Dynamic Architectural Lighting: Unleash the Art & Science with Win-E

Dynamic Architectural lighting is a captivating blend of creativity and technical expertise, transforming buildings into breathtaking works of art. At Shenzhen Win-E Illumination Lighting, we specialize in providing innovative lighting solutions that bring architectural masterpieces to life.

Methods of Architectural Lighting:

Building exterior lighting combines overall cast lights, local cast lights, outline lights, internal light transmission, decorative lights, and special lights. These methods enhance architectural forms and artistic lighting.

1. Overall floodlighting

This is the basic way of lighting buildings. In this method, floodlights are mounted outside a building, which illuminate its facade directly at night, reshaping and rendering its image. The effect can show the whole building and its shapes, three-dimensionality, colors, mixture of materials, decorative details, etc. This is what we often call floodlighting. It uses high-pressure sodium, metal halide, and tungsten halogen lamps as its light sources and special large-scale floodlights as its lamps.

2. Partial floodlighting

Local floodlighting is the installation of small floodlights directly on the building to illuminate a certain part of the building. Building facades often feature protrusions, recesses, and undulations, facilitating convenient lamp installation on the surface. Install the illuminator behind the illuminated object to create a sense of volume and depth. Internal structural lighting uses buried floodlighting. Lamps with narrow beams offer rich illumination effects and energy-saving benefits, effectively addressing glare concerns.
For illumination of window frames, arches, small reliefs, and other architectural details on the facade, small floodlights can meet these requirements. This technique can be used in accent lighting of both historic and modern buildings to show dramatic lighting effects. A small floodlight is used locally to illuminate the relief on the building, and small floodlights with narrow beams are set on both sides of the window to project upward to create a solemn composition, creating changes in the vertical direction. With this type of architecture, one always expects to illuminate the most beautiful details and create the most exciting effects. Using different beams helps to create a rhythm with the light, from intense narrow beams to soft wide beams, the light will reveal the details and elegant structure of the building.

3. Contour lighting

Highlight the building’s contours with floodlighting, pixel lights, wall washers, LED media facade screens, and linear light bars. Note neon light limitations for Chinese classical buildings.

Various lighting options offer unique advantages for outline lighting. Incandescent lamps provide simplicity and affordability, while pixel lights and linear lights offer brightness and dynamic effects suitable for commercial buildings. Contour lighting can be used independently. Consider factors like contour shape, materials, maintenance, energy, and cost for optimal selection of contour lights.
