Clinic by Suppose Design Office

“Instead of keeping places normally used for movement such as an elevator shaft or stair wells closed, we wanted to open them up to collect light, using them as lightwells to maintain the lighting coming in from above.

As light travels downward through the lightwells, exterior ‘bar graph’ like apertures maintain lighting on the lower levels, and gradually decrease in number towards the upper levels.

This lighting design, using the building’s positive-negative relationship between interior and exterior, makes uniform lighting on each floor possible.”
