Emirates Tower Boulevard, DubaiDaylight
The Emirates Tower Boulevard new entrance stair is a significant entry point to the extensive retail outlets of the Emirates Towers.
The outer envelope radiates light during the day and out at night. Its structure within glisens in a beautifully detailed combination of chrome and glass. Where glass is the predominant material in an architectural environment such as the stair case, artificial lighting plays a larger role at dusk and at night. However the careful integration and understanding of the space with natural daylight has been carefully considered and seamlessly achieved.
An architectural lighting control system has been used to limit the use of artificial light in the space when natural light is present. This enables the space to operate automatically through the day and early evening when natural light levels change.
