Wide and focussed

Spaces can be interpreted as wide or focussed depending on the lighting concept as well as the application of narrow or wide-beam luminaires. This approach is primarily directed at forming the spatial layout, but can also contribute to orientation and improved perception. In-ground wallwashers illuminate the facade and the park wall. Bollard luminaires with a wide light distribution provide the forecourt's ambient lighting. The focussed illumination is based on accent lighting for pathways and entrances with narrow-beam bollard luminaires, projectors and downlights.

Wide and focussed

Wide: scene 1

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.

Wide and focussed

Focus: scene 1

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.

Focus: scene 2

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.
