Bremen is home to Germany’s largest integrated shopping and entertainment center. The two construction complexes are lit up as a space ship and its docking station. In addition, the lighting design encompasses the shopping mall, food court with themed restaurants, a cinema complex, and a “space shot” (a catapult-like amusement ride).
The roof construction reminiscent of airfoil wings are illuminated through bands of color which make spectacular light sequences possible. With ten colored lamps per ceiling section, numerous lighting moods are possible.
Urban Space +
The Space Park creates its own urban space on the waterfront and on land. For the shopping center, the lighting fixtures are integrated into the architecture. In contrast, the "Space Ship" is illuminated from a distance.
The entertainment center is lit by HIT floodlights with dichroic filters: the main beam is dark blue and the edge of the cone of light magenta.
Only two floodlights illuminate the awning (2000W HIT stadium floodlights). The sculptural form is optimally presented as a result.
The restaurant is in a large domed room. Various light objects give structure to the area.
The entrance atriums are lit with floodlights that are mounted on the roof and shine through the glass ceiling.
Underground Parking +
The underground parking entrances are lit with low-pressure sodium lamps, a first for this kind of usage. The light is very bright and free of glare, even when looking directly into the lamps.
The facade lighting with dichroic floodlights and the illuminated contour at the base evoke a landed space ship.
Artificial Light +
The artificial light is a significant design parameter for the architectural impact. A range of lights from 2000W HIT lamps to 0.1W LEDs were used to do justice to the large jumps in scale.
