West Los Angeles Municipal Court - Airport Branch





The major challenge in lighting this courthouse was meeting stringent budget requirements while creating a nighttime signature.  Lighting in corridors and offices uses the same linear fluorescent lighting solution, filling the space with light so that the exterior glass wall glows with the light from within.  Courtroom lighting was simple, but an unusual wiring configuration allows for lighting levels to accommodate a variety of visual tasks.
