Vivarea, located on a sprawling eight acres of development, contains a 31,500-square-meter podium level that boasts a variety of recreation and fitness activities and an extensive
landscape with specially designated areas for children, seniors, entertainment, and outdoor sports and health facilities. As a LEED registered residential project, our role in helping Vivarea capitalize on green technologies and design innovation was critical. The lighting design of the indoor and outdoor facilities of the pool, jacuzzi, and aqua gym have been carefully designed to create a serene environment. The spaces within the individual apartments have 3 types of lighting modes — relax, play, and daylight — to meet the inhabitants’ needs at any point in the day. DMX controls have been provided to control the light fixtures in these zones. The entrance lighting corresponds to the landscape lighting, creating a flow from exterior to interior. Beyond, the landscape glows with gems such as the pool – with its custom-shaped illuminated scoop niches – special in-ground lighting shaped to enhance views from above, and general navigational illumination bring a sense of visual order to the project.
