The light from Wave-Field is dialogue with the lights of Manhattan high-rises. ???Must visit in order to immerse yourself within the unique soundscape by the amazing Mitchell Akiyama. ・・・ #Repost @fomofeed (@get_repost) ・・・ WHAT: WAVE-FIELD. Featuring eight seesaws of varying sizes, Wave-Field’s main intention is to give people agency over the urban site the artwork inhabits. All spectators, whether active or passive, are immersed in a heteromorphic soundscape, forming an undulating field that fluctuates between surprising syncopations and abstract sound expansions. Each seesaw is inhabited by a foreign entity, each with its own temperament and its own musical vocabulary. Set in motion, they burst into a menagerie of electric calls that resonate with the site’s urban pulse, blurring the boundaries between sound and landscape. . WHERE: Seaport Square, next to Pier 17 .

Last year, our team completed is largest project of note, the illumination of the Sun Life Building in Montreal. This turnkey project was commissioned to mark the 100th anniversary of the notable 26-story structure which was the largest building in the British Empire for over fifty years. Playing upon the metaphor of the rising sun and the existing clarion sound system which has been in use since Expo 67, the lighting design rises dynamically from the base to the crown of the building, in tandem with any number of acoustic accompaniments. In order to increase the perceived height of the building, the design accentuates the vertical elements of the building composition, such as the engaged columns on the main facades and the free-standing ionic columns of the front portico and balconies of the 17th floor. • • En raison du caractère patrimonial de l’édifice, les nouveaux luminaires devaient prioriser une esthétique discrète, une installation non-invasive ainsi qu’un besoin minimal d’entretien. Une analyse soignée de l’orientation des faisceaux étroits des luminaires a été performé pour éviter le voilement du ciel étoilé et l’éblouissement des usagers des espaces intérieurs. Le nouveau système d’éclairage des façades génère une économie d’énergie de 25% en comparant avec les équipements précédents tout en augmentant le nombre de luminaires et l’impact de l’édifice SunLife dans le paysage nocturne. Tout récemment, le projet est devenue récipiendaire du Prix d'excellence de l'IESNA, soit le plus grand honneur en éclairage en amérique du nord - quel beau cadeau pour notre 10e anniversaire! • • #lightingdesign #architecturallighting #heritagelighting #facadelighting #canadianlandmark #sunlifebuilding #montreal #10years #csdesign #celebration • • @sunlifeca @sunlifeqc photos by @paul_poirier
We have worked on spaces for Air Canada for a decade now and the most recent project was completed two years ago at Pearson International Airport in Toronto with our longtime collaborators Heekyung Duquette and Eric Majer. The Air Canada Signature Suite is a luxury lounge available exclusively to the airline’s top International Business customers at its Toronto Pearson global hub. With the intention of fulfilling the clientele’s increased desire for more customization, more flexibility and higher quality at every step of the way, Air Canada has created a premium experience unrivaled in North America. Due to the international schedule of the lounge which remains open for 19 hours a day, lighting control was finely tuned in order to create lighting scenes that would welcome travelers in a sensitive manner at all times of the day, differentiating the lounge from the over lit areas of the rest of the airport. • • Accueillant chaleureusement les visiteurs par un habillage de claustras en bois d’érable, l’espace de 6,400 pi2 offre aux voyageurs une échappatoire à la frénésie qui habite le reste de l’aéroport, leur offrant un lieu serein et élégant afin de se reposer et de se recharger. Afin d’accentuer le caractère intime du salon tout en mettant en valeur les œuvres canadiennes de façon discrète et intégrée, des tons chaleureux ont été sélectionnés pour éclairer l’espace principal du salon. Surmontant les difficultés dues à l’absence d’un plafond fixe, les sources lumineuses ont été positionnées à proximité du sol et du visiteur, permettant aux voyageurs de concentrer leur attention sur l’expérience culinaire sophistiquée tout en créant un espace invitant et propice à la détente. • • #lightingdesign #airportlighting #travelbreak #aircanadalounge #pearson #toronto #yyz #signaturesuite #travellinginstyle #heekyungduquette #ericmajerarchitect #10years #csdesign • • @aircanada photos by @adrienwilliamsphotos
Over the years, we have created signature lighting schemes for many local, national and internation retail brands including ALDO, Metro and the SAQ. Lighting plays a crucial role in retail design to set the tone for the customer's experience, underline brand identity as well as showcase products in their best possible way. Three years ago, we collaborated with AEdifica on a store in Toronto which pushes the limits of the conceptual retail model. In addition to the exclusive merchandise offering, this store of 9000 square feet seamlessly integrates a high-level training gym for athletes and community, an artisanal customization space, and a barbershop. On the ground floor, a combination of focused and wallwash projectors on suspended track illuminate floor displays with a vivid white light. This contrasted effect, paired with dark ceiling treatments and the highlighted floating figure of Jumpman, call to mind the court atmosphere on a game night. • • Nous sommes fiers et heureux d'avoir collaborer avec AEdifica à plusieurs reprises sur la réalisation d'environments commerciaux lauréats pour des marques tel que Lolë et Avril. Pour la boutique Jordan à Toronto, les critères de conception en éclairage dépassent les demandes typiques dans un programme commerciale afin de gérer le fonctions chevauchantes de l'espace. Ornant les murs, des installations artistiques, illuminées grâce à un éclairage rasant, plongent le client dans une expérience immersive de la culture du basketball de Toronto. Dans l’ensemble du projet, l’éclairage permet de se projeter symboliquement, comme dans l’espace commercial, ou littéralement, comme dans la salle d’entrainement, dans l’univers dynamique de Michael Jordan. • • @jumpman23 @mlauzon_aedifica
Four years ago, we were busy detailing the lighting integration in the new Montreal Museum of Fine Arts Peace Pavilion. CS Design was retained to support the design team - led by Atelier TAG + Jodoin Lamarre Pratte architectes - at all stages of project development, with an emphasis on the main public spaces of the museum. The main façade is wrapped with a delicate aluminum screen, designed to filter daylight while engaging in a dialog with the more opaque white marble volumes of the original museum pavilions. At night the light effect is reversed with the vertical wooden wall reflecting a warm light which bleeds out to the street, dematerializing and throwing the screen elements into silhouette. • • Le nouveau Pavillon pour la paix accueille la prestigieuse collection de Michal et Renata Hornstein, et héberge des espaces éducatifs et communautaires du musée. Ce 4000 m2 d’agrandissement distribué sur 6 niveaux est situé sur la rue Bishop, au sud du pavillon Jean-Noël Desmarais. La mise en lumière de l'espace de circulation verticale, où l'escalier fut traité comme une œuvre d'art, fut central à l'exercice de CS Design ainsi qu'à l'expérience du pavillion, tant à l'intérieur que de l'extérieur. Dans l’ensemble du projet, des dispositifs de montage et de camouflage pour les appareils d’éclairage ont été créés sur mesure pour minimiser l'apparence du matériel d'éclairage et éliminer la nécessité de percer les plafonds. • • @jodoinlamarrepratte.arch @mbammtl
Created for the Venice Architectural Biennale of 2014, the Canadian Pavilion played host to an exhibition entitled “Arctic Adaptations: Nunavut at 15”. In a collaborative design effort, Lateral Office for Architecture coordinated the exhibit to celebrate the fifteenth anniversary of the territory’s founding. Ringing the perimeter of the pavilion, a series of bas-relief discs representing distinct Nordic communities are arrayed. Using a vertical grazing technique designed to emphasize texture and lift the discs from their backdrop, the elements float like phases of the moon against the night sky. As a composition, the lighting of the Canadian pavilion is inspired by the strong horizon line of the northern winter landscape. Punctuated by delicate vertical lines of light, a tension between the resilience of the boreal vegetation and the snow is recalled. • • En architecture, c'est un honneur singulier de pouvoir représenter son pays à la Biennale de Venise. Pour la Biennale d’architecture de 2014, le Pavillon du Canada a présenté un projet qui s’intitulait Adaptations à l’Arctique : Nunavut à 15. L’exposition, réalisée par Lateral Office célébrait le 15e anniversaire de la fondation du Nunavut en 1999. Sous la thématique générale de l’architecture de l’Arctique, l’exposition devait présenter l’environnement bâti actuel et futur du Nunavik, dans un environnement immersif évoquant le Grand Nord. Ce faisant, le concept d’éclairage devait, d’une part, mettre en lumière les artéfacts et, d’autre part, participer à la création d’une atmosphère et d’une luminosité singulièrement nordique. • • @lateraloffice @venice.architecture.biennale @canada @canadian.architects
Phoebe Greenberg, founder and director of the PHI Center, championed the meticulous restoration and reinvention of an Old Montreal heritage building, transforming it from a nineteenth century warehouse into an arts center and creative hub, endowed with the latest building technology. Six years ago, that vision came to life. CS Design was involved in all phases of the project design, from interior to exterior illumination as well as the management of the LEED dossier for lighting and lighting controls. The PHI Center has achieved a LEED Gold certification. Anchoring the Center visually and structurally, a concrete shear wall pierces the building from basement to roof, drawing daylight from a punctual skylight. In a nod to the technological vocation of the Center, daylight is captured at the apex of the void and then data is relayed to LEDs, which amplify their light output and re-introduce it in the lower levels. Symbolically unifying the twin themes of technology and sustainability, this light feature animates the space, offering multiple readings of the old and new architecture over time. • • Il y a 6 ans, notre équipe a contribué à la réalisation de la vision de Mme Phoebe Greenberg, fondatrice et directrice du Centre PHI, en participant à la méticuleuse restauration d'un édifice patrimoinial du Vieux Montréal où siège deromais l'institution culturelle. Le mandat de CS Design pour ce projet, allant de l’éclairage des espaces intérieurs à la mise en lumière de l’extérieure, devait répondre à de multiples défis, en commençant par la valorisation de l’interaction entre l’architecture d’origine et les additions contemporaines. Dû au large spectre d’activités soutenues par le centre Phi, telles des projections, séminaires ou expositions interactives, le travail d’éclairage devait également rendre hautement adaptables les espaces, afin que chaque configuration adoptée paraisse naturelle. L’expertise en éclairage a permis de mettre en valeur les espaces modulables, tout en préservant l’intégrité des œuvres qui y sont présentées. • • @phicentre @in_situ_atelier_darchitecture
Community airports, such as the Quaqtaq Airport, play an indispensable role in Canada's far North. In addition to ensuring the transport of travellers and goods, the symbolic importance of these airports as gateways to the communities cannot be underestimated. Where the original series of airports were conceived as standardized constructions, the new constructions embrace their role as unique signifiers of the individual communities. Seven years ago, we had the opportunity to support FGMDA (now EVOQ architects) with the illumination of the interior and exterior of the Quaqtaq Airport and its elaborate scultptural whale representations. The short construction season and demanding climactic conditions combined to make the choice of equipment for this project especially critical. • • Les aéroports communautaires comme celui de Quaqtaq sont des infrastructures indispensables pour les communautés du Grand Nord canadien. Il y a sept ans, nous avions collaboré avec FGMDA (maintenant EVOQ architecture) pour la mise en lumière de leur architecture avant-gardiste se distinguant notamment par sa forme générale et par son ornementation de l'ancienne génération d'aéroports de cette région. Grâce à un éclairage étudié, ces fins profils de plastique bigarré semblent nager librement dans l’atmosphère bleutée des nuits nordiques. L’emplacement isolé et le climat aride figurent aussi parmi les contraintes majeures qu’il a fallu considérer lors du choix des appareils d'éclairage. • • @evoqarchitecture @canada
Eight years ago the STM (Société de transport de Montréal) celebrated it’s 150th anniversary. In a reciprocal gesture to the RATP, who donated the art nouveau style gateway to the Square Victoria entrance of the metro, the STM gifted a work art entitled La Voix Lactée by montreal-based artist Geneviève Cadieux to Saint-Lazare station in Paris. This work acts in dialogue with its counterpart La Voie Lactée which sits perched atop the Musée d’art contemporain. In Montreal the work is backlit, evanescent and seen from a distance, while in Paris the artwork is a shimmering, tactile glass mosaic. It was a true collaborative experience working in the artist’s studio with full scale mock-ups to test out different lighting options and angles that would make the artwork shine without causing glare to commuters passing by. • • La STM a célébré sont 150e anniversaire en 2011. Pour faire écho au cadeau de la RATP en 2003 de l’entrée de métro distinctif à la station Square Victoria, la STM a fait don d’une œuvre de l’artiste montréalaise, Geneviève Cadieux, pour orner les murs de la station Saint-Lazare à Paris. L’œuvre, intitulé La Voix Lactée, agit en dialogue avec son homologue, La Voie Lactée qui habite le toit du MACM. À Montréal, l’œuvre rétroéclairer s’expérience à distance tandis qu’à Paris, la mosaïque tactile et scintillante s’observe de très près. L’exercice de mise en lumière fut entièrement collaboratif et fondé sur l’expérimentation à pleine échelle dans l’atelier de l’artiste pour valider les meilleurs angles d’incidence de la lumière pour mettre en valeur l’œuvre sans éblouir les observateurs en circulation. • • @samitannoury #lightingdesign #artlighting #paris #genevievecadieux #mtlartist #lavoielactée #lavoixlactée #metrodeparis #stm #ratp #10years #csdesign
Nine years ago, we had the pleasure of collaborating with Paul Davis Architects on an adaptive reuse of a heritage waterfront property in Newport Beach California. The meticulous attention to detail and respect for the original architecture, garnered this project a Preservation Design Award upon completion. Exploiting the remarkable bones of the original structure, with its 18-foot ceilings and floor to slab windows affording views out over the harbour, this building speaks of transparency, reflections and a layered exposition of time. These three themes guided both architecture and lighting interventions throughout. A series of daylight simulation exercises were central to the project as they resulted in the application of filters to reduce contrast and glare, while preserving the transparency, on the long south-facing façade which benefited from intense daylight exposure. • • Il y a neuf ans, nous avons eu le plaisir de collaborer avec Paul Davis Architects sur la la conversion d’un restaurant portuaire en une vibrante boutique de luxe en Californie. Avec sa coque structurale distinctive, son abondance de fenêtres cintrées vertigineuses et ses plafonds de presque 6 mètres de haut, ce bâtiment évoque la transparence, la réflectivité, la mémoire du lieu. Ce sont ces thèmes qui ont guidés le projet et sa mise en lumière à travers toutes ses phases. Aligné selon un axe est-ouest, l’espace principal, situé au sud, est la portion du bâtiment subissant l’exposition la plus intense au soleil. Ce sont des exercises de simulation de lumière diurne qui ont informé l'application de filtres sur le vitrage pour limiter les contrastes et l'éblouissement tout en préservant la transparence majestueuse du lieu. • • @paul_davis_architects @amareesnewport
Ten years ago, contractors broke ground on James Square on McGill University's lower campus. This collaboration with WAA Landscape Architecture was the first project to follow the guidelines of our lighting masterplan for the downtown campus of McGill University. This plan was influenced and reinforces the general concepts presented in the Diamond Schmitt Architects campus masterplan (2005-2006), and sought to harmonize both the core campus’ built environment with a growing collection of satellite locations and adjacent city lighting installations.  Through the drafting of functional and aesthetic guidelines, the plan serves as a guide for all current and future exterior campus lighting projects. James Square, like many other public areas of the campus, also features works from McGill Art collection including Exaltation by Giovanni Porretta (1980-81) and Polypède by Charles Daudelin (1967) pictured here. • • Il y a déjà 10 ans maintenant que les travaux ont débuté au Square James sur le campus de l'université McGill. Cette collaboration avec WAA Architecture de Paysage fut le premier projet employant les principes établis dans notre plan de mise en lumière pour le campus. Ce plan devait d’une part, renforcer les grandes lignes du plan directeur de Diamond Schmitt Architectes (2005-2006), et d’autre part, unifier les terrains satellites au campus urbain central, grâce à l’harmonisation des installations d’éclairage. En fournissant des directives fonctionnelles et esthétiques, le plan sert désormais de guide pour les projets d’éclairage extérieur en cours et à venir. Le Square James est l'hôte de plusieurs œuvres d'art de la collection de l'université incluant Exaltation par Giovanni Porretta (1980-81) et Polypède par Charles Daudelin (1967) imagé ici. • • @mcgillu @mcgillfacilities @mcgillalumni

What it is and what it could be. Images and analysis from our submission to the 2017 Professional Lighting Design Competition entitled Night Light | Night Life. The scheme aimed to reimagine the lighting of large scale vehicular infrastructure as a dynamic area that would respond to the passage of different types of users: pedestrians, cyclists and drivers. The lighting design is expressed as a glimpse into a starry sky - a view which is seldom available in most metropolises due to excessive light pollution.
