Artificial Lighting, Lighting Controls & Landscape Lighting


Hermes Properties

Afrasia Tower in Mauritius is a key development within Tribeca Central Smart City and is designed to be the Bank’s new architectural symbol. Gensler based the architecture on the concept of simple volumes intersecting each other. An exterior superstructure highlights the structural grid while visually connecting the building volumes and façades. The clean architectural design is reflected also in the interiors where the mixed use of stone and wood, light and golden colors give an elegant and yet functional feel to the lobbies. The artificial lighting intends to support both interior and exterior architectural design, enhancing volumes and materials. An additional layer of interactive lighting is brought to the façade to convert the tower in one of the new landmarks of Tribeca Central Smart City’s night scape.
