Refortifying a 100 year old home; eco-sensible architecture; monochrome commercial interiors; spectacular lighting design & more.


Like salt, light is an indispensable commodity. The right measure (read luminance, direction, colour) is a significant determinant; for an all or nothing experience!

The transformation of the actor's foyer in Zaan theatre with a referential lighting concept; the amazing juxtaposition of natural and artificial luminance at the Staedel underground gallery; the revivalist tribute to Van Gogh's historic Light of Arles...are engaging features that speak volumes about designing with light.

Just as compelling, are the commercial spaces of the cocktail bar Gamsei with a quirky regional touch and the minimalist monochrome office interiors. And inspiring conscientiousness are the two Indian residences that profess and affirm eco-sensible and sustainable architectural practices.

Enjoy the issue. It will spark considerable insights.
