Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts

Orlando, Florida
United States

The Dr. Phillips Center is one of HLB’s largest LED installations to date. Conventional light sources included linear fluorescents to backlight the “ghost” glass façade and compact fluorescents placed in custom designed pendants at the lobby and banquet hall.

The Walt Disney Theater features mostly concealed linear LED luminaires, highlighting the stretched fabric ceiling, blue acoustic walls, metal work of the proscenium, the stairs, and the stepped seating. The community theater is fancier than a typical black-box, featuring backlit glass and metal balcony fronts, LED handrails and LED ambient downlights. The lobby features a color-changing wave wall that can receive projections from specialty theatrical fixtures. The color is pre-programmed to represent the rising and setting sun — changing from cool blues to warm oranges. The façade features a flood lit roof and backlit glass with a glow that can be seen for blocks. Custom pendant fixtures over the street and in the lobby draw patrons into the lively space where the arts stir excitement.
