Monthey Lighting Plan (Switzerland)

The Lighting Plan of Monthey is a response to targeted aims:

  • To recall the strong natural context of the town, the elements: mineral, plant and water,
  • To emphasise the special characteristics of each part of the town centre, according to topography and function,
  • To support uses, cultural and tourist activities and events.

The choice of lighting was defined on two levels: the far view with views from the bottom and the top of the town, and the close-up view with two routes: “Mysterious Monthey” and “Monthey, along the waterside”.
