Green Building & Design’s September/October 2014 issue features the New Mexico State University Center for the Arts, in the editorial Artfully Engineered. The article cites the project’s lighting as a key element in its achieving LEED Gold certification. In addition to meeting a very low construction budget, the lighting has an energy usage of 24% below code allowance.
CBBLD designed the Center’s night imagery lighting, house lighting for its 450-seat theater, and public spaces including a triple-height atrium and a large, open rehearsal space. The project was completed in collaboration with Holzman Moss Bottino Architects.
