The lighting project in the office of A. Pashenko’s Creative Architectural Studio, implemented jointly with the team of TAM Pashenko and the System Integration Bureau, is an example of an innovative and maximally conscious approach to creating a light working environment.
Office spaces are becoming more creative and multifunctional. Even in a certain functional area, there is a variability of processes, which requires appropriate light scenarios. And most importantly - people working in these spaces at different times of the day at all seasons spend a large percentage of their time here. And to support their effectiveness, vivacity, emotional background, we applied the principles of biodynamic, or circadian, lighting in this project, because light is not only an integral factor for the visual receipt of information, but also affects the endocrine system, affecting our activity.
In modern offices, they are increasingly moving away from the prevailing flood light. Therefore, in the illumination of spaces, we have provided scenarios with various combinations of direct and reflected, directional and scattered light.
At the entrance, the voluminous logo of the creative workshop is effectively emphasized by the falling shadows from the directed light sources, in the case of which a special hood is built in so as not to blind passing visitors.
Lighting of workplaces, as well as other functional areas, is subject to the principles of biodynamics and changes the shades of light as close as possible this office space to the external environment.
In the morning, the spectrum in the room with a cold shade of 5700 K gradually becomes neutral by noon and in the evening sets employees to complete the working day, becoming more and more warm to 2700K.
To illuminate workplaces, we individually developed light panels with modular linear light sources.
As you move away from the windows, linear luminaires in the ceiling panels change their brightness section by section depending on the intensity of natural light, giving the window artificial light less than in the interior.
In the light panels above each workstation, spotlights with narrow optics are built-in, allowing you to individually accent the surface of the desktop for each employee, without affecting the others.
Thanks to the professionals of the Bureau of System Integration (Kiev), a large office has implemented a sophisticated control system for all multifaceted lighting scenarios (ergonomic switching through keypads or special software on gadgets, dynamically changing intensity and maintaining uniform illumination, changing color temperature throughout the day ) and Ukraine’s first Lutron Quantum automatic window shading control system.
The manager’s office and the meeting room also have several different functional light scenes with the ability to select the most suitable scenario according to the type of activity, be it a lively meeting, camera discussion, focused work, etc.
The combination of different types of fixtures and a detailed control system allows you to make the space voluminous, variable, filled with accents, shadows, functional and decorative light.
Staircase lighting is also linked to the rest of the rooms by a single principle and changes the spectrum of light according to the time of day. The staircase ceiling is a solid light box that shines softly and evenly with a smooth change in the color temperature of the light.
For the office kitchen, the team at our Expolight ArtGlass division has crafted craft glass shades.
Lighting in the office of the A. Pashenko’s Creative Architectural Studio team is an example of how, with the help of professional lighting, you can create a comfortable space for the active and diverse activities of many people.
