Town Hall illumination (Liège)
Client : City of Liège
Years : 2006
Design team : Isabelle CORTEN - Jean-Pierre MAJOT temporary partnership
Scope of appointment : Full appointment (design and implementation)
The lighting scheme reflects the importance not just of the Town Hall’s main facade,but of the building as a whole, by bathing the symmetrical facades in a uniform reddish glow (which brings out the “bull’s blood” red of the facades, so characteristic of many buildings in Liege), while at the same time accentuating the main staircase, entrance doorway and pediment with spotlights.
