SHELTERED RESIDENCE

The installation counts corridors, common areas as well as the staff´s room. LIGHTCARE.

The installation counts corridors, common areas and staff rooms on Krogen 5. Leader Ann-Tina Martinussen is to bring all 12 homes, as well as the second group of the settlement unit, so that all 12 young people aged 18-30 years get a full dynamic light 24/7 that meets the right light at the right time and place.

The installation consists of architectonic recessed luminaries type BASIC-A1 in the corridors and in common areas.

The fully automatic full dynamic circadian lighting is validated by scientists and modified by the feedback from the employees. It includes scenarios for relaxing in the tv-room in a greenish tone as well as free-from-blue night light, so the residents maintain a stable circadian rhythm and sleep pattern, while the staff can do their evening and night tasks.

The solution was CARE-COMPLETE which includes: Tuneable white, red, green, and blue LED which among other things can make lighting scenarios varying from candle light to blue sky (1.200K-12.000K), therapy boost, calming sensory and snoezel scenarios by means of the 16,7 million colour combinations. It all comes with a user-friendly touchscreen universe with the possibility for operation and over-steering via press several places.
