As part of a recent renovation plan involving the whole building, the façade of the Philharmonic has been provided with a new groundbreaking lighting system. The solution proposed by leading experts in the light design industry is based on a combination of wall washers using LEDs in RGBW colour configuration. The presence of white LED chips in the colour combination allows the selection of multiple colour combinations with a pure colour rendition, while the dimming option available for all the selected fixtures avoids unnecessary glaring.
In order to enhance the main architectural features of this neoclassic building, a soft and well diffused illumination was required by the appointed lighting designers of MT Elektro, the company in charge of the lighting concept, lighting design, product supply and installation of this prestigious project. The massive front columns, the upper cornices, the recurring arches, as well as the stucco molding and the many decorative elements such as friezes and capitals of the main façade, needed to be lit up in a gentle way that could be able to preserve their architectural integrity and formal elegance, while revealing their true essence in a perfect balance of chiaroscuro tones at dark.
