This hall sits between the two parts of a large office complex, and serves as an entry hall and connection brace. The solar protection louvers (shown partially on the left) are mounted with a little distance to each other, to allow the sun to paint a moving pattern on the floor.
At night, the visual appearance of the space is turned inside out. The glass walls become dark, while the walls (in a different color in this simulation) are illuminated. The rest of the lighting is positioned locally for effects, and to brighten up the circulation areas.
From the outside, the appearance of the hall is completely transparent, even at night. This is possible through the precisely arranged local lighting, and by opening the sun protection.
