Tridel 300 Front Street in Toronto is a con­do­minium with a dif­fi­cult light­ing sit­u­a­tion on the out­door pool and patio area – there were only three sides of the space acces­si­ble, with the south-facing wall being a giant perime­ter. The goal was to create a stream­lined design with­out taking up too much space with too many light posts.

Olivio from Selux was chosen to help make the min­i­mal­ist design pos­si­ble, with three 26-foot poles and mul­ti­ple heads on each pole. In order to achieve the IES rec­om­mended 10 foot-can­dles, the fix­tures were placed strate­gi­cally and with light pol­lu­tion and Dark Sky-friendly require­ments in mind. LEED com­pli­ance was also con­sid­ered, as the build­ing is pur­su­ing LEED Gold.

By reduc­ing the number of poles and uti­liz­ing the stream­lined fix­ture heads, it allowed for a the­atri­cal light­ing effect with a more roman­tic feel­ing that also show­cases the modern fur­nish­ings. The fix­ture poles are sim­i­lar to ones being used along the Toronto water­front – vis­i­ble from the patio, which cre­ates a styl­ish tie-in.
