With a major refurbishment of the lighting system at the Vorarlberg State Library, ERCO LED lighting tools convinced thanks to good glare control of the luminaires, highly precise light distribution and low energy consumption. The project benefited from the architectural luminaire producer's many years of experience in the form of professional wallwashing with maximum levels of uniformity.
The Vorarlberg State Library located in the town of Bregenz on Lake Constance is housed in a highly unusual building – a former monastery accommodates the central book collection of the most westerly Austrian federal state. Constructed at the beginning of the 20th century by a Swiss Benedictine convent as a refuge, after the order was forced to leave Switzerland due to internal political reasons at the end of the 19th century, the monastery only served its original purpose for a few decades. After being used temporarily as a school, the state library took up residence at the site from 1986, and corresponding reconstruction of the former monastery was completed in 1993.
