BG worked alongside partner, Oz Architecture, to develop the Modera Cook Street luxury apartment complex. Strategically located at the intersection of 2nd Avenue and Cook Street, this proposed five-story development boasts 110 residential units and accommodates 165 parking spaces, spanning 0.89 acres. BG’s team provided full MEP services for this complex, in addition to specialty lighting.

Specialty lighting services were provided for the amenity spaces, including lobby, fitness studio, and roof top terrace, as well as the units. As the sun sets, the rooftop bar and pool area come alive, bathed in thoughtfully placed lighting. The combination of large-scale custom lanterns and light columns, integrated with speakers, create a glamorous yet relaxed atmosphere. The low level illuminated seating areas, and gentle glow on lush landscapes encourage communal gathering. Three season outdoor living in Colorado provides a multitude of opportunities to create unique personal and community gathering spaces. Most of the units have large terraces that can be used for entertaining or a sense refuge from the city.

Intricate lighting details were carefully coordinated in the amenity spaces to seamlessly integrate with the architecture. Unique custom fixtures, developed by the interiors team, blend seamlessly with vertical linear lighting and hidden vertical cove lighting to highlight the unique architectural features. Linear lighting elements continue into the fitness and yoga areas, creating unique ceiling features that help to energize the space. Our commitment to a meticulous lighting design is evident in every element of these amenity spaces, setting a new standard for luxury living.

This luxury 5-bedroom private residence at the Four Seasons Vail boasts a large open dining/living/kitchen area with plenty of space for entertaining. BG provided lighting design services, from coordination of custom lighting details to keypad engravings and scene settings. Architectural lighting was designed to disappear, while enhancing the interior architecture and finishes. This allowed the modern decorative lighting to really make a statement.

Recessed adjustable accent lighting was used throughout to highlight artwork and provide task lighting at counter surfaces and sinks. BG performed art aiming studies to ensure that art accents were placed at the appropriate distance off the wall and the beam angle was appropriate for the artwork size. Concealed linear lighting was used to accentuate drapery, shelving, transitions, and stone finishes. Detailed elevations were provided to ensure that the linear lighting locations were well coordinated and easy for the contractor to understand. The lighting control system was carefully coordinated with the A/V integrator to incorporate shade control into the lighting keypads. Lighting scenes were also a critical part of the design, allowing the space to seamlessly transition from a bright daylight space to a moody nighttime scene.

Visitors are drawn to the Taos Ski Valley to experience rich spiritual traditions, an artisan scene with a thriving pulse of music, and the raw, natural beauty of Taos, a storied town and home to the World Heritage Site’s Taos Pueblo. Founded more than 60 years ago, the awe inspiring surrounding to the area is home to The Blake Residences, a residential complex of 24 private homes located in the heart of the village.

BG worked with architectural partners Studio Southwest from Albuquerque and Hart Howerton from New York to provide lighting design for the 74,192 square foot building where the recessed lighting offers a warm color temperature throughout the residences to complement the warm finishes and highlight southwestern design elements. The residences are mere feet away from The Blake at Taos Ski Valley and renowned amenities including local shopping, distinctive cuisine, a mountain market which BG also worked on, and a new ice-skating rink. One, two, and three-bedroom options are available with fully equipped, high-end kitchens, and 24-hour service from on-call Hausmesiters to make guests visits extra special.

This residential mixed use hospitality facility, tucked in moonlight basin Montana, houses a restaurant, retail, community room, kids room, gym and pool. 35,000 square feet of hospitality space allows patrons to relax, play and socialize should they want to venture down from their cozy rooms above. The intent of this facility is to create an atmosphere, in the middle of nowhere, to escape, recreate, and just enjoy one another. The architecture draws in natural elements, such as wood and stone, to blend with the surrounding nature in which it rests. Much of the lighting design was focused on enhancing these natural materials to accentuate the richness of the encompassing elements.

The systems included a 500 square foot thermal solar array, low-temperature condensing boiler plant, economizer free-cooling for rooms with intense solar gain, a remote chiller plant, and a 10,000 square foot snowmelt system.
