Alvarado Square went through a large ren­o­va­tion and expan­sion includ­ing the remodel of the Bernalillo County Gov­ern­ment Build­ing. The ren­o­va­tion included the remodel of the main Alvarado Square build­ing and the con­struc­tion of a new build­ing for the County Com­mis­sion cham­bers. The new cut­ting-edge 12,000 sq. ft facil­ity is adja­cent to the exist­ing build­ing. It is designed to be a great meet­ing space for the public, hold­ing up to 200 people. The first phase included a remodel of an employee health clinic, a gym, café, & rescue phones. The next phase included a rooftop designed for social gath­er­ings, a recon­fig­u­ra­tion of the cus­tomer park­ing lot, and instal­la­tion of LED lights through­out the center. The exte­rior pole mounted lights used through­out is the Selux Mis­tella™.

Mis­tella™ was a per­fect choice for this project. The simple geo­met­ric form allows it to adapt to both, new modern ren­o­va­tions and the tra­di­tional exist­ing build­ings nearby. Mis­tella™ inte­grated per­fectly into the newly remod­eled archi­tec­tural set­ting. The design­ers of Alvarado Square decided on the 12ft. Selux Mis­tella™ with the Selux sig­na­ture GEN5 LED light engine (with pro­pri­etary sil­i­cone optics) at the appro­pri­ate lumen output and dis­tri­b­u­tion for the appli­ca­tion. The supe­rior per­for­mance and bal­anced dis­tri­b­u­tion pro­vide a sense of secu­rity for anyone gath­er­ing or walk­ing at night. The Mis­tella™ used through­out the Square was also painted in Selux stan­dard white finish from our Tiger Drylac cer­ti­fied facil­ity, ful­fill­ing the archi­tec­tural appeal and over­all look of Alvarado Square and Bernalillo Gov­ern­ment Build­ing.

  • An up-to-date architectural post top design with clean, flowing lines and a modest sophistication. Optically, Mistella™ can meet the demands of today's lighting designers, architects, and engineers with two diffuse lens or bowl options or Gen5 optical system for soft or defined lighting effects. The scale of the fixture and lumen packages up to 10,000 lumens is appropriate for mounting heights of 8 to 18 feet above grade. Mistella™ comes in single or double arm and wall mount arrangements for use with 3 1/2" and 4" poles with 3 1/2" tenon. Mistella™ also features its own signature pole, with flats on two sides that continues the design detail from luminaire arms to pole base.
