Luminis Lights up Historic Chicago Residential Architecture

Luminis Lighting released its recent outdoor lighting project at Julia Lathrop Homes in Chicago, USA. The buildings were constructed as a public housing development during the Great Depression. The building including 1,116 units of mixed-income housing were restored and modernized with parking, driveways, walkways and surrounding green space.

For staying true to the designs of the original architects, there was a focus on restoring building exteriors, including brickwork and limestone pillars, to their former glory. Luminis’ Eclipse Mini EC600 fixtures were selected to illuminate the driveways and walkways throughout the residential complex. The classic design of the black luminaires complements the beautifully restored architecture.

All luminaires have a 3000K color temperature, and Eclipse’s advanced silicone optics offer greater color stability and performance, so residents and guests experience a warm, welcoming illumination as they enter the complex by car or on foot.

Each of the sixty-five Eclipse luminaires is affixed to a Luminis 5” diameter round aluminum pole designed to offer maximum resistance to wind load. The components are made of a corrosion-resistant aluminum alloy and hardware is stainless steel. Combined with Luminis' meticulous in-house powder coating technique that provides the highest paint quality and adhesion for protection against the weather, Eclipse will stand up to the most severe Chicago winters.

Developers will be seeking LEED and Enterprise Green Communities certifications in the affordable housing sector category. Energy efficiency is one of the benchmarks, and Eclipse is up to the challenge. It delivers significant advantages in lighting efficiency and energy saving and it has a lifetime beyond 130,000 hours.
