Sistema and Sistema 2, providing perfect atmospheric illumination as well as versatility to be able to position the spot where it is needed. The large glass windows invite an observer from the outside to see what research is being performed inward. Inside the building is large open-concept spaces with glass walls replacing the closed-in offices and narrow hallways that were once used, encouraging more collaboration and communication between faculty and students as well as putting the research on display for all to see. The open staircases offer views between floors, ensuring the entire space feels open and connected.
Selux Piix™ MRC was used all throughout for its efficient, precision lighting without uncomfortable high-angle glare. The light source is hidden deep within the housing creating a a quiet ceiling so the focus can remain on the effect of the light within the HST space.
