Created for the L'Auberge du Lac resort in Lake Charles, Louisiana, this dramatic large scale chandelier is designed and engineered to be weatherproof, lightweight and maintenance free. Key features include aluminum construction, LED lamping, and an AAMA-2604 rated finish that provides the highest standard for UV and corrosion resistance -- an important requirement in the hot, humid and salty air of the Gulf Coast climate.

Located on over 2,000 sweeping acres between North Lake Tahoe and Truckee, California, Martis Camp is a private gated community that embraces the true essence of High Sierra living. Swaback Partners collaborated with Hammerton in designing a signature collection of unique outdoor fixtures that complemented the award-winning architecture and breathtaking natural surroundings.

Completed in late 2015, High Star Ranch is a mixed-use destination resort in the rural foothills of Utah's majestic Uinta mountains. Hammerton designed and built both the interior and exterior lighting packages for High Star's 10,000 ft DeJoria Conference Center. Woven mesh featured throughout the exterior lighting package gives a utilitarian nod to the surrounding farming community, while contemporary fixture forms allow the scenic landscape to take center stage.
