The lighting project of Victoria Grande Fortress in Melilla, North Africa, edited by Francisco Javier Gorriz Sanchez from the Spanish design studio DCI, stood out among the 140 representatives from academia, business and professional world, winning the first prize in the Lighting Designer category at the third edition of Codega Awards, the recognition of the excellences of Lighting Design assigned to the best LED Lighting Design solutions, within the splendid location of Ca’ Zen in Venice.
The project’s success is the result of a careful application of LED technologies in a place with high historical value, using an artistic interpretation, performed with only light effects.
The perimeter of the historic fort is illuminated by colorful warm tones, designed to enhance the surface and create the atmosphere within the walls.
The Xenia by Linea Light Group have been used to integrate perfectly to the architecture and do not interfere with the view of the space.
The three different LED colors have also to recreate the effect of the fire that lights up, making the Victoria Grande Fortress a highly evocative place.
This approach emphasizes a note of strong boost to innovation and reinterpretation of a cultural, declaring a courageous design and a domain of “light material”.
