The Parks at 5M

San Francisco, California
United States

As the centerpiece of the 5M development in San Francisco’s SoMa neighborhood, the project unites the surrounding community with open green spaces, play areas, ample seating, a dog run, and a performance stage. Lighting was strategically integrated to enhance safety and security for users by activating the parks during the evening, resulting in a safe and comfortable environment for users.

Artfully illuminated wind baffles radiate a soft glow to enliven and anchor the parks. The structures are brought to life through an HLB-specified lighting control system that enables colorful, dynamic lighting effects through preset scenes. A variety of presets for the baffles include scenes for holidays and local sports teams, while general area lighting can be controlled for special events such as performances and movie nights.
