What Are New Generation Parans?
Sunlight is important. We feel better, learn better, perform faster and are more productive – we do better.
Many people spend a large part of the day indoors and do not experience healthy natural light.
Envisage Companies is in the process of a major development project on a building located on the forever famous Lombard Street in San Francisco, Ca.
This massive building is now in the process of being converted from an old, run down 3 apartment unit into an expanded, modern, 3-unit Tenant-in-Common. (TIC)
What’s the hype all about.
Envisage Companies added square footage by excavating underneath this massive building and adding a sub-terraranan floor.
But darkness can be an issue for the people on the lower floors- especially subterranean! So, Envisage found some rather innovative new lighting that harnesses the sun and sends it through building (up to 30 floors) that brings real sunlight to the rooms.
Called New Generation Parans, these fiber optic lights have receivers on the roofs that harness the sunlight and then fiber optic cables carry the sunlight in and through the property throughout the depth while maintaining light quality and brightness.
Through innovative technology and design, Parans follow the sun just like a sunflower does turning and catching the strongest rays.
Fiber optic cables carry the sunlight in and through the property and spread light in all rooms. Everyone should have the right to sunlight – and now everyone can! Everyone throughout the unit will experience healthy natural light, including the deepest unit of the project.
The sunlight can be spread in several ways to create the lighting experience you want.
Envisage Companies gets an “A” in my book for using these innovative lights in their Lombard Street Project!
