Architectural Lighting Applications
Architectural lighting has traditionally been the term used to describe the production lighting for museums, exhibitions, landmarks, heritage, retail and leisure. However, increasingly, the requirements for these sectors is overlapping with what has normally been regarded as entertainment lighting.
Architectural lighting can range from general illumination of an area to feature lighting of a particular subject matter. Often architectural lighting will utilise specialist LED technologies to provide interior or exterior illumination of rooms, building facades, gardens, statues and other featured subject matters.
Whilst LED lighting offers exciting possibilities, it is important to recognise that LED lighting is not currently a complete replacement for all other architectural lighting sources.
Traditional tungsten profile fixtures offer a consistent quality of light that is difficult to replicate with LED fixtures and discharge moving lights offer output and features yet to be achieved with an LED alternative. However, embrace LED technology for what it can do well and it will surely add a new dimension to almost any production lighting system.
