The Mass­a­chu­setts Port Author­ity (Mass­Port) project cre­ated a unique park­ing garage that allows for ample park­ing while pro­vid­ing a user expe­ri­ence that ties into the urban feel­ing of the South Boston Water­front Dis­trict. The South Boston Water­front Trans­porta­tion Center (SBWTC) includes a multi-level park­ing garage with approx­i­mately 1,500 park­ing spaces that is built over the I-90 tunnel struc­ture that was part of the Cen­tral Artery and Tunnel Project.

The light­ing is a cru­cial part to both the user expe­ri­ence as well as the safety pro­vided by this project. Olivio Sis­tema was selected for the open areas, allow­ing Olivio heads to be aimed where the designer chose – this cre­ates a well-lit, inter­est­ing design for trav­el­ers.

Custom Wet Loca­tion M100 LEDs in square poles and bol­lards allow for safety light­ing that is sub­jected to the ele­ments. Lining the walk­ways in the garage, the poles and bol­lards create a well-lit envi­ron­ment that pro­vides a feel­ing of secu­rity to all who pass.

  • Olivio is an impressive, highly efficient lighting concept for urban living environments.
