WASHINGTON PARK RENOVATION
KLH Engineers designed the mechanical, electrical, plumbing and lighting systems for the renovation and expansion of Cincinnati’s Washington Park, including streetscape and parking garage. Among many things, the renovation created a central gathering space directly across from Music Hall to be known as Music Hall Plaza. Pedestrian post-top lighting assemblies are located on the north and south edge of the Music Hall Plaza, where a temporary stage area can be positioned. These lights are also used to light the paths interior to the park. This Music Hall Plaza now leads into the new civic lawn space and then into the park’s historic bandstand area.
The existing lighting in the historic bandstand was replaced, and a light cable system suspended above the bandstand providing unique ambiance to this feature area. The bandstand’s permanent stage is illuminated by downlight cylinders. Other enhancements included audio/visual upgrades and the addition of a dramatic lighting encompassing the area surrounding the bandstand. The open-air stage provides shelter and audiovisual support for arts groups and other performers.
KLH Engineers also provided architectural lighting design for the large park fountain. The water feature is a major icon of the park, providing opportunities for interaction with water.
