Ballpark Village Expansion

Situated directly across the street from Busch Stadium—home to baseball’s storied St. Louis Cardinals—sits Ballpark Village, an entertainment development which recently expanded to include the Live! by Loews hotel and neighboring PwC Pennant Building. A collection of large pennants on the Pennant Building’s exterior pays homage to the Cardinals’s 11 World Series titles. To maximize their impact, lighting designer Lisa Reed/Envision Lighting Design illuminated each of these 5-story banners using only a single light source per side. She chose the RISE F080 Quad for the task, because of its unique ability to employ different aim and optics across each of the fixture’s 4 heads.

Above the hotel entrance, a beautiful, 6-story bas relief sculpture presented a similar challenge: how to light the entire piece from a single vantage point. In this case, two TROV linear fixtures were mounted together below the sculpture—one with a tight distribution for the top and another with a wider distribution for the bottom half—to reveal the dimensionality in the work that would surely have be lost under direct lighting. Inside the hotel, Slim Cove Dim luminaires were used throughout public spaces and guestrooms to create a sense of upscale ambiance. The Whiskey Room bar is a highlight among the hotel’s public spaces, featuring a showstopping room of whiskey bottles backlit by the warm white graze of TROV L50 9×9 fixtures. In total, the Ballpark Village expansion is a brilliant tribute to the team it neighbors. And the lighting that helps makes it so? Well, we’d call it an unqualified, er, grand slam.
