Margulies Perruzzi Architects Receives Illuminating Engineering Society Boston Section 2012 Illumination Award

Margulies Perruzzi Architects (MPA), one of Boston’s most innovative architectural and interior design firms, today announced that it has received a Section Award from the Boston Section of the Illuminating Engineering Society for the 2012 Illumination Awards program. The award recognizes MPA’s lighting design for the 32,000 SF interior fit-up of Philips’ new high performance workspace in Andover, Massachusetts. Philips is a globally diversified health and well-being company focused on improving people’s lives through timely innovations.

The IES Illumination Awards provide a unique opportunity for public recognition of professionalism, ingenuity, and originality in lighting design based upon the individual merit of each entry.

“Philips’ new space leverages both new lighting technology and dynamic office design to create a livable, workable and sustainable high performance workspace,” said Dianne Dunnell, IIDA, LEED AP, senior associate at Margulies Perruzzi Architects. “The design team worked together to envision and execute this innovative lighting design concept, and we are honored to be recognized by the IES for our efforts.”

MPA’s objective for the lighting design was to reinforce Philips’ brand by maximizing daylighting, aligning specifications with function, and offering a sustainable solution utilizing new lighting technology. Philips’ own LED light fixtures, lamps and controls were used throughout the project. Over 90% of the lighting is LED, offering energy-efficient light that makes the office environment more engaging and uses 25% less electricity than code mandate for energy consumption per square foot.

To promote collaboration and interaction in the office, the open workspace is arranged in seven “neighborhoods.” The lighting design provides a clear sense of circulation and aids in differentiating “neighborhood” workspaces and collaboration space. LED color-changing fixtures within ceiling coves define neighborhoods, and the light color coordinates with the nature-inspired graphics for each neighborhood.
