Tractor Foods – New Location at the Telus Gardens on Robson Street in Vancouver, BC
Tractor Foods Custom lighting design for their Telus Gardens Restaurant – Dave Wong of WHG Design and Karice Enterprises collaborate a second time to provide custom lighting for Tractor Foods at their newest location on Robson Street.
WHG Design and Karice Enterprises – Work Together for a Design Collaboration to provide a new and Innovative Lighting Design for the newest Tractor Foods location on Robson Street.
In the spring of 2016 Dave Wong of WHG Design came to Karice with the lighting concept for the Telus Gardens location.
In May 2016, we were presented with initial design concepts for the new location. The new lighting installation was set over the dining area of the restaurant. The design consists of intersecting linear lights. A design theme that was carried through out the rest of the restaurant. Similar subtle details were replicated in the millwork, unifying the design. The installation was crafted by Karice using our in-house, proprietary aluminum lighting extrusion. Welding the channels together, the lighting installation is 22-feet x 10-feet in size. Using extra bright LEDs, we were able to provide lighting that would illuminate the entire restaurant.
When it came to suspending the light in the restaurant, Dave wanted a minimalist approach. Originally, we had imagined 10 – 11 rigid drop tubes to suspend the light. Dave wanted only six! This would mean that the light would cantilever and project out from the drop tubes. The difficult part of this installation was to figure out, where the six drop tubes would work. The balance point on the structure had to be figured out, and finalize the locations. Using large round tubing and large, thick mounting flanges, we were able to meet the strict requirements of Vancouver’s seismic zone codes.
In addition to the eye catching lighting display in the dining area, Karice also crafted eleven custom linear lights for the kitchen service line. The lights were suspended in between a wood ceiling grid. A beautiful design by WHG Design.
