The overall design implements a low-site impact methodology where the design of the buildings fits around the contours of the existing 32-acre site and integrates into the forested greenbelt area to the north of the site. The best demonstration of the contouring to the existing site is witnessed by the central circulation areas between Levels 00 and 01 through a “green” space complete with open air breezeways and rainwater collection swales. This project also embraces renewable resources as it has not only a solar PV system for electrical offset but also has a solar hot water system, condensate reclaim system, rainwater harvesting and daylight harvesting to utility usage.Photo courtesy of Collin College: Nick Young Photographer

Targetti's JEDI RECESSED linear ingrate luminaires, provide the ideal solution to illuminate the underside of the large exterior cantilever. The linear projectors were strategically spaced in a linear row following the outline of the cantilever. This spacing and effect enables the fixtures to project light onto the surface above creating an ethereal effect of light within the space.
JEDI's is powerful output and optics illuminate large architectural surfaces such as this alcove of the main building. This powerful linear fixture is available in three different lengths, performances, and numerous optical effects and available in both projector and recessed versions.JEDI is an essentially indestructible, high performance linear outdoor fixture that has the ability to blend in easily within the architecture. It has proven itself to be an indispensable tool for lighting large surfaces. JEDI RECESSED
