Architectural Lighting by Thanos Danilof

“The lighting concept is based on creating an urban nightscape with a strong visual identity where the façade’s structural form shimmers over the dark reflective glazing. A continuous band of cool white light picks out the distinctive shape of the building, wraps around it and dissolves into darkness and ambient luminance. In contrast, the interior lift lobby areas, the “spine” of the eight-storey building, are revealed in a gentler and warmer tone.  At ground level warm light delineates the sculptural qualities of the landscape while cool white light accentuates the olive trees. Last but not least, a subtle note is introduced by the delicate shadows cast by the façade plants on each level that move gently as they are caught in the night breeze. “ - Danilof Light + Visual Perception Studio

In this presentation the close-up details were selected to focus on the interaction between the lighting with the design elements of the building, which can also stand alone as photographic architectural abstractions.
