Henderson-Hopkins, Baltimore's first new public school built in 30 years, is surrounded by one of the city's most dangerous neighborhoods where crime and poverty rates are double the city average. The primary goal of the lighting design was to develop an integrated lighting design to meet address energy, vandalism and public safety concerns without compromising the architectural design aesthetic. Flux Studio scope included daylighting design as well as interior lighting, exterior and site lighting for all project areas. Daylight performance exceeds LEED for schools requirement with 97% daylit area at classrooms, 96% daylit area for other regularly occupied spaces. Lighting Power Density is 28% more energy efficient than ASHRAE 90.1-2007 baseline model. Built as part of broader efforts to revitalize greater Middle East Baltimore, lighting design at Henderson Hopkins School creates an inspiring environment to learn, grow and engage community without compromising security, safety and energy criteria.
