Lighting plan for the “Cité Moderne” housing project at Berchem Sainte-Agathe, Brussels

In order to provide an agreeable, reassuring nocturnal ambience for the inhabitants, Radiance35 has focused its lighting scheme on the poetry of the area.

The design is based on low-level lighting echoing the rhythm of the facades, together with more finely-tuned lighting of squares, places of relaxation and plants.

Thus, at night, the atmosphere of the cité will be one that is in keeping with the human scale character of the neighbourhood.
