The Lighting Practice Principal Jonathan Hoyle has been featured in Metro Philadelphia to discuss TLP's work on Boathouse Row's lighting system. In this article, Jon discusses the need for updating the existing system, exciting capabilities of the new system, and the importance of Boathouse Row as a Philadelphia landmark.

“Fairmount Park Conservancy and Philadelphia's Parks & Recreation will be dimming the lights on Boathouse Row on Monday, March 20, for eight months, while the Philly icon undergoes major renovations to its lighting system.

Finding someone incredible for its glow-up was a necessity.

Enter The Lighting Practice, the Philly-based light design professionals, who, at the cost of $2.1 million—funded through the support of the Joanna McNeil Trust and the City of Philadelphia—will replace and re-do the Schuylkill River showpiece with 6,400 individual LED lights and 16 million color combinations.

'The Lighting Practice has been able to be responsive on this special and complex project, undertaking the layout and attachments customized to each of the 15 unique boathouses, while keeping in mind the maintenance needs of the site as a whole,' said Tara Rasheed, Fairmount Park Conservancy's Director of Capital Projects. 'The project needs to be able to operate as one system, while being installed on 15 unique buildings.'

Jonathan T. Hoyle of The Lighting Practice recently sat down with Metro to discuss just what it means to install a new lighting system for an icon such as Boathouse Row.”
