The forum shop had lasted about three years, a fair amount
of time by Las Vegas standards before a remodel. The remodel, basically cosmetic, aimed to
redefine the space with more of an upscale feeling emphasizing a streamlined appearance.
The new lighting scheme removed a number of decorative neon fixtures, and an assortment of
low voltage units as well as some other industrial looking ceiling lights. All of the
existing fluorescent lamps were changed from cool white to a 3K tri phosphor lamp. Low
profile parabolic cube cell louvers were installed to replace the existing white acrylic
type throughout the store. A track fixture with an outdated low voltage system was
removed and replace with 100 watt par 38 " IR" type lamps. Two custom pendant
type linear fixtures were fabricated for the project they house blue neon and
adjustable MR16 spots. Neon and a formed cove is added to the perimeter are below the
cloud ceiling ( image below ). The result is higher levels of illumination on the
merchandise and a better overall color balance.
