Lighting concept Bahnhofstraße Lichtenrade
Lightwalk in Berlin
The planning of public lighting for the traffic areas (street) and secondary areas (pedestrian and recreational areas) is an essential part of our lighting concept for Bahnhofstraße Lichtenrade. The street and sidewalk lighting is coordinated with the superordinate lighting concept of the city of Berlin.
In addition to the use of light as a design tool to improve the appearance of public spaces and to increase the quality of stay in Bahnhofstrasse, lighting always serves first to ensure traffic safety. Uniform illuminance, an emphasis on conflict zones and the avoidance of disturbing light (glare) increase safety for road users and support the quality of stay in the urban space. The subspaces (microspaces) defined in the lighting master plan can optimally fulfill their function of structuring the public space, increasing attraction and dwell time even in the dark half of the day or year. Consideration was also given to the future redesign of the commercial street and the lowest possible maintenance and energy costs while optimally fulfilling the lighting task.
