Recently we had a client who wanted to see examples of color-changing lighting applications for their location. After researching the best options for color-changing lighting technology and a brainstorming session with our team, we decided the most effective method for presenting the ideas would be to create a computer generated architectural lighting animation. We created two options for the client, the first is a wall washing color changing LED application which uses large light fixtures installed at the base of the building that shoot up a powerful beam of light over the entire building to create drama and accentuate the beauty of the architecture. The second option shows an intelligent lighting system that features individual light bands which combine to make one programmable surface (similar to what we did for Oaklawn Racing & Gaming’s entry structure).
These are only a few of the many options which are available for exterior architectural lighting and which creates a dramatic, eye-catching light show on a building. From subtle to spectacular, lighting can transform spaces and environments through innovative uses of LED systems and technologies. These are also low power consumption, green solutions. The retail goal is to enhance the beauty of the building’s architecture while creating interest to passers-by. I am a part of the design team at I-5 Design & Manufacture and am proud of the projects we create that inspire our clients about the possibilities for their facilities using LED architectural lighting technology.
