Ceiling Flood fully integrates with the architectural lighting, so that travelers notice evenly spaced boxes of blue neon light on the left, matched by evenly spaced boxes of red neon on the right as they move through the space. A line of neutral fluorescent light fixtures punctuates the point of the “V,” above which a strategically placed line of neon tubing provides a subtle “yellow glow" down the length of the ceiling. To break up the 1000-foot-long space, colors switch half way down the hall, signaling the end of the corridor.

Best Viewing: Post security; accessible to ticketed passengers for Boarding Area G only.
