This luxury ranch offers farm-to-table dining, an event pavilion, brewery, distillery, climate-controlled wine cellar, tasting room, spirit bar, bakery, and creamery. BG provided mechanical, plumbing, electrical, and lighting design services to help make this destination come to life.

Creating a warm and inviting environment was very important when designing the lighting. BG performed several mockups to ensure the dining tables would be accented perfectly from track high above and that the back bars would really showcase the incredible wine and liquor collections with concealed accent lighting. In the wine cave, special care was taken to filter out UV wavelengths from the light source to minimize any potentially harmful effects to the expansive wine selection.

Coordination with the interiors team and the millworker included a detailed shop drawing review, which proved crucial to provide lighting details that were discrete and effective. To mimic traditional incandescent light sources, BG reviewed samples of several tapelights of different color temperatures, settling on a 2350K option that extracted a warmth from the wood finishes.

In order to make this space really come to life at night, BG spent several days and nights on site aiming the lighting to highlight artwork, sculptures, and displays. Scene settings were also paramount in providing the perfect ambiance from morning to night. BG’s Senior Lighting Project Director, Anna-Lisa Conners, remarks on the importance of aim & focus visits on projects: “On site aiming has proven so very critical to the fruition of our designs. It is the icing on the cake, the final touch that brings cohesion and completion to our lighting design.”
