Madison Teen Center Project: This project was a major renovation, converting an old commercial furrier into a contemporary teen center. Our goal was to create an exciting and innovative space for teens yet respect the urban and industrial feel of the building. This was accomplished by incorporating industrial elements and urban art throughout.
Faced with the challenge of turning a dark and foreboding tunnel into an exciting, energetic space within a meaningful design, the following concept was created. This lighting sculpture symbolically represents the wide variety of talents that made the Lussier Teen Center a reality. The contractors, architects, teen center directors, and artists working on the center provided the individual neon shapes. Just as their efforts brought us the teen center so did each of their individual designs, together in “UNITY,” makes the sculpture happen.
