Do you know the 6 kinds of walls lighting styles?
About lighting styles
"Lighting styles" reference on the concept of "style" in architecture. The same "illumination object" can show different light and dark effects, correspondingly, the corresponding "lighting method" should be adopted, or some more details of corresponding "work" .
"Lighting style" can facilitate the architect and the owner to understand the lighting effect, and it is convenient to understand the other characteristics of the lighting effect besides "lighting a little darker".
The “lighting style” removes the question of “what it is” and “how to achieve it”. The former is used for communication with architects and owners, and the latter is used for technical engineers. "Lighting style" is not only a lighting factor, but also a result of the combination of lighting and object materials.
The "lighting style" also carries the possibility of "componentizing" the lighting. It is entirely possible for some commonly used "lighting patterns" to precipitate a standardized approach. One of the advantages of this is that in the future, some lighting design creations are entirely possible to provide several solutions quickly by means of modular replacement, thus saving the energy of lighting design. It not only reduces the threshold of lighting design, but also puts more energy into innovative creation.
The "lighting style" discussed here is a brick that throws bricks and jade. There are many teachers in the lighting industry who have accumulated experience in the system. If the reader has the opportunity to get to know it, it will definitely benefit.
Wall lighting pattern
Walls or facades are a very important element in architectural space. The reason why it is said here is that the space that people feel in space and the perception of the size of the space come from the visual observation of the opposite. When a person is in a space, "he sees the most is the wall", the facade often occupies the largest area of the human vision. The light and darkness of the facade directly affects whether people feel bright or dark about this space.

▲This is a very common lighting style, the downlights form an arch-like shape on the wall
The downlights can also be evenly arranged above the space to provide illumination for the entire space, and the row of lights near the wall has the greatest impact on the wall.
The "arch" curvature is affected by the beam angle of the luminaire; the height of the dark part of the "arch" is related to the distance of the luminaire from the wall; the distance between the luminaires determines the "arch" and "arch" the distance.

▲This is another common lighting style, which is often the case when using a ceiling light trough close to the wall.
Unlike the previous lighting style, the wall is high in position and has no rhythm in the horizontal direction but is uniform. Contrary to the case where the upper part of the upper part is brighter, the upper part of the façade is brighter and the bottom part is darker. The sky is bright and the earth is dark. People have such a subconscious mind about the natural light.

Sometimes we will arrange the lights near the facade and increase the number of lights, expecting the entire wall to be more uniform. This is an area where you need to pay attention to the highlights that often appear particularly bright in the high part. Due to the presence of highlights, the lower half of the facade appears dark. This is because the beam angle of the luminaire is large and can be appropriately reduced to a suitable beam angle.

▲ narrow angle of light can illuminate farther distances
The reduction in beam angle distributes more light to the area at the bottom of the façade that is further from the lamp. This reduces the bright areas of the upper part and increases the dark areas of the bottom.

The wall is evenly oriented both horizontally and vertically. At this time, the wall is simply perceived as a whole, and there is no longer an impression of the shape of the spot.
This is achieved by a linear wall washer near the wall. The line type wall washer is actually a small row of light beads arranged in a row. The light from each lamp is similar to the narrow angle above, and is specially proofread so that it can illuminate the bottom of the facade and the top is not exposed. Moreover, the light coming out between the left and right particles can be staggered and complemented uniformly, which is formed on the entire façade, and the horizontal and vertical are uniform.

Another way to get very uniform is to use a downlight called a wall washer. The light that this lamp shines is not the downward cone, but the side that is biased toward the wall. However, special care should be taken when using it. The distance from the lamp to the wall depends on the height of the wall, and the spacing of the lamps depends on the distance from the lamp to the wall.
to sum up
The above lighting patterns are only a shallow discussion of the lighting effects of the façade and the corresponding lighting methods. In addition to the relationship between light and dark, in practical applications, special consideration should be given to the texture of the façade and the division of the color texture. For example, the shadow of the masonry wall texture and the reflected light of the glass stone mirror are all important factors to be investigated.
