The project for the Agemar Headquarters by Linea Light Group’s lighting solutions

The building with a covering a total area of 30,000 square metres and a sinuous silhouette that evokes that of a fully lit up cruise ship, houses the new headquarters for the Anagel Group, the largest maritime company in Greece.

The building with a covering a total area of 30,000 square metres and a sinuous silhouette that evokes that of a fully lit up cruise ship, houses the new headquarters for the Anagel Group, the largest maritime company in Greece.

The challenge for the architectural firm and for the lighting designer was to produce the same perception of the volumes at every moment of the day. This was successfully achieved thanks to the Linea Light Group’s Paseo (customized for the project) and Twig luminaires, chosen by the Eleftheria Deko Lighting Design studio, which designed the lighting project.

 

Paseo is an extremely versatile linear bar suitable for different types of lighting. Both size and optics were customized for this particular project in order to emphasize the building's volumes and avoid glare; as a result, the products perfectly suit the irregular shape of the architecture and respond to the different requirements in terms of power.

The effect obtained thanks to the floor installation and the asymmetrical upward light emission is that of a reflected light that avoids both internal and external light spill, thereby reducing light pollution. 

Paseo was also chosen for the lighting of the entrance, where the 8° light beam emphasizes and enhances its architectural features.

 

Finally, the “sinuous floor stalks” of the Twig line were chosen for the garden area around the building. Their minimalist design, suitable for any space, creates evocative chiaroscuro effects in the vegetation that bring to mind the endless motion of sea waves. Available in three models (path- marker, bollard and pole) and two finishes, Twig is characterized by a high brightness LED SMD source protected by a frosted diffuser that guarantees optimized downwards light distribution without light spill.

 

Thanks to the LED technology of Linea Light Group solutions, the building was awarded the LEED Platinum certification.
