The aim of the project was to create a space that would excite, educate, and inspire all who visit it. To achieve this, Philips was asked to create an attractive atmosphere with light. The local council sought a solution that would be 100% LED, apart from the perimeter lighting.
Philips was able to provide a complete solution. To turn the dome into an eyecatching icon, the outer wall was lined with eW Graze Powercore lights. These linear fixtures make the whole building glow, with vibrant colours that can be easily adjusted by operators. LED landscape lighting was installed around the square, painting fountains, steps and architecture with stunning lighting effects.
Urbanscene street lights were also added to create breath-taking lighting effects that attract passers-by to the area. The end result of all these effects is an amazing visual spectacle, with stunning light scenarios that interact with each other. Energy efficient lighting has helped to revitalize the area into a place of pride for the city.
To be as environmentally friendly as possible, the new lighting system is compatible with the solar panels and wind turbines that provide power in the square.
