Transformer Installation Tips with Moonlighting

During a recent system re-vamp, part of the project involved the re-mounting of the existing transformers. When the system was initially installed  the transformers were mounted separately from each other and over time the organization of the wire had become tangled and unorganized. It is important when mounting the transformer(s) that they are located in a spot that is convenient to the available receptacle. Another important element is that all wiring coming in and out of the transformer are properly labeled, identifiable, organized and securely harnessed. Organized wiring is always makes it easier for any future maintenance or diagnosing. Read More

Putting our “Light Laboratory” to Use!

Earlier this morning, the Moonlighting team took a few minutes to experiment with some really cool new LED bulbs and fixtures in our new “light laboratory.” With LED technology advancing at such a rapid pace, we are able to take the time and test the products to determine how we might incorporate them into our designs. We are beginning to utilize LED technology daily, and if you are thinking “green” than you should certainly consider LED.

Frank Lloyd Wright, Landscape Lighting Innovator?

On a recent trip to Arizona to attend the annual AOLP conference, Moonlighting principles Mike Rollins and Doug Wickenhoefer visited the world famous Frank Lloyd Wright, Taliesin West home. Frank Lloyd Wright is one of the most prolific architects in American history. He was revolutionary in his designs as he went against the norm of what we consider “everyday” architecture. Wright embraced the organic aspect and encouraged site specific construction. Wright was a Wisconsin native where his first project Taliesin I was constructed. He was brought to Arizona by a former student that asked him to take part in the design and construction of the Arizona Biltmore Hotel. There was much opposition but his design would be accepted. The Arizona Biltmore Hotel is now the only hotel in the world with a Frank Lloyd Wright-influenced design. Read More

Illuminating a Beautiful Kiawah Island Landscape

Recently Moonlighting installed a landscape lighting system for one of our newest clients, at their home on Kiawah Island. We were able to work closely with the clients, as they expressed several elements of their landscape that were very important to them. They left it up to Moonlighting to provide them with a design that they would be able to enjoy for many years to come!  The landscape consisted of some beautiful existing live oaks, as well as some planted palms and crape myrtles. The additional landscaping work was done by Green Jeans Landscapes, of Johns Island. Green Jeans did an amazing job of the placement and arrangement of the landscape, which allowed Moonlighting a great opportunity for lighting. Because the landscape design was so elegantly executed, we were able to provide our clients with a very subtle, yet balanced landscape lighting design. Read More
