The linear site housing Cyber Hub in Gurgaon has multiple entrances and viewing points. It was critical to create definite visual nodes for visitor orientation and collection that would then be connected by a lighting tapestry, creating a visually clean and crisp environment at night. The excitement of the store fronts will then lend an organic growth pattern to the site — combining the rigor of a well-planned night-time urban environment with the flavors of a local souk or bazaar — and resulting in a great architectural project that augments the sense of community and civic pride.
The visual drivers that we generated in conjunction with Paul Friedberg, the Landscape Architect on this project, emanated from a deep desire to redefine the paradigm of public lighting, whereby lighting and landscape are able to provide a harmonious, clear and crisp rendition of the visual field. Providing visual wayfinding cues, tying in the signage and circulation in a controlled manner, providing areas of visual vibrancy, and connecting biophilic patterns with lighting helped to create a very successful destination in the National Capital Region of India.
