Meydan Avenue Canal Front

LOCATION: Dubai, UAE
USE: Residential - Commercial - Leisure
SCOPE: FaÇade & Landscape LIGHTING DESIGN
YEAR: 2016

At a macro-perspective:

Our lighting design masterplan progresses holistically from a general set of lighting design criteria and principles; carefully crafted based upon the overall urban and architectural settings across site, through to their pragmatic application on smaller scale layouts. UMAYA’s lighting masterplan delivers a comprehensive approach resulting in a sustainable visual outcome, which takes into account the diverse aesthetical, functional and environmental needs of the project.

On a micro-level:

Indirect Linear LED sources delineate the perimeter of planter boxes as well as the under-sides of benches, thereby resulting in a ‘guiding light’ that visitors can use from the pathway leading to the Canal Front Promenade area.

‘Graffiti Lighting’ systems were specified through the pathway by way of gobo-projector mounted on trees, thereby resulting in a unique pedestrian lighting experience tailor-made for the Meydan residency component.

Through the use of custom-designed LED luminous tiles recessed into the pavement, a bespoke visual guide was designed in order to highlight the main entrances of the residential buildings. These LED tiles are etched with preset building codes/numbers in such a way that further differentiates the project’s lighting identity. The tiles were specified randomly in such a way that the quantity increases the closer they are to building entrances, thus becoming a night-time visual guide for visitors and tenants alike.
