The 2015 German Prize for Lighting Design in the category Museum was awarded to Kardorff Ingenieure Lichtplanung.
This private museum for architectural drawing located in Berlin-Prenzlauer Berg not only displays the collection of the Tchoban Foundation, but also the collections of internationally leading cultural institutions.
Many of the highly delicate paper exhibits display a great sensitivity to light. This is why UV-free lighting was chosen. The intensities of illumination can be adjusted through the control system alone to fit the changing exhibits.
In a row parallel to the wall, the linear LED profile lights evenly illuminate the walls of the exhibit space. The exhibits can be hung without restrictions and without having to adjust the lighting.
The building is illuminated from two locations. The resulting shadows emphasize the building’s form.
All lighting for the exhibits has been realized using LED technology.
