In close collaboration with OTJ Architects, Hartranft Lighting Design helped achieve an energizing lighting scheme for Booz Allen Hamilton’s new office space.
This idea of the ‘magical moment of connection’ was literally translated into the lighting design with dynamically placed linear lighting throughout the office that intersects and ‘connects’ the open office to the circulation and collaboration spaces.
Even illumination of the open office task areas was a high priority to the client, which proved challenging due to the unique lighting layout.
After carefully studying the layouts, utilizing batwing optics, and adding a perimeter layer of light – appropriate, even, and comfortable lighting levels were achieved without sacrificing the overall design aesthetic.
The client is thrilled with their new offices and happy to present a progressive and visionary image to their clients.

About the IES Illumination Awards
The IES Illumination Awards program recognizes individuals for professionalism, ingenuity, and originality in lighting design based on the individual merit of each entry. Judges are selected from a broad professional spectrum, representing knowledge of lighting and design excellence. The judging system is entirely based on how well the lighting design meets the program criteria. The Illumination Awards program is not a competition.
