Designed by the renowned architect Arata Isozaki, the Thessaloniki Concert Hall was to provide a contemporary cultural and conference center of international standards with the capacity to host various events, including concerts, ballet, theatre and opera, cultural and art expositions and conferences. Geometrical lines, extended glass surfaces and elements of steel compose an image of imposing simplicity.
The lighting project plays a key role in this relation between the landscape and the volumes. The minireef placed on top of a forest of poles simulate the nature and their 360° light beam is able to create a starry sky or the light of the boats in the harbor.
The Slot downlights on the entrance canopy facing the sea are presented in series of multiple, ordered and symmetrical forms, becoming important elements of the final appearance of the building.
The lighting projects plays finally with bright signs scattered in the open spaces that overlook the sea, creating sudden and changing prospective views.
