080 PROJECT / OPERA QUARTER, OSLO, NORWAY


SONG CYCLE


ÅF Lighting was also commissioned to develop a lighting concept for the new Opera Quarter in Oslo, creating a coherent, diverse, visual expression of the space during day and night.


The exterior lighting for the Opera Quarter in Oslo is based on the conceptual theme ‘multiverse’, developed by ÅF Lighting, with each urban stripe representing an individual visual universe. The pedestrian passage on the site functions as a wormhole, binding the quarter together, guiding visitors from one ‘universe’ to the next. The designer’s inten- tion was to underline the special qualities of each urban stripe, while creating a distinct identity for the area, in balance with the surrounding architectural landscape. The bike stripe is located in the centre of the Opera Quarter, the area acting to provide bike parking and bike lanes, as well as creating a distinct urban space. The lighting for the bike stripe, by ÅF Lighting, is composed of spotlighting and integrated bike lights that stage the bike racks.


The spotlighting is achieved by MaxiWoody projectors from iGuzzini that are mounted on nine metre round-conical poles, irregularly spread along the stripe. The projectors are equipped with anti-glare rings and have been aimed with high accuracy to avoid glare and any spill light onto the facades.


ÅF Lighting developed a custom-made solution to integrate small luminaires with white and red LEDs from WIBRE into the hollow frame of the bike racks in order to recreate the visual image of front and rear bike lights. The orientation of the bike racks evoke the feeling that the bikes are either moving towards or away from the observer. The passage crossing the bike stripe is illuminated with custom-made fixtures mounted on five metre poles. The fixtures, developed by ÅF Lighting, emphasize the transversal pedestrian passage ensuring a coherent visual expression throughout the Opera Quarter. Specially designed reflectors provide an even functional lighting while the colour of the luminous housing can be adapted to the surrounding materials and character.
