BMW Plant Leipzig, Central Area

The bare chassis silently meander right through the offices at the BMW works in Leipzig: Zaha Hadid designed this spectacular link building between the shop floors which reflects the dynamics of the marque in both architecture and lighting.

The thoroughfares are very generously proportioned since the entire workforce has to use them at the start and finish of the shifts. Light is also used here to add structure to the bare concrete surfaces: double-focus downlights for metal halide lamps illuminate these thoroughfares with precisely scalloped beams providing high visual comfort. This results in contrasting zones – zones in which the intensive, coloured light of blue metal halide lamps is once again used, only this time fitted in lens wallwashers in order to tone the wall zones with an absolutely even colour.
