The wide spatial impression is built up by illuminating the forecourt, trees and facade and by projecting light at the wall in the background. The uniform brightness distribution on both the horizontal and vertical surfaces strengthens this atmosphere. In addition, the lighting of the trees emphasises the dimension of height as an aspect of distance.
The vertical washlighting makes an important contribution to revealing the dimensions of the spatial borders and using them to create distance. The uniform brightness distribution helps ensure that the surfaces are perceived as an entity.
Narrow beams resulting in a distinct brightness contrast with the surroundings add accents and attract the observer's attention to important points. In this instance, the lighting gives the pathway more importance than the entire area. The same lighting principles are also applied to the building and the wall, redirecting the viewer?s attention to the opening in the wall and the entrance to the building.
The use of focussed lighting alone creates points of high concentration. This is accompanied by a loss of width, which can impair orientation if points appear in isolation from one another and the connections between them are unclear.
