Ocean House • Watch Hill, RI
Centerbrook Architects worked with Scofield Historic Lighting to create a number of signature light fixtures for the replicated Ocean House hotel in Watch Hill, RI. The fixtures included the landmark pendant lantern hung above the front door and secured by catenary chain tethers, two pedestal lanterns atop stone piers, and bracketed wall sconces around the curved base of the iconic “Rotunda Porch”. The replication of a 19th century Victorian hotel required careful attention to every concern in both fabrication and installation. The Ocean House has received four design awards from Contract Magazine, AIA Rhode Island, and Builder Magazine and the Association of General Contractors of Massachusetts.
“We collaborated with Scofield to customize timeless, historic designs that could withstand the harsh seaside environment. Many of the fixtures also incorporated a cut-out Ocean House logo backed by amber art glass, which helped to distinguish the hotel as unique. Scofield was attentive to every detail, provided superb design advice, and adjusted their installation procedures whenever customization required it.” - Jefferson B. Riley, FAIA, Centerbrook Architects
New York Botanical Garden
The New York Botanical Garden (1840) restoration utilizes ADA compliant wall sconces in both the dining and reception areas of the building, creating both authentic, period look and function for a busy hospitality venue.
Scofield's English Box sconce was the lighting we chose for the reception room. That particular design is in keeping with the 1700's vernacular and simple palette. Because of ADA requirements we needed to modify the design and Scofield worked right along with us to modify the design to meet our needs while still maintaining the same feeling of rich materials and handmade quality. - Lori Weatherly, Designer, Cooper Robertson and Partners

8 large custom pendants designed for renovation of Fellowship Hall. Working with the architectural beauty of the structure and continuing the use of beautiful materials that were still intact from the original building helped to create seamless beauty.
You figure custom lighting is going to be cost-prohibitive, and that might be true if you are doing only one. But if you are doing eight, like we did, there is an economy of scale, says Franzen. - Jack Franzen, JP Franzen Associates Architects
