Light for orientation
A hospital entrance usually has a staffed service counter so that the visitor feels welcome and confident that they will find their way in the hospital. By highlighting the service counter using light, it is easy to find and feels welcoming and inviting.
Lighting can also be used to define separate areas for waiting, reflection and conversation.
Light for experience
The entrance usually has a higher ceiling, allowing the lighting designer to work with several tools to create the welcoming space that we expect. Artwork is often accentuated using light, and suspended luminaires in various clusters create their own sculptures of light for visitors to look at while they are waiting.
