ModuleX® was selected for the renovation of the entrance area and elevator hall of D Tower Nishi-Shinjuku, a high-rise office building in the Nishi-Shinjuku area.
The client wanted to create a space where the building's visitors can feel nature, in which abundant greenery continues without interruption, in line with the original concept of the tower building as a "big tree."
To highlight the elements and textures of the newly designed space while maintaining harmony with the existing environment, we used our original Lighting Modulation in Viewing Angle Range® lighting design method.
In order to create a space where visitors can feel nature, we examined where and how much light energy was needed in each space, and made a lighting plan accordingly to achieve the optimum balance of brightness and illumination.
In addition, to coordinate the environment of the overall space, the brightness specifications and the number of spotlights were defined in consideration of the display specifications and the expected brightness of the video contents to be played.
Our original Lighting Naturalization® lighting design method was used to invite visitors entering the building into the space in a natural manner.
We developed a lighting plan that takes into account the psychological impact on visitors as they proceed from the entrance to the elevator hall, which is illuminated only by artificial light, resulting in reduced stress felt by visitors during their waiting time.
The installation of a display on the entire wall surface at the back of the elevator hall was almost unprecedented. Although the environment does not allow natural light to reach there, three to four video clips themed on seasonal scenery are played repeatedly throughout the day to provide visitors with a feeling of nature through the footage projected on the wall.
For the display, resin-coated surface protection is applied onto the ordinary screen panel so that it can be used safely, even in places where people might touch it. The GOB (glue on board) screen features a super high-definition 1.9 mm pitch with enhanced shock resistance, display surface water resistance, and dust resistance.
The overall space was designed in an integrated manner to add value to the entire building, considering not only artificial light, but also natural light, visual content, and other impact elements.
