The high-level design concept for our new office space was the idea of home.
Skim downlights with extra wide flood light distribution illuminate the lounge area on floor 1 among other areas.
The tea bar in the break area on floor 2 is illuminated by Skim downlights. Skim with extra wide flood light distribution were installed above the small tables. Skim with oval flood distribution are used above the long table.
In detail: an Optec spotlight is mounted on the stainless-steel profiles that function as cable trays and track structure beneath the wooden ceilings of the building. The use of luminaires for track supports the concept of an open-space office with versatile uses, as their positioning, alignment and light distribution can be simply and flexibly adapted to the various set-ups.
Skim downlights with extra wide flood light distribution also illuminate the coffee bar in the lounge area of floor 1.
Ideal light for large conference rooms: the uniform general lighting – here with Skim downlights and extra wide flood (97°) light distribution – is supplemented by vertical illumination via Compact wallwashers.
The openly designed collaboration area on floor 1 is also illuminated by Skim with an extra wide flood Spherolit lens.
The ground floor comprises the entrance area to the Aurecon offices with a reception and 'Maker Space'. Here the company presents its creative and technological possibilities in the digital sector, for example showcasing 3-D printers and augmented reality applications. The lighting here takes a step back in favour of daylight entering through the glass facade. Optec spotlights and Skim downlights are used where qualitative light is needed; on work surfaces and vertical planes such as the greened wall. Optec with wide flood light distribution visually places the reception counter in the foreground. Optec wallwashers illuminate the rear wall. Optec spotlights with spot (17°) light distribution accentuate the planting.
ERCO Focalflood (grazer optic) illuminate the vertical planting on the "green wall".
Optec spotlights with round luminaire heads, with a freely rotatable Spherolit lens and oval flood distribution, were installed both in the main corridor and above the tables for informal meetings. Optec spotlights with spot light distribution accentuate the planting used to subdivide the open space.
Compact wallwashers provide uniform illumination of the vertical surfaces along the circulation zones and corridors, thus providing good orientation in the space. The warm white 3,000K light colour emphasises the homely feel of the wood construction material. ERCO high-efficiency lighting technology enables above-average luminaire spacing, and thus a minimum number of luminaires.
