Winner in Exterior Architectural Illumination
The lighting design follows Chimelong Group’s concept of "coexistence with nature. Given the unique wild animal resources of Chimelong Tourist Resort, it echoes the themes of animals and ecology, and also indicates the primitiveness, wildness and roughness of the ancient Lingnan civilization.
The headquarters building consists of a tower and a podium. The lighting design fully takes into account the characteristics of the building, in order to reproduce its daytime look in the evening.
The lighting design is also divided into two parts: the overall block and detailed units, which complements one another. Based on this logic, it highlights characteristics and concept. In this way, it creates a clear distinction between the primary and the secondary, and also exposes the visual highlights of the design.
Moreover, the design also emphasizes on innovation and breakthrough. Adhering to Chimelong Group’s management philosophy of a harmonious coexistence with nature, the project team skillfully used colors to interpret the integration of nature with technology, and endowed the building with new stories by virtue of the architectural structure.
