Detail lighting emphasize the column details and its spill light helps to illuminate the linear hanging plantation. Every part of the lighting design was developed in careful consideration of minimizing energy, glare, spill light, color temperature, and CRI to provide a high performance in the space.
The lighting design concept for Plaza Maria Extension was challenging. Open skylight glass was designed to let sun penetrate the areas and it equipped with retractable roof to prevent discomfort glare and unwanted excessive heat.
