Yale University Tsai Lacrosse Field House
New Haven, Connecticut
Yale had outgrown its old field house and sought to create a new home for its men’s and women’s lacrosse and soccer teams. HLB was challenged to keep energy savings top of mind for this state-of the-art facility while improving visual performance and comfort for occupants.
Linear indirect pendants are used to prevent glare concerns for athletes lifting weights while on their backs and students being treated in the sports medicine room. Simple yet effective lighting solutions in the locker rooms allow Yale’s illuminated logo to take center stage, creating a “wow” experience for occupants. Energy savings are achieved through the building’s networked lighting control system, with electric lighting turned off in many areas through daylight harvesting, only to be turned on when the space is occupied.
