New Facade Lighting for the Museum Wiesbaden

DAY & LIGHT LIGHTING DESIGN as Lighting Design

The modernistic event building RheinMainCongressCenter (RMCC) of the architect Ferdinand Heide, recently finished, is standing in opposite of the neo-classicist Museum of the architect Theodor Fischer, built in 1915. DAY & LIGHT designed the lighting of both facades as well as the outdoor space, to create a town square lighting in a holistic way (except the street lighting).

The lighting of both facades were coordinated to each other: The luminance and light colour contrast shows the layer structure and transparency of the RMCC - warmwhite on internal wooden surfaces and neutral white on the colonnades. This combination is reflected on the museum facade - warmwhite behind the colonnades and neutral white on the exterior surface.

The facade light beams and luminaire positions are optimized to use the moulding shadow to correct the unbalanced facade proportions.
The colum-surface and the statue of Goethe are accentuated by small narrowbeam luminaires above the comum capitals.

The water basins in front of each building are reflecting the appearance of the opposite. The planting beds are underscored by light to arrange and structure the square.
