Colour changing lighting opens a new realm of possibilities when it comes to facade and exterior illumination. In the past it was typically not feasible to include colour changing lighting in an architectural project do to the complexity of the equipment and nature of the technology.
Lamps traditionally used for facade illumination didn’t have the highest colour rendering ability and the heat from the lamps meant any filters used for colourful lighting would need to be very robust. Not to mention the mechanical means required for any kind of colour changing to take place, essentially ruling out any kind of performative lighting unless used in a specific context that demanded it.
Thanks to the advancements in LED lighting and colour changing technology, it is now easier and more affordable than ever before to incorporate colour changing lighting in a project, prestigious or otherwise.
