westend palais, frankfurt a.m.

The lightening of the special layered facade structure in the evening hours and at night emphasizes the effect of depth and turns it into a spatial experience. Coming through the entrance portal you are passing the back-lit pillars which create an impressive effect. The slightly illuminated arch leads the visitor into the foyer.
The accentuation of the middle risalith by day continues consequently at night: the visual effect of the front part, the baluster of the balconies, is being created by narrow LED light lines.
The gentle tongues of light in the barrel vault allegorize the balusters and figures, which rise against the sky like subtle pinnacles at historical buildings.
