Site: DTU Lyngby, Danmark
Area: 49.500 m2
A master plan for lighting at DTU will ensure a pleasant and functional campus area both now and in the future. This master plan will make DTU attractive, comfortable and safe during the dark hours. Four important parameters must be optimised: economy, design, experience and coordination of overall lighting. From north to south runs a long avenue of big beech trees and green paving in the form of grass plugged concrete. You could call it Denmark’s most beautiful car park but it is more than just a car park. The avenue is a distinctive landscape element with a unifying character and one of the most important lighting elements of all of DTU.
The avenue in figures: 1,150 meters, 114 rows of beech trees in three double rows, 49,500 m².
The avenue is one of the principal elements at DTU. The purpose of the lighting is to emphasise the experience of the avenue. In order to achieve its goal Kragh & Berglund is currently testing six different lighting concepts.
1. Central lighting with effect lighting on the inner side of the two outer avenues
2. Central lighting with effect lighting on the inner avenue
3. Lighting between the avenues, functional lighting in the car park area and room lighting on the trees
4. Lighting placed centrally in the axis with functional lighting on the parking spaces
5. Light masts placed symmetrically with functional lighting on the parking spaces
6. Lighting as bollards
