Entry DescriptionCapitaSpring is a mixed-use commercial building, one of the tallest buildings in Singapore at 280 meters. The greenery embedded in the building is emphasized, and the lighting fixtures and light colors are carefully selected to bring the greenery into play. On the building façade, the featured green pockets are highlighted by mixing 4000K white with pastel green colored lighting, making it stand out at night. The social space is designed to seamlessly connect with the surrounding landscape by projecting patterns of light and shadow from the trees, giving the office building a relaxing atmosphere at night.
Sustainability ApproachCapitaSpring has earned one of the highest green building ratings in Singapore, and the lighting reduces overall lighting power consumption while achieving the nighttime appearance expected by the architect and client. In addition to reducing the number of luminaires and their power consumption, the contrasting lighting design clearly defined areas and elements should be illuminated and should not to be illuminated, creating a visual hierarchy at night.
