Bordeaux Law Courts,
France

Daylight

The lighting for the unique law courts in Bordeaux was quite challenging as we wanted to create a relatively uniform illumination of the Court Rooms to help reinforce the architecture at night.

This required fairly gentle washing of light to each of the individual structures from fixtures that had to be located such that they were accessible for maintenance, whilst not spilling light beyond the curved façades as this would have created unacceptable levels of spill light and glare.
