Firestone Walker Brewing Company is a craft brewery based in Paso Robles, California. The brewery has achieved significant success, gaining widespread recognition with a number of international awards for its beers. In order to meet the increase in demand for its products the brewery added a new 10,000 sq. ft. brew house at its Paso Robles headquarters. The buildings boasts beautiful structure comprising of galvanized metal and exposed bolts combined with tiling and concrete floors.
Therefore, to accentuate the look of the building proper lighting becomes imperative. The lighting had to be functional as well as fitting aesthetically complementing the design of the building. In collaboration with Prudential Lighting Products, the Harris architecture team identified Luminis products as the perfect solution. Luminis’ Torx and Aramis products were chosen. Twelve Torx TR2450 pendants were selected to illuminate the brew deck.
The Torx TR2450 products are decorative and functional ceiling pendants with a frosted acrylic refractor and an LED light source. Delivering more than 12,000 lumens per product, the pendants are ideal for areas where efficiency, reliability and aesthetics are important. To carry the aesthetic throughout the facility, two more Torx TR2450 pendants have been included in the visitor center.
Four Aramis AR148 pendants were used for additional illumination, while thirteen wall-mounted Aramis AR148 luminaires are positioned around the perimeter of the room. Most of the Aramis AR148 wall mounted sconces are in pairs – one as an uplight, and one as a downlight in each pair – providing a striking accent. The 6” cylindrical luminaires have an LED light source and deliver 2,050 lumens.
“Functionality and performance were key requirements in the lighting product selection,” said Harris. “The Torx and Aramis products from Luminis not only delivered on those requirements but also perfectly fit the industrial aesthetic in the rest of the building.” Luminis’ Syrios SY602 products complete with LED light source and unique integral tilting mechanism for precise directional aiming were chosen for outside the building. The lights beautifully illuminate the Firestone Walker signage which really catches the eye.
