- Studio DL, responsible for lighting design during the Emmen project
In order to boost the city’s economy, generate employment and enhance its international role, Emmen City Center Renovation Project included a new lighting concept. One of the key challenges was achieving the transformation in a busy urban area within a very short timeframe. The project also devoted attention to the aesthetic image of the city at night. The idea was to create atmospheric public spaces for residents and visitors that would be more appealing to spend time in, and to give the city center a distinctive appearance at night.
