Lighting design for a new administration wing.


Myouchikai Annex

Exterior lighting at the Annex, combined with the lighting of the temple, is used for special occasions and extends a welcoming gesture to the main road. Low-voltage, adjustable custom fixtures are embedded in green granite at the base of the Annex building. The fixtures create dramatic shadows and bring out the hammered texture of the stone well.
