Structuring a room with light

How can light make public buildings more easily accessible?

Creating orientation with light

Public buildings should be equally accessible to all members of a society. Concise lighting concepts complying with perceptional needs make such buildings more easily accessible and user-friendly. Part of this is to define and structure large rooms via vertically and horizontally zoned lighting. Contrasts in brightness create hierarchies of importance in the room in this way that support quick, dependable orientation – for new visitors as well as for regular users or employees. The example of an entrance hall demonstrates how light emphasises the representative dimensions and simultaneously communicates a sense of openness and clearness.
