Facades and entrances
Along the facades on the main street, there may be both residential entrances as well as entrances to restaurants and shops. The areas around the entrances of various kinds should be well lit. At the same time, lighting should be designed in such a way that it does not cause glare.
Using wall luminaires along the facades around the street is a good option. Lighting with street optics can be a good choice if the light is directed downward. An omnidirectional wall light even throws light on the facade behind.
In smaller urban streets with shops, the light radiating from the storefronts can be just enough. Since there are residential floors above the stores it is good if lighting at higher altitudes are avoided in such environments.
Post top lighting
A post top luminaires spreads light over large areas and is well suited for general lighting in the street and sidewalk. In addition to the posts a little more pronounced lighting can be used via bollards. Using the light from the bollard level differences can be highlighted, making the environment more easily navigable
