Application Auditoria Classrooms General education area’s
How to maintain architectural heritage while bringing it to nowadays LED standards? That was the challenge while renovating the lighting of the Utrecht University Educatorium, designed by Rem Koolhaas from OMA Architects. The building – completed in 1995 - houses 2 auditoria and 3 examination rooms, among others. Starting in 2020, the lighting in the Educatorium was renovated to comply with new requirements. To foster an optimal learning environment, the university demands an illuminance level of 750 lux in all examination rooms and auditoriums.
The use of several different ETAP ranges allowed to meet the illumination requirements and reinforce the distinct design of the different spaces at the same time.
To ensure not only a pleasant but also a safe learning environment, K9 signage luminaires are used throughout the building. With its minimalistic design, K9 integrates nicely in the different spaces. The emergency lighting is connected to an ESM wireless system to easily keep an overview of the status of the emergency luminaires.
