RED LINE NORTH
As a first light level comes the functional general lighting given by a feature star-like pattern shape that covers the ceililng while integrating light introducing the passenger in an immersive context. Another light gesture consists of luminous lines inserted seemingly efortlessly inside the pearlescent ceramic tiles covered vaults working as thresholds as well as imposing gates. Through the vaults and also the insertion in pillars and other architectural features the lines reinforce the wayfinding system for the passengers throughtout the whole infrastructure along the various transitions between ground and concourse levels.
Along the circulation areas the seating and rest spaces are located and underlined by a luminous element of surprise, artificial skylights giving out a sense of daylight always pleasant when underground.
The overall goal through lighting was the effort to develop a conceptual journey inside the usual everyday journey for the locals and an immersive experience for the tourist inside a built environment with iconic local architectural features and textures.
