Gateway Community College – New Haven Campus

Learning comes to light — revitalizing this new campus known as the “gateway to the city” towards an efficient and sustainable future.

HLB Lighting Design teamed up with Perkins + Will to design an intriguing energetic environment where a 11,000 student community can learn and grow in their pursuit for success. HLB’s design solution is functional, pragmatic, energy conserving, easy to maintain all the while meeting the aesthetics of the building. HLB also designed a media wall in the atrium that responds to the time of day to activate and energize the space. The endeavor to use the interior lighting as part of the exterior expression was accomplished, creating an inviting impression. The lively and spirited college includes common areas, lobbies, corridors elevator lobbies, main entrance canopy, exterior facade and adjacent site lighting, offices, bookstore, cafeteria, library, facility events area, and classrooms.
