CHÂLONS-EN-CHAMPAGNE – Saint-Étienne Cathedral


Illumination architecturale de la cathédrale

Architecture, Patrimony

The architectural illumination of this building is based on a lighting integrated into the architecture, out of the field of vision. Every type of architectural elements corresponds a luminous treatment different and special. The light rises and intensifies from the ground recessed at the foot of the building to the light fixtures on the lower sides or behind the balusters on the roof, revealing the tip of the arrows in distant vision, without impairing the perception of details in base part in near vision. Camera spotlights reveal the towers, the transept and the roof of the choir in a unique shade of warm and quality light.
