What is Feature / Architectural Lighting?

Architectural Lighting Illuminating The Lourve

Used in both residential and commercial environments, feature or architectural lighting can be used to:

  • dynamically alter the look and feel of a certain space,
  • draw attention to a particular building, product or object,
  • enhance everyday shopping experiences, and
  • even increase productivity levels in the workplace.

Powered by compact, durable and energy efficient LEDs, architectural lighting allows home and business owners to create personalised lighting projections remotely through a series of easy-to-use controls. Users may alter colour, brightness levels, and direction depending on individual preferences and requirements.

Architectural lighting for homes

Whether it’s resting, working, playing, sleeping or eating, our homes are typically where we spend the majority of our free time. We should aim to light our houses or apartments in a way that’s both practical and beneficial to our general well-being.

While some older homes may still use traditional filament light bulbs, advances in LED lighting technology mean that we can now fit lights to places that were previously inaccessible such as skirting boards and borders. Dynamical lighting also allows us the option to alter both the colour and temperature of our in-house lighting to reflect our current mood.

Architectural lighting for offices

The higher the quality and design aesthetics of the lighting in offices and other workspaces, the better our and our colleagues’ productivity levels.

If workplace lights are either too bright or too dim, then workers are likely to become tired more quickly leading to a drop in concentration.

Effective architectural lighting to balance both natural and artificial light sources significantly affects the quality and consistency of our work as well as happiness levels within the workplace.

Architectural lighting for museums & galleries

LED lighting is invaluable for enhancing the experience of visiting a museum, gallery or exhibition.

This is not just for illuminating a particular piece of art in a certain way but also in the conservation of valuable artworks. These artworks are often vulnerable to the excess levels of heat-based lighting produced by old fashioned filament bulbs and traditional strip lighting.

As architectural LED lighting can be controlled remotely or via sensors – you can switch these lights on and off as and when visitors are present and vary the lights’ settings to better reflect the mood or feeling of the works on show at a particular time.

Architectural lighting for places of worship

Whether indoors or outdoors, architectural lighting can be used to illuminate important sacred buildings and monuments. This creates the calm and well-lit environment worshippers prefer and welcome to practise their faith.

Durable and compact LED feature lighting is increasingly being used to draw attention to divine symbols in churches, temples, synagogues, and mosques.

Architectural lighting for shops

In the world of retail, the role of lighting is no longer to simply light up products, aisles and displays. Many small and large retailers are using now strategic architectural lighting to evoke a certain atmosphere or rouse a particular emotion subliminally encouraging a customer to make a purchase.

Retail is sometimes stressful and very tiring work. LED feature lighting in retail environments is also used to ensure your employees are getting enough of the right type of lighting leading to improved productivity levels and reducing absences.
