Project Description

Yale University Lanman Wright Hall, Widely referred to as LDub, houses Pierson and Berkeley freshmen. LDub is notable for having some of the smallest rooms at Yale, with most bedrooms being doubles with bunk beds and common rooms being relatively small. Despite these, LDub affords residents a notably communal atmosphere. Students spend less time in their respective rooms. The courtyard is also well used. LDub entryways are all linked by LDub Courtyard, which is the most popular semi-enclosed place on Old Campus. It is elevated, with benches and trees, and is conveniently located beside Old Campus’s Elm Street entrance, and nearby its High Street one. Because of this, it is often used as a social hub or meet-up point for freshmen.

Grand Light restored seven original exterior lanterns. Each lantern was media blasted to remove all of the existing finish and a beautiful satin black finish was applied in addition to replacement frosted seedy glass panels. All mechanical defects and missing parts were repaired and replicated to match the existing components. All fixtures were rewired with two circuits, one of which is an emergency circuit, in accordance to UL standards. These historic lanterns were retrofitted with modern fluorescent lighting technology.
