The structure of the "MY.B" facade, with the building's striking soffits and length, led to the idea of illuminating the facade using laser projection.
The soffits stick out as the prominent structural feature of the building's form and serve as the perfect backdrop for the glancing views along the front. The dynamic of the commuters coming into the city in the morning and leaving in the evenings going northward can be experienced in the similar movement of the light.
The newest generation of laser technology and automation are used on the "MY.B" building.
Depending on the situation, the lighting can vary between restrained static motifs and very dynamic geometries with long-distance effects.
The system consists of two laser projectors that are integrated into bespoke outdoor cases that have been mounted on the upper section of the columns.
Power consumption is about 90 to 150 Watts max. per projector, which is, for this specific use, about 50% below the requirements for LEED Gold or Platinum Certification and can therefore be considered as the most energy-efficient facade lighting.
