Architectural Lighting Design

LC SmartGlass @ Rothschild Investment Bank Headquarters – New Court, London CityComprehensive lighting design requires consideration of the amount of functional light provided, the energy consumed, as well as the aesthetic impact supplied by the lighting system.

It is important that the sciences of light production and luminaire photometrics are balanced with the artistic application of light as a medium in our built environment.

Architectural lighting design focuses on three fundamental aspects of the illumination of buildings or spaces. The first is the aesthetic appeal of a building, an aspect particularly important in the illumination of retailenvironments. Secondly, the ergonomicaspect: the measure of how much of a function the lighting plays. Thirdly is the energy efficiencyissue to assure that light is not wasted by over-illumination, either by illuminating vacant spaces unnecessarily or by providing more light than needed for the aesthetics or the task.

LC SmartGlass when switched “On” allows 76% light transmission & when switched “Off” allows 67%.
