76 Landscape Architect and Specifier News Avenida Refinida, Palos Verdes Estates, Calif. – 2017 Silver Anthony Bogdanovich Imagine Lighting Co. San Pedro, Calif. The designer used 5 brass path lights, 13 brass directional fixtures and 1 copper down light to highlight the large potted plant at the entryway to the interior courtyard of a small residence. Using a cross lighting pattern, the designer was able to fill the back planter with even levels of light, creating a beautiful mirror image on the pool surface. Placing the lighting between the tree line and front level succulents created both silhouetting and backlighting effects. The most prominent feature became the featured potted plant at the entryway. The Barn – 2017 Silver Michael Sestak Sestak Lighting Design Carmichael, Calif. The BARN is the Bridge District's new indoor/outdoor culinary and venue on West Sacramento's riverfront. Its curving 80-foot long sculptural canopy is 20' tall. Lighting the structure without creating glare for the residential condos was required. Location of the lights was a challenge because of underground utilities (storage tanks) and sidewalk setbacks. Four custom fabricated poles (20" to 30" tall) were built to provide the perfect projection angles to illuminate the surface of the BARN. Each pole holds 5 RGBW LED fixtures, and each fixture has a specific lens according to the shape of light needed. All fixtures have an extended glare shield (a 45° cut off). The bases of the poles have remote power supplies that connect via CAT6 data cables to the utility room. The ethernet- based light lets the operator control the lights on site or remotely. The lights turn on at dusk and off at dawn with white light, but dynamic colored effects can be produced when desired. Corona – 2017 Silver Nicholas Schriver Decorating Elves, Inc. St. Petersburg, Fla. The landscape and palms are all illuminated with Kichler bullet and path lights with halogen lamps, powered by a 900W SS transformer. The pergola is down lit with the same bullet lights. The fireplace is illuminated with 6" Kichler LED bar lights. Paver lights allow the homeowners to safely step down to the recessed kitchen/pool bar, which is also illuminated with LED bar lights. Water Color – 2017 Silver Jeff Hannah Accents Lighting Joliet, IL This fire table sits over a pool's shallow end. The designer cut and powder coated extruded aluminum channels to match the stone coping and installed a RGB+WW LED light ribbon in the channels under the stone coping. A remote control adjusts the speeds of the color changing, or can freeze on any color. 4 4 7 5 6 6 7 5
