Project Location Kaohsiung City
Entry DescriptionThe building is situated in the Asia New Bay Area of Kaohsiung, Taiwan, which was the city center in days gone past. Because it is located close to an international port, the commercial area is lit at night by street lamps installed with 6500K LED light bulbs that cause light pollution. Hence, we came up with the idea that the building’s lighting temperature should be able to shift in tandem with the color of the sky at dusk. The ever-changing prismatic bands of light on the roof will add to the newfound hope citizens have for the old downtown, while also bringing a spark of joy to weary travelers.
When viewed from a height, the main body of the structure emanates a sense of comfort thanks to the graduated low color temperature lighting along the side of the building. We have hidden the light sources within the structure, fulfilling our design philosophy of “Visible Light, Invisible Bulb.” A DMX lighting control system is incorporated into the design.
Purposefully dimmed lights around the entrance let the lighting from within the building naturally emerge, striking a balance with the surrounding environment.
