Lighting facades and trees

Light impact and luminaire arrangements

Defining room borders with light

At night, light renders facades and buildings visible. In contrast to interiors, illuminated vertical planes outdoors do not communicate a feeling of depth but limit the space. Wallwashing therefore provides orientation and creates visual references – also from the inside to the outside. For planar illumination, recessed floor luminaires or projectors with wallwash or flood lenses are suitable.
Added value of facade lighting:
- good visibility of all room elements
- limits room depth
- natural appearance of facades and buildings
