Silver Oak Cellars has been making Cabernet Sauvignon for over 35 years in Napa Valley. After a 2006 fire, the complex was rebuilt with the goal of freshening up the look while maintaining a connection to the winery's rich heritage. The new 68,000 SF facility includes hospitality, administration, production and utility buildings. Lighting was designed to enhance the timeless feel of the architecture while capturing the industrial nature of a working winery.

This landmark Julia Morgan-designed building in downtown Honolulu, the first concrete building in the Pacific, has been brought up-to-date with new systems. Our firm had to work with un-modifiable architectural elements and local climate conditions, while remaining respectful of the historic decor. New, custom decorative fixtures were designed to harmonize with the old. A new conference center that allows for events big and small was added and required flexibility on the part of the lighting design.
