MATERIALS & NATURAL LIGHT TO INTERACT WITH ARCHITECTURE

Light is what allows us to view and define the world around us, and playing on light variations can definitely help create a particular atmosphere and enhance perception. Once you consider this, the independence between light and architecture becomes obvious. 

 

In fact, working with light as if it was a material or a tool - as if it belonged to the project - is the key to an attractive, stimulating and inspiring building or realization. Good use of light gives architects the possibility to model space, to create nice places and to arouse mysterious or heavenly emotions.  

 

Every great architect through history has understood that light is of prime importance, and this is still true today. 

LIGHT SIMULATION TO MAKE EARLY DECISIONS ABOUT THE DESIGN AND MATERIALS

Thanks to its range of simulation software, OPTIS offers exciting possibilities to the mesmerizing sphere of architecture. SPEOS, optical software integrated into several CAD platforms, is a unique architectural lighting solution aiming at enhancing the use of natural light and improving artificial lighting, to reduce energy consumption.
