Old city centers
Modern LED street lighting adapting to old architecture
Designing a modern LED street lighting into old city centers is a challenging task requiring individal project approach. Usually historic lamps are employed to illuminate streets and passageways in a warm white light enhancing the character of the area while concurrently supporting pedestrian safety and security. Goal is to maintain low uniform light levels to enhance historic atmosphere, deliver balanced light levels, and reducing contrast. Careful consideration must also be given to limit obtrusive light spill through the windows of residential properties and at the same time to provide sufficient lighting to significant historic landmarks to support wayfinding and enhance legibility.
