Hall of Ancient Egypt

Houston Museum of Natural Science

Christensen Lighting, together with a team charged with renewing a previously uninviting hall, successfully brought hundreds of ancient artifacts out of the dark and into the glory of this 12,500-square foot permanent exhibition with over 125 display cases. The resulting renovated space is a celebration of colors, forms, and textures, while meeting the 5 to 30 foot-candle curatorial requirements. The lighting team performed dozens of photometric and design studies to complete this project.
