Lighting today has become a key ingredient of our well-being & occupies prime mind space in Commercial Offices, Software Development Centres, Call-centres, Multiplexes, Townships, City beautification, Public utility areas, homes & other establishments, playing a vital role in the way people experience and understand architecture. Whether buildings and structures are lit naturally by the Day or artificially by the Night, Light is the medium that allows us to see and appreciate the beauty in the architecture around us. In principle, Light is an electromagnetic wave which when hits the eye, creates a sensation of vision and which when hits the supra-charismatic nucleus in the brain (Our Circadian System), controls the various secretions of the brain which in turn controls the overall well-being of the human body.
Good lighting from an Architectural/Interior design perspective helps create a glare-free lighting ambiance, when available in the right quantity, depending on the functionality of the space. Lighting can bring an emotional value to architecture. Whether it’s Daylighting or Artificial lighting, light draws attention to textures, colours, and forms of space, helping architecture achieve its true purpose. Architectural lighting works to serve and enhance the architecture, not merely as an accessory, but to create a cohesive spatial experience. The term encompasses three main factors. The first is ‘Aesthetics’, which is essential for all aspects of Architecture. The second is ‘Ergonomics’ or functionality — Any aspect that improves one’s ability to live, work, function, relax or play, to make the space easier to use. The third aspect is ‘Energy Efficiency & Maintenance’, which ensures that the Carbon footprint is minimized, thus reducing the energy costs & maintenance costs. Architectural lighting design Imagines, Creates, Integrates, Infuses and Organizes lighting into a coordinated system, including factoring in for the maximization of Natural light, Optimisation of Electric light, and Blending the two for the Well-being of the Occupants & the Aesthetics of the space.
