In order to
highlight the main façade of the building, a dedicated lighting scheme has been
developed by the international lighting design studio licht|raum|stadt Planung,
based in Germany with a strong presence in the Middle East region. The
appointed lighting designers wanted to enhance the window panels, decorated in
the typical Najd architectural style, as well as the front square columns with a soft wall grazing effect in a
fascinating warm white shade. This smooth illumination has been obtained
through an array of Parade linear bars, either for surface or in-ground
installation, delivered in different lengths and configurations. More Parade
units have also been used to emotionally emphasize the upper balconies of the
front façade, standing out for their traditional style and decorative allure.
Units of Sathurno in the same shade of white have been installed in the upper
hallway, visible from the front façade of the building, to create a deep visual
perspective through an intensive illumination. More Parade recessed units have
been embedded in the inner corridors of the structure to deliver a uniform
light distribution to this specific area.
In spite of the
diverse configuration of the installed fixtures, the final result is a well-balanced
symphony of white lights creating an emotional visual layout.
