Outline

A "light"-themed research facility that will be a new development base for a lighting manufacturer. By exploring the behavior and atmosphere of natural and artificial light, we aimed to realize creative spaces where diverse forms of light interact. The monolithic facade free of ornamentation is the necessary result of realizing an institute for researching "light". Our aim is not simply to incorporate illumination, but to create an integration of design where boundaries between architecture and illumination disappear. The long-sought way of "light" in architecture and illumination is here.
