BLVD63 Apartments
San Diego, CA

tk1sc’s boutique lighting design team, studioK1, provided architectural lighting design services on this new, mixed-use project. This development is comprised of 332 apartments, amenity spaces, and 10,000 square feet of retail. The apartments are geared towards the student population at SDSU. The complex consists of a 4-story contemporary building arranged in courtyard configurations. Connections from the pedestrian spine to the internal courtyard spaces link the community gathering spaces with the more passive courtyard spaces. Internally, the project provides a variety of amenities and spaces that enhance the user’s experience. Amenities include a clubhouse, pools, a social lounge, a chill zone, and plenty of outdoor recreation areas for residents to gather for a game of sand volleyball, bocce, or picnicking.

Marriot Hotel - Downtown LA
Los Angeles, CA

After 40 years, this Flagship airport hotel received an extensive renovation of the registration, restaurant and lobby areas, and the 16th floor lounge. The existing building has limited ceiling clearances, antiquated lighting controls and an electrical system that was near capacity. There was a lot to overcome, and this operational hotel never closed its doors during renovation. Working with the hotel brand’s design team, a sleek, modern interior design with rectilinear forms and tightly integrated lighting and mechanical details emerged. Square and rectangular fixtures were selected to reinforce this design vocabulary. While a variety of LED fixture styles were used, a common fixture family was selected for ease of maintenance, and the reduced loads did not require upgrades to the existing electrical service. Architectural, structural, mechanical, food service and even art elements were carefully coordinated with lighting placement to minimize fixture views and potential glare, ensuring the best fixture placement and integration.
