Twinning the high-end Ancora Waterfront Dining and Patio in a new West Vancouver location called for a customized LED solution befitting of the dramatic grid-patterned open acoustical ceiling. BL Lighting delivered a suspended linear LED lighting system that met the needs of the clients and allowed the stunningly attractive interior to shine in just the right light.

The design team implemented the purpose built grid-patterned acoustical ceiling but were presented with yet another challenge – how to illuminate? This is no space for bulky, ugly, light fixtures! BL Lighting added the finishing touch with the additions of the right BL fixFORM Suspended luminaires.
