He Tohu Wins the IES Lighting Society Lighting Design Award of Excellence

Last week Studio Pacific’s He Tohu Document Room won the Lighting Design Award of Excellence at the IES Lighting Society awards ceremony.

There were 26 finalists on the night drawn from over 200 entries, with only 13 of the entries in the running for an Excellence or Commendation. He Tohu won the Excellence award in the Lighting Design category: this was the first Excellence award made since 2015.  

The judges described the He Tohu Document room’s design as “A very clever and sympathetic design. The designer has achieved a perfect balance between technical concerns, heritage preservation and comfortable visual experience. Simply brilliant!”

Studio Pacific would also like to congratulate the wider design team, especially eCubed  and Story Inc., as well as the client team from the Department of Internal Affairs, all of whom were integral to creating a successful lighting solution for He Tohu. 

And congratulations to all other finalists on the night!
