Light contrasts at Riga Elementary school
Elementary school Friča Brīvzemnieks, Riga - LV
Conceived and fulfilled by the Latvian company LUCIDUS SIA, the lighting design of Riga elementary school aims at enhancing in a wonderful shade of warm white the relevant architectural details of the building, following a spot lighting scheme, which highlights mainly the white decorations.
A number of Parade D-W-6, 9 and 12 in warm white configuration were installed on the building façade to down light, according to their length, the different features and patterns of the school walls with a grazing effect.
The three rows of windows on the main façade, the roof-top decorations and patterns, the turrets as well as the stairstep design of the crow-stepped gables, are beautifully enlivened by an alternating illumination scheme, which, leaving selected areas of the façades in shade, creates an unexpected and at the same time revealing chiaroscuro.
