Guiding through office buildings with light

How does light facilitate orientation?

Creating hierarchies

Good orientation improves the understanding of a building and therefore the levels of user acceptance. In particular, differentiated light helps to create perception hierarchies. Linear lighting guides through open plan areas for example. Wallwashing on the other hand serves to visualise room borders. Vertical lighting also improves the ambience by giving rooms a bright and generous spatial appearance. Well-lit circulation area not only support access, but also promote spontaneous, informal conversations between colleagues.
