Orbit Urban Office Campus is a workspace that combines functionality with modern, avant-garde architecture by LC Architects & Vikelas Architects.
The objective of creating a building with a strong visual identity was achieved by having the architectural practice work hand in hand with Thanos Danilof and his team, responsible for the lighting project, right from the planning stage.
Greenery plays a large role in the project’s uniqueness: it is integrated into the sinuous lines of the facade and surrounds the structure in flowerbeds filled with both low plants and trees. The lighting design studio chose Ginko projectors to light the vegetation in the green areas around the complex. These fixtures feature a high colour rendering index (CRI >90) and 4000K white light and are equipped with anti-glare accessories such as snoots and honeycomb louvres.
In the photo showing the atrium, crisscrossing shadows decorate the path that leads from the greenery into the building. The shadows are generated by Ginko 3.0 projectors with 13° optics, fixed in the ground with a stake, that create the projection of elegant foliage in chiaroscuro.
