Backlit Glass Ceiling + Wall Features

Franklin Square | Washington, D.C.

An exquisite lobby exposing its simple and subtle beauty to the outside viewer through illuminated backlit glass ceilings that continue into walls behind the reception and into individual cafes. GPI was able to bring Hickok Cole’s vision of updating this 1980s postmodern lobby into a contemporary design that draws the eye through the space. For the backlit glass ceiling and wall features at Franklin Square, not only was the scale just massive, but involved large, heavy panels, complex lighting environments, and fine details – all of which needed to be acutely engineered and tested to ensure the solutions were not only technically correct, but aesthetically appropriate. GPI handled this project as a turnkey package including engineering, supply of all surface/structure/lighting materials, and installation services.
