The Metropolitan Project

A warm and contemporary environment designed by Washington DC architecture firm R2L:Architects utilizes minimalist, integrated lighting by Inter-lux. The resulting spaces welcome residents and their guests to The Metropolitan, a residential urban high-rise.

Strategically located in the heart of downtown Rockville, Maryland since opening in 2018, The Metropolitan features 273 upscale apartments. R2L:Architects selected innovative Inter-lux luminaires from ALM, Filix, Linea Light and Whitegoods to enhance many of the common interior areas, including the lobby, courtyard, bike garage and mail room, as well as the exterior façade, courtyard and garage.

Designed to blend into the architecture, Inter-lux/Whitegoods lighting ensures that attention remains on the space and not on the lights themselves. A few of the Whitegoods products that demonstrate this philosophy at The Metropolitan include SM20LDL, 20 Linear Surface LED and the B100SDL 100 Square Downlight.

Loro, Guardian and Paseo lighting products from Inter-lux/Linea Light were chosen for their functionality and design attributes in exterior spaces. Filix ingrade linears both illuminate and act as way-finding in outdoor transient areas. These high-performance luminaires add light and style to this urban sanctuary.
