An Overview of Lighting Design at “Kyoto Kaguraoka Rengetsuso”
“Kyoto Kaguraoka Rengetsuso” was built to not only maintain traditions and forms unique to Kyoto, but also to serve as the pinnacle of guest house and care facility use that would increase business value. The lighting was conceptually designed to expand the space using light. Lighted panels within guest room serve as transom windows of light. Although the traditional function of such transoms was to admit natural light and to divide space, the softer partitions that arise from the surfaces of artificial light blend into the space to realize that concept. Standing lanterns were also designed to represent moonlight reflected in lotus ponds, using a layered Japanese paper look. The lighted panels and the lanterns make use of the acrylic technologies used to create tank panels in aquariums.
