Architectural Lighting

The roof, with an appearance of a lotus in water, has 4000k lights to make it look as though basking in the moonlight. Warm 3000k lighting sets off the bamboo veneer, penetrating outward from the interior with a sense of security. The rich transition in lighting from the interior of the flower-like building to its “petals” (eaves) manifests exquisite spatial relationships. Lighting for the “stamens” (interior columns) of the building is especially prominent, lights of varying intensity along the glass walls highlighting the interior‘s gentle curves. The lighting does not directly illuminate the glass or columns, maintaining a light, transparent feeling. Lights on the ground warmly illuminate the protruding eaves, and white light above creates visual contrast and spatial transformation, making it look like two sides of a flower petal. Custom-made ceramic tiles on both sides of the entrance are contoured and glazed, slightly reflecting light directed at the eaves, with the appearance of ripples on water. The light also gently sprinkles down to safely illuminate the ground. The waterside is outlined with a concealed light trough. The intensity of the lighting along the bank is adjusted by a control system, the elegant curves beautifully echoing those of the building while safely delineating the border of the lake. With a “moonlit” roof, warm light penetrating outward, and the reflection on the water, the building indeed seems to float sublimely like a lotus in a pond. As theillumination of the roof, walls, interior, and surrounding landscape can be adjusted, different expressions ranging from a flower in full bloom to quiet reservation may be produced.
