The 8,875-square-foot Detroit Lumen restaurant in Beacon Park features 125 indoor seats. The entire dining space is surrounded by sliding glass windows that allow it to convert into a semi-outdoor space in warm weather. Outside, the restaurant boasts another 150 seats spanning the green roof and the surrounding sidewalks. The ground surrounding the building is heated to melt snow and ice in the winter.
Lighting and landscape elements coexist in a complex network within the 1.5 acre park. Hundreds of luminaires, electrical dependencies and data lines weave within intentional seasonally-shifting textures of over 10,000 diverse plants. The layers of light for seating, trees, paths and activities, all individually controllable via DMX, designed to expand the definition of ‘occupied’ beyond people; the lighting is also influenced by other environmental influences - like wind, temperature, and precipitation. Custom lighting elements, lighting controls, materials, and plant juxtapositions help in achieving a successful balance between technology and ecology.
The project achieved LEED Silver certification.
