Zumtobel Lights up Austrian Art and Concert Hall with LEDs

The 1,000 square metres of new space for art, culture and artistic creativity has been built largely underground in Arlberg. The architecture of Jürgen Kitzmüller is very natural and uses a pared-down stylistic idiom. "The rooms only develop their full effect with the right light," explains the architect Jürgen Kitzmüller. With its flexible and modern equipment, the architecture of Europe's highest Contemporary Art & Concert Hall concentrates on the essentials. The wood-panelled concert auditorium has been designed so that the curved walls and cavities behind these produce outstanding acoustics.

The lighting solution from Zumtobel on the one hand sets off the architecture perfectly, and on the other it satisfies the various requirements arising from the hall's use for both art exhibitions and concerts. "Zumtobel has drawn on its many years of experience from cultural projects throughout the world. This know-how and the professional approach made a valuable contribution to a project with which we ourselves broke new ground," says Florian Werner, the owner and Managing Director of the arlberg1800 RESORT. As the owner, Florian Werner had to face up to a whole new challenge with a cultural building. He placed great store in a perfect technical and aesthetic implementation when realizing his vision. When it came to the lighting concept, a customized LED lighting solution was realised for the different rooms and areas.

The architecturer employs various customized luminiares to realize the characteristics of each space.

Special luminaires for a bespoke LED lighting solution
A special luminare was developed for the art gallery: warm-white, bright LED light lines, with a cold-white light wave running through the floor and ceiling, emphasise the effect of the nine metre high room and highlight its use of materials. The VIVO LED spotlight system proves its flexibility for direct lighting in the art gallery and other rooms. The precise and even light distribution as well as the excellent colour rendering are ideal to spotlight works of art in exhibitions, though also allow work with lighting effects during concerts and events. Whereas more functional luminaires ensure orientation and a pleasant atmosphere in the foyer and aisles, the decorative pendant luminaire SCONFINE as designed by Matteo Thun plays with the effect created by shape, light and space in the bar area.

Warn white and bright LED strips illuminate the stairs and the ceiling of the concert hall.
