Artificial Lighting

The lighting supports different daylight situations and accentuates the sequence of different rooms. The line is an essential formal element of the lighting concept. A circumferential band of light in the atria increases the spatial impact. A comparable frame of light can be found in the conference rooms. Vertical flush-mounted light lines illuminate corridors and stairwells. As a contrast, the lights in the canteen and the cafeteria have been arranged freely. The Ministry is illuminated representatively to the outside by its interior lighting. The lighting of the entrances to the building and of the city square is integrated into the architectural elements.
