Catholic church of St.Nicholas in Kyiv - a legacy preserved in the city center over a century ago. Until recently, a beautiful monument of architecture at night stood a dark unlit silhouette.
The project has a social basis. Its implementation was made possible thanks to several patron companies - lighting of the Church became a gift to the townspeople.
The task is complicated by the inviolability of the historical facade and we were required to search for a non-standard solution. We have developed specific equipment - very powerful and with extremely narrow two-degree optics. Also, to achieve the shape of light spots, we used the thinnest nano-lenses, which draw round spots of light into ellipses.
In our case, a different solution is not feasible: it is impossible to place additional structures on the historical facade, so we illuminate it from the opposite side of the street from neighboring buildings at a distance of about 100m. Usually, such an architecture is illuminated by a gliding light that creates characteristic shadows. Lighting it differently we calculated light spots of different diameters, covering the facade fragmentarily and thus giving relief to the facade.
Lighting equipment and control system allows you to create various lighting scenarios. The daily scenario is a plain warm white light. To support public holidays or specific events, you can create programs in any color scheme according to a specific occasion. In addition to changing shades, scenarios can be either static or dynamic.
