Lighting Concept „Zwinger“

For the illumination of the “Zwinger” in Dresden, WINKELS CONCEPTS developed a multi stage lighting concept. Various lighting scenarios are available for differing occasions by the use of flood lights, accent lighting and linear and point spot lighting of the architectural elements.
The lighting systems, which had been developed in planning and model studies, could be simulated in advance with renderings using real light calculations on the computer. Time consuming test lighting serves only to check the results.
The energy consumption was considerably reduced using modern lights and LED technology. Warm tone light colours complementary to the sand stone tone of the façade, show the “Zwinger” in its full glory even in the dark.
Under the aspect of the preservation of historic buildings, lighting systems were to be recommended that gave a high quality light source even by concealed arrangements.
