With the build­ing design inspired by the Rocky Moun­tains, this twin office tower in Cal­gary, Alberta is the third tallest in the city. Eighth Avenue Place is the latest, most lux­u­ri­ous office tower to grace the Cal­gary sky. A truly mon­u­men­tal piece of modern archi­tec­ture, it is also one of the first cer­ti­fied LEED Plat­inum office com­plexes in all of Canada.

Not only does Eighth Avenue Place house some of the most promi­nent Cal­gary busi­ness lead­ers, it is a marvel of archi­tec­tural and sus­tain­able design — making it Calgary’s most promi­nent and lux­u­ri­ous busi­ness address.

Selux MTR Columns and wall sconce were selected for this project for energy effi­ciency, clean design and visual com­fort.

  • The MTR is a family of diffuse exterior luminaires that includes Round and Square Columns and Bollards. The MTR refractor optic incorporates the light-bending properties of a prism, directing the light precisely where you need it most, with minimum intensity at planar viewing angles. The MTR bollards are installed below or near to eye level in environments where minimizing glare is especially important such as car parks or pedestrian walkways. They mark out entrance areas and paths, act as a means of orientation, and at the same time can help to structure a space. This is cleverly achieved through their unique design, using MTR refractors which reduce glare and enhance visual comfort, while also reflecting a small amount of light upward, providing torso illumination for recognition and depth perception and enhancing the sense of security and visual comfort.
