Association of Outdoor Lighting Professionals Project Awards

Every year, the Association of Outdoor Lighting Professionals (AOLP), honors our industry with awards for lighting and design. This year, Texas Outdoor Lighting was honored to receive four awards from the AOLP for an array of projects completed last year. It’s a true honor and a bit humbling to us at TOL, and we believe highlights our mission and goal to continuously provide unique outdoor lighting designs to our customers in Texas and beyond. Read on for how we brought these unique projects to life using our outdoor lighting design, expertise, and continual education.

Thanks to the AOLP members for this recognition!

2019 Award of Merit for Feature-Focused Lighting Project

Project: StickWorks-Pease Park, Austin

Designer: Joel Mayor

Details: This is an incredible art installation on the banks of Shoal Creek in the Pease Park area. The project highlights our expertise in creating unique environments through color temperature contrast. The warm (2200 Kelvin) color temperature on the inside of the huts creates the illusion of a glowing fireplace inside. The cooler (5700 Kelvin) color temperature lights casting down from the peaks of the large trees surrounding the Installation simulate bright moonlight and serve to provide a stark contrast and depth of vision when viewing this installation from a distance. 

2019 Award of Merit for Commercial Lighting Project 

Project: Horseshoe Bay Resort

Designer: Joel Mayor

Details: The Yacht Club at Horseshoe Bay Resort is on the most beautiful and exclusive lake front properties in Texas. This expansive property was lit using a large variety of methods, fixtures and techniques. Well over 200 individual lights and over 5 football field lengths of commercial grade LED tape lighting were used. We paid special attention to installation methods with the high traffic of the area in mind. This installation will be looking great for years to come. 

2019 Award of Merit for Residential Large Lighting Project

Project: Barker Estate

Designer: Joel Mayor

Details: This enormous property included the expansive main home as well as a full-sized indoor basketball/volleyball facility for their children. This project provided several unique installation challenges requiring specialized methods to achieve the clients desired effect. 

2019 Award of Merit for Outdoor Living Lighting Project

Project: Man Cave

Designer: Joel Mayor

Details: The white limestone bluffs surrounding Lake Travis provided this client with the perfect space for entertaining. A natural fissure in the bluff left this family with a unique cave-like location where they constructed a waterfall, natural wading pool and seating area. The low color temperature used along the face of the bluffs creates an incredibly warm and inviting space for the family to enjoy on a quiet Hill Country evening
