VEF Culture Palace: White is an evergreen

Culture Palace, Riga - LV

After a major restoration, the Palace of Culture of Riga has recently reopened its doors celebrating its new architectural and organizational layout with a series of cultural events.

As part of this recent comprehensive renovation programme, a new LED lighting system has been installed at the VEF palace by the Lavian company LUCIDUS SIA to enhance its exterior and interior architectural structure with a smart combination of warm and cold white light.

Fitted with a compact body and mounting bracket for an easy installation, the chosen linear modules of the PARADE D-W-12 MK3 series offer the utmost lighting design compatibility and maximum mounting comfort.

A warm white accent was preferred by the appointed Lighting Designer Andrejs Kalašņikovs to light up the columned side and front porches of the building, while a nice shade of cool white was chosen to highlight the rest of the outside walls. This simple but effective lighting scheme, just alternating warm and cold white shades in a skillful way, is capable of reaching a breathtaking final result.

As for the interior lighting of the amazing foyer, an array of PARADE D-W-12 MK3 in warm white configuration has been installed along the perimeter of the ceiling in order to deliver a functional and decorative illumination to this beautiful area, often used to host exhibitions and standing receptions.

The chosen warm white shade discretely enhances the majestic green marble columns that frame the foyer with elegance, boosting the allure of this stylish venue while delivering a remarkable functional illumination.
