Revisiting Brutalist architecture
Nulty + lighting design studio transformed the outside appearance of this building by embedding light into the space. The choice of architectural lighting allowed us to give a fresh look to the extremely stern lines without distorting the original architectural style. Gardens and driveways alternate with courts and fountains; Light is placed in such a way as to guide residents and visitors through the intricate plan of the complex, softening the stern aesthetics of the environment with a calm and welcoming atmosphere. Hidden lights, wall washer effects, and subtle, delicate lighting emphasize the boldness of the building without weighing it and conveying its intrinsic history.
