Byerly’s is an upscale supermarket chain with locations in the Twin Cities and surrounding areas. They are owned by Lund Food Holdings, Inc.
When the company decided to open a new store on France Avenue in Edina, Minn., CEO Tres Lund directed the architecture team to incorporate sustainability into the design, including daylighting. While he was not a fan of traditional skylights, he was intrigued by other daylighting technologies like Solatube Daylighting Systems.
The project team knew their client desired more natural light but wanted it to be diffused across large areas of the store. Byerly’s also wanted it to integrate smoothly with the electric lighting. While the client was familiar with the Solatube Ø 53 cm product line, they were most excited to hear there was a larger diameter option available with the new high-output Solatube Ø 74 cm
The store really does look great and your product is working well, I like the look and functionality in the retail environment.
