Optimizing Daylight, Enhancing Spirituality: Illuminating devine on a Budget

The challenge of illuminating the facades and sacred hall of the temple complex, with the goal of creating a prestigious image on a very low budget. We also worked on optimizing daylight in the sacred hall.
With the use of local products, we were able to create a daily architectural lighting scheme that was enhanced with a layer of blue wall washing to celebrate the blue color of Krishna for festive nights. While some elements of the original concept could not be executed due to the client’s priorities, such as the entrance lighting design, the overall target was achieved, resulting in a satisfied client and happy visitors. In fact, visitors even praised the lighting design on their blogs, with one example provided for reference. link
Atelier Lights was able to blend animated and spiritual elements to create a memorable and effective lighting design for the temple complex.
