Entry Description

Jiaxing railway station was deadly destroyed in 1937, and was reproduced according to its original construction details.

The entrance, passages and the waiting hall of the new station are all taken underground. The challenge of lighting design is how to make a tranquil and extensive place, in which new meets old, people slowdown and breathe the future.

Three ways of hierarchical lighting were developed under one piece of roof: linear downlights integrated into skylight mullions for the hall general lighting. Customized linear lights recessed into the walls and skylight, along with projected lights by the ground floor wide floodlight onto the ceiling draws the gaze of viewer, constitutes the ambient lighting. The glowing pole lights at the seating area bring the room a warm atmosphere at the human scale. As we have elaborately integrated emergency lighting into the light pole, and no other light fitting is planned in the ceiling of the hall, so here we create a pure futuristic scene. The linear lights around the skylight, softly permeates the hall from above, mimicking natural lights in rain days, while at night, the glow from inside emphasizes the visual axis of the site.
