Dressing Up in Houston
Curves of Plexineon Add the Right Touch to a New Skyscraper
A new 40-story residential tower in Houston’s urban core is quickly becoming a local icon. Known by its address — 2929 Weslayan — the LEED Gold-certified structure includes 254 luxury apartment homes and 12,500 square feet of retail space on the ground floor. Designed by Dallas-based RTKL Associates, it incorporates exquisite finishes and stunning architecture while providing panoramic views from spacious balconies.
Indeed, those balconies are among the building’s standout features, thanks to creative use of iLight Plexineon White 2X 4500 LED fixtures.
The result is a streamlined, modern building with forward-thinking features, including a landscaped courtyard and breezeway with a unique design element that incorporates iLight Plexineon LED fixtures.

The pendant is a glowing sphere built up of small diamond-shaped cells. Each cell is carefully designed to capture light and to shield the light source from the viewing angles above 45 degrees. Below 45 degrees, the fields are open to direct light downwards. A small amount of light is also sent upwards to illuminate the ceiling.
