LIGHTING MASTERPLAN FOR SINGAPORE'S CITY CENTRE

SINGAPORE2006 URBAN REDEVELOPMENT AUTHORITY

This lighting masterplan for Singapore’s city center enhances five qualities of this tropical metropolis,

including the hot and humid climate, intense sunlight, lush greenery, cultural melting pot, and waterscape, to

transform it into a contemporary garden city. The master plan also explores options to create a signature

nightscape for the city and lays out distinctive guidelines for four main districts; Orchard Road, Singapore

River, Bras Basah Bugis, and Central Business District (CBD) / Marina Bay.


Future Nightscape of CBD

Orchard Road


Singapore River

Pedestrian Mall, Orchard Road


New Downtown at Marina Bay

チャンギ 空 港 ターミナル 2 改 修 計 画








CHANGI AIRPORT TERMINAL 2 UPGRADING

SINGAPORE 2006 GENSLER INTERNATIONAL / RSP ARCHITECTS PLANNERS & ENGINEERS

Known as one of the most efficient airports around the world, the Singapore Changi Airport, was a 15-year

old facility in need of a large-scale renovation. We proposed to utilize daylight to compliment the tropical

planters placed around the modern and expansive space of the newly re-designed terminal. Within the

24-hour operation scheme and among the continuous lighting changes we designed a dramatic reverse of

the day and night lighting environments.


ワールドシティタワーズ(アクアタワー)








WORLD CITY TOWERS AQUA TOWER

TOKYO 2006 SUMITOMO REALITY & DEVELOPMENT / NIKKEN SEKKEI / SHIMIZU CORPORATION

Built in the Tennozu Isle District of Tokyo, this high-rise condominium is a top-class residential complex.

Resembling a luxury hotel, downlights were discretely used to accentuate the beauty of the vast entrance

lobby and uplights emphasized the grainy texture of the timber ceiling. The combination of general

downlights and ceiling ambient light creates a comfortable atmosphere not found most residential complexes.


シンガポール 国 立 博 物 館









THE NATIONAL MUSEUM OF SINGAPORE

SINGAPORE 2006 W ARCHITECTS / CPG CONSULTANTS

This restoration project to transform the Singapore History Museum into the National Museum of Singapore

preserved the original colonial structure and constructed a new glass architectural addition. The new structure

was built over the top of the old building, with the entire colonial façade illuminated and visible through the

new glass front. The renewed main entrance of the old building is illuminated in warm light that carefully

accentuates its architectural features, creating a striking new presentation of the building.


表 参 道 akarium








OMOTESANDO akarium

TOKYO 2006 OMOTESANDO AKARIUM COMMITTEE

After eight years, the winter illuminations along Omotesando are back and, learning from past projects, we

needed a plan that would not damage the trees along this famous tree-lined street. The project focused on the

atmosphere surrounding the street as an approach to Meiji Shrine. We temporarily coverd the existing

streetlights with LED lanterns to represent the unique culture of lantern light in Japan. The lanterns flicker like

real candles along the 1-kilometer long stretch, wrapping the entire area in a calming atmosphere. We hope

this illumination becomes an annual year-end and New Year holidays event along Omotesando.


バイドフォード ジャンクションライティング,

オーチャードロード








LIGHTING WORKS AT BIDEFORD JUNCTION, ORCHARD ROAD

SINGAPORE 2006 URBAN REDEVELOPMENT AUTHORITY / SINGAPORE TOURISM BOARD

Bideford Road Junction lies in the most busy & highly visible area of Singapore - Orchard Road. The brief

was to design lighting for the pedestrian/traffic junction, when vehicular movement comes to a halt and

pedestrians cross the road. Light is meant to play a colorful and playful part during this 1-minute transition.

Light is projected onto the pedestrian zone in the center of the junction, with different themes at regular

intervals. Passers-by see themselves intersected with images and color. The show has the possibility to

adapt and evolve with flexible programming options as per the needs of the age.


くろず 情 報 館 「 壺 畑 」










TSUBOBATAKE

KAGOSHIMA 2006 ARCHITECT FIVE PARTNERSHIP

In one sweep, Sakurajima Island and fields of fermenting

rice vinegar jugs are both in view from the beautiful

location of the Tsubobatake Building in Kagoshima

Prefecture. Shaped as a small mound, the building

consists of a first floor and basement with one end of

the large roof raised up over the entrance. All indoor

and outdoor lighting is unified at 3000K. The warmth

of this lighting is quietly nestled into the architecture and

expresses the sharpness and strength of the structure.


マリオット プールテラス スイート












MARRIOTT POOL TERRACE SUITES

SINGAPORE 2006 ECO ID ARCHITECTS /

ECO ID DESIGN CONSULTANCY

At the corner of Orchard Road and Scotts Road in

Singapore’s main commercial streets, sits the Marriott

Hotel. To create a resort like ambience within the city

limits, along with renovation of the restaurant and pool

area, poolside villas were also added. A blue spotlight,

mounted on the top of the hotel tower paints the pool

deck in blue, flattering the warm lantern light spilling

over the terrace.


ボタニック オン ロイド










THE BOTANIC ON LLOYD

SINGAPORE 2006 MKPL ARCHITECTS

A condominium built in the affluent residential

neighborhood near Orchard Road in Singapore. The

landscaping is lush with winding curves and gentle light

emerging from the pool and void area. Light from the

oval-shaped clubhouse, the focal point of the property,

penetrates the walls and is reflected in the mirror pool,

creating a delightful waterscape for the residents.


港 北 センタープレイス











KOHOKU CENTER PLACE

KANAGAWA 2006 TOKYU LAND CORPORATION

+ 3 other companies / CENTRAL CONSULTANT

Lush greenery surrounds this large-scale condominium

complex with seven lighting concepts to compliment

the green residential environment. In the Canal Garden,

moonlight simulated lighting and bollards are rhythmically

placed among the shrubs for a delightful view while

looking out of a window or during a nightly stroll. Also,

soft indirect lighting along the hallways creates an

overall attractive streetscape for the small community.


グランドヴィクトリアホテル







GRAND VICTORIA HOTEL

TAIPEI 2006 DA LAI ENTERTAINMENT / ANTHONY YAO'S DESIGN HOUSE

A colonial-style hotel built in a redeveloped area just outside of Taipei. The main lighting features are the

symbolic carillon and motif along the top of the hotel. Lighting scene changes can be coordinated with the

outdoor chapel and wedding party events.


中 條 不 燃 木 ビル








CHUJO INFLAMMABLE WOOD BUILDING

TOKYO 2006 KAZUHIRO ISHII ARCHTECT & ASSOC.

Doubling as a residence and office, this slender, 4-meter wide, 9-story tall building is finished in fire-resistant

cedar. We were especially attentive to not only the exterior lighting, but also the interior lighting to emphasize

the warm of the wood finish and its softness in the light of the night. Light from the windows, balconies, and

voids all help to create an inviting façade and soft wooden features.


インペリアル












THE IMPERIAL

SINGAPORE 2006 DCA ARCHITECTS

Surrounded by a business district and trendy outlets,

this condominium provides a live-work-play environment

for its residents. The lighting design is coordinated to

fade into the architectural detail of the structure and

presents a chic and elegant lighting environment.

From the entrance to the pool deck and then to the

garden terrace, sequential changes lead one through

the different visual scenes of this lighting design.


ウインク, タージ プレジ デント ムンバイ











WINK, TAJ PRESIDENT, MUMBAI

MUMBAI 2006 PIEM HOTELS / STUDIO GLITT

Completing the antique theme, the interior designer,

use materials and motif from “ the good ol’ days,” to

create a stylish new Asian bar for the renewal opening

of the Wink, Taj President Mumbai. Variations of jali

also created layers of space and the appearance of

depth in the design. Our main goal was to emphasize

these various materials and appearance of depth with

a strategic lighting design.


国 際 文 化 会 館 保 存 再 生







INTERNATIONAL HOUSE OF JAPAN RENEWAL

TOKYO 2006 MITSUBISHI JISHO SEKKEI

In preservation of modern architecture, the façade of the old International House of Japan was left untouched,

while the interior underwent a complete renewal and addition of a new hall opening up to the garden. For a

unified appearance, the garden lighting was also revised to compliment the architectural lighting design.


ソワン フィトニック








SOINS PHYTONIQUE

TOKYO 2006 PALFFY & ASSOCIATES ARCHITECTS & PLANNERS

Indirect lighting was used throughout the design to accentuate different textures and create a place of calm

in the newest restaurant and spa of the Minami Aoyama District in Tokyo. In the restaurant, dual-function

candle-shaped pendants reflect ambient light off the ceiling and compliment it with general downllighting.

The uplights softly wash the large walls and glass surfaces, creating various expressions as the lights

gradually change over the course of the day.


アクティ 横 浜 山 下 町







ACTY YOKOHAMA YAMASHITACHO

KANAGAWA 2006 URBAN RENAISSANCE AGENCY / WORKSTATION

A residential complex renewal project by Urban Renaissance Agency, located near Yokohama Chinatown.

Because of a large apartment building close to the perimeter of the site, one challenge was a fairly dim

void and second floor garden deck. From the inner garden, a glance upwards reveals soft cove lighting

along all corridors helping to create a sophisticated garden atmosphere. Indirect lighting was also used in

the community void and entrance lobby for a welcoming appearance.

ロイヤルクリスタル 銀 座










ROYAL CRYSTAL GINZA

TOKYO 2006 NIKKEN SEKKEI

The Royal Crystal Ginza is one of many buildings with

luxury boutiques along Namiki-dori Street in Ginza,

Tokyo. During the day, the sky is reflected in the all-glass

façade making the building seem transparent, but we

were challenged to create a crystal-like image at night.

After repeated on-site experiments and, like much of

the façade lighting in the Ginza vicinity, LED lighting

was used to create a glamorous, but regal façade

lighting design.


森 英 恵 展 手 で 創 る










HANAE MORI HAUTE COUTURE,

THE ART OF HAND CRAFTSMANSHIP

TOKYO 2006 HANAE MORI FOUNDATION /

MORRISON MURAKAMI ARCHITECTS

For the first time, the lobby and hallways of the New

National Theatre, Tokyo were turned into a gallery for

fashion designer Hanae Mori’s haute couture collection

exhibition. The festive, but elegant attire overflowed

from the exhibition area, as spotlights highlighted the

life-like mannequins as if they were on stage. Cuts of

light and shadow created a dramatic stage for the

“models.”


ザ ピア アット ロバートソンキー












THE PIER AT ROBERTSON QUAY

SINGAPORE 2006 AXIS ARCHITECTS

PALNNERS / SITETECTONIX

The Pier at Robertson Quay is enclosed on one side

by the Singapore River and on the other by trendy

nightclubs along Mohamed Sultan Road. Lighting for

the riverside garden was carefully positioned as to not

interrupt the vistaand to create an elegant private

space for the residents. However, lighting for the street

side entrance was fused with the architectural and

landscaping details for a striking “public face.”

After an 8-year absence, the holiday illumination

along Omotesando was revived in 2006. Designed

by LPA, Kaoru Mende was interviewed on the NHK

program “ News Watch 9.” Without being obligated

to past illumination design concepts, LPA proposed

softly glowing lantern in the image of “Japanese

Light” to adore the 1km long tree-lined street.

Mende spoke freely on the behind the scenes

workings of the project, as members battled with

the amount and quality of light.


LPA 2006 年 の 概 況 と2007 年 の 展 望


LPA 2006 Activities & 2007 Goals

Numerous projects completion and commencement

The year 2006 was one of the busiest years for LPA. Among the number of works we were involved, a new

lighting masterplan for Singapore’s City Center, commissioned by Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) of

Singapore, is a project of special mention. LPA worked on the overall lighting concepts and guidelines for the city

center. It took us a good two and a half years including hardworking efforts compiling site surveys and analysis,

but was an honor to get involved in this challenge to creating a vision for urban lighting planning.


Exhibition on urban lighting held in Singapore

In conjunction with the official launch of the lighting master plan for Singapore, the government authority (URA)

held a special exhibition titled “LIGHTING UP OUR CITY CENTRE” on 21 November, 2006. It will run until March

2007 at The URA Centre in Singapore. Please visit this important exhibition and you will see how cities around

the globe could have their own distinct lighting styles.

Four projects received international lighting design awards

LPA was bestowed with International Illumination Design Awards (IIDA), presented by the Illuminating Engineering

Society of North America, for One George Street, Singapore (architects: SOM New York and DCA Singapore) and

The Kyoto State Guest House (Architects: Nikken Sekkei). The Kyoto State Guest House also won the International

Association of Lighting Designers Award (IALD) along with Hiroshima City Naka Incineration Plant (architect: Yoshio

Taniguchi). Also, Kansai Electric Power Company Building / liv-lit in Osaka (architects: Nikken Sekkei and others)

received the Illuminating Engineering Institute of Japan (IEJI) Design Award for Light and Lighting, the top lighting

award in Japan. We are extremely delighted and proud to receive such awards and would like to thank the project

teams.



Unique street lighting projects in Omotesando, Tokyo and Orchard Road, Singapore

LPA was involved in two festive lighting projects in urban space during this year. One was a temporary illumination

during the winter season with an environmentally friendly approach titled “akarium” along the fashionable

Omotesando Street, Tokyo. The other was creative pedestrian Junction lighting with theatrical elemets from light

projections. This permanent installation is at the famous Orchard Road in Singapore. Creating festivities of light

has become more and more recognized in urban settings.

Transnational Lighting Detectives forum held in Singapore

Since its first forum was held in Tokyo at the end of year 2002, the Transnational Lighting Detectives have

organized an annual forum in Stockholm, Hamburg and New York. The Singapore Chapter organized the

5th forum, held last November, with the focus on façade lighting. We look forward to seeing you in the 6th

TN Forum in Copenhagen early December 2007!

京 都 Kyoto, JapanFeb.15-17






Variations on Light and Shadow

Although the streets of Kyoto are a typical gridiron pattern, unique

spatial conditions, derived from the machiya or Japanese-style

townhouses and small alleyways, are found all over the city. All of

these spatial features and variations of light and shadow are nestled

into the city’s framework and lead us to lighting environments only

found in Kyoto.

東 京 Tokyo, Japan Jun.7







Nihonbashi and Sumida Rivers, Vistas of Water, Bridges, and Light

In the heart of Tokyo, historical Nihonbashi River and Sumida

River wind amongst vistas of water, bridges, and light. Nihonbashi

River lies hidden under a system of highway overpasses and the

Sumida River is wide and commanding with many signature bridges.

The night reveals beautiful water and lightscapes surrounding the

bridges and shores as the rivers cut through the city.


広 島 Hiroshima, JapanAug.5-7





Light for Color and Lanterns for Prayer

Every year on August 6 atomic bomb victims are remembered in

a peace memorial ceremony in Hiroshima. On this night thousands

of lanterns are set afloat down the Motoyasu River near the Hiroshima

Peace Memorial as part of the remembrance and prayer for peace.

We also surveyed the lighting environments of downtown Hiroshima

and World Heritage Site, Itsukushima Shinto Shrine.

台 北 Taipei, Taiwan Aug.15-18






A Blend of the Past and Present

Taipei 101, the world’s tallest building, looming over the east end of

Taipei. Off the main streets old buildings line the side streets creating

unique little neighborhoods. Every night is like a festival at the Shilin

Night Market with the jimble-jamble of lighting. Day or night, the

streets of Taipei are alive with activity as the old and new are

perfectly blended.

東 京 Tokyo, Japan Nov.17-18







Shinjuku. A Urban Light Trap

The 24-hour, sleepless district of Tokyo, Shinjuku and Kabukicho,

are a flood of lights that just keep getting brighter and brighter as the

night goes on. Entire facades are covered in lights with neon signs

and big screen images to top off the scene. With redevelopment

near the south entrance of the station in progress, we surveyed the

surroundings of this Tokyo hub station.


街 歩 きCity Walking Tours

Mar. 20, Jun.28, Oct.6











The city walking tours of 2006 were great reminders of

seaonal changes. In the cold of early spring, members set

off on a river tour to rediscover the sparkle along Tokyo’s

Nihonbashi and Kanda Rivers. Next, with hydrangeas in

full bloom, members experienced the illumination of these

flowers covering the Hakone hills from the comfort of a

dim train car. In the fall, the detectives had plans to stroll

through Japanese gardens by the light of a full harvest

moon, but a howling storm led us indoors to experience

the beauty of Japanese light inside traditional Japanese

architecture.
