Lighting analysis: Work

Reception area in an office

Qualitative lighting design

The reception area of the Skidmore, Owings & Merrill architectural practice in London features a clear, generous spatial impression. The lighting concept emphasises this character with a uniform distribution of brightness on the walls. Three different lighting methods are used for the three zones of reception desk, waiting area and corridor. Using recessed luminaires creates subtle architectural details, with a focus not on the luminaires but on the impact of light in the architecture.
