Project Zero represents a multi-functional development consisting of residential, retail and office units. The building is located on a prominent street with direct view of all cars and adjacent homes making the lighting scheme critical.
The design of the architecture as well as the introduction of the rolling mashrabiyas results in a constantly changing external impression of the building. This becomes especially evident during night time hours where light penetrating from behind screens makes them that much more present.
A range of light effects including the interior lighting, a wash of light on balcony walls, and grazing of solid walls aims to accentuate the screens as they are moved by tenants and enhance the changes in the external elevations, and to create a more consistent exterior night time impression when all or the majority of interior lights are off and tenants are either away or asleep.
Keeping in mind the primary residential use of the buildings, the façade lighting aims to be unobtrusive, simple and elegant, with only neutral white colors used for façade lighting, and more warmer tones of light are used for interior lighting.
Selected light sources are full cut off, with care taken to avoid exposed washing of walls, and lights directed up into the night sky.
