THE LIT BROTHERS BUILDING

USA

The Lit Brothers Building is in fact a full block comprised of approximately 33 buildings. In 2016 the façade lighting was transformed by The Lighting Practice. The new design won the 2016 Award of Merit: The Illuminating Engineering Society and the 2016 Certificate of Merit: IES Philadelphia Section.

The Lighting Practice used KiNet from a Pharos LPC 4 to control the façade to lighting with a full spectrum of colours and a variety of dynamic light effects
In total, 504 windows are illuminated with linear RGBW LED luminaires mounted at each sill
In order to ensure the new lighting is balanced sensitively with the Victorian architecture, the fixtures all have custom enclosures painted to match the building façade
Changes to the lighting display can be made via an on-site TPC or remote desktop
