Schevenin­gen boasts one of the most beau­ti­ful beaches in the Nether­lands. Nature and big city living come head to head here – with all the poten­tial and prob­lems that entails. The sea­side resort, part of The Hague, is sit­u­ated around 50 km to the south-west of Ams­ter­dam and sits right at the centre of the extremely highly densely pop­u­lated »Rand­stad« mega­lopo­lis that is home to over 8 mil­lion people. The Hague is exper­i­ment­ing with the county’s first »Living Lab« project, with inno­v­a­tive »Smart City Hubs« that are look­ing at how smart tech­nolo­gies can make cities more intel­li­gent, and how these tech­nol- ogies can be inte­grated into urban fur­nish­ings in a way that brings the beauty and appeal of the nat­ural sur­round­ings back into the fore­front. As part of the project, the first Lif lumi­naire columns were erected on the redesigned Noorder­boule­vard – as strate­gic sup­port points for an inte­grated smart city infra­struc­ture.

A mobile waste bin on a boule­vard? A self-dri­ving shut­tle bus to trans­port vis­i­tors? A robot that resem­bles a moon buggy and col­lects rub­bish from the beach? In Schevenin­gen, sce­nar­ios like this are not a vision of the future, they are the result of a Living Lab project: intel­li­gent tech­nolo­gies are being applied to address the cur­rent chal­lenges of a big city with intel­li­gent solu­tions.

Adap­tively equipped mod­u­lar Lif system lumi­naires are being used as strate­gic sup­port points for this smart tech­nol­ogy. Spe­cial record­ing devices in these posts allow vary­ing func­tions to be inte­grated, such as a Cyrb micro­phone: it recog­nises vehi­cles moving along the prom­e­nade when they shouldn’t be and alerts the police or the public order author­i­ties. Acoustic mon­i­tor­ing is also able to iden­tify sounds such as break­ing glass, verbal alter­ca­tions and shouts. The light poles will soon also mea­sure air qual­ity and vis­i­tor num­bers.

In design­ing the light­ing con­cept, the plan­ners focused on envi­ron­men­tally com­pat­i­ble light­ing to respond equally to the needs of people and of nature. The Lif top ele­ment and Twinspot module handle the tra­di­tional light­ing tasks of gen­eral illu­mi­na­tion and accent light­ing. The top ele­ment lights up the boule­vard in an even light. The mod­i­fied Twinspot mod­ules allow the light points to be switched on or off and con­trolled as needed via the Remoti­com tele­m­an­age­ment system. Addi­tional spe­cial fea­tures of the lumi­naires include their coat­ing and colour: ref­er­enc­ing the colours of the North Sea, Lif is fin­ished in a project-spe­cific light grey var­nish. The var­nish on the columns is resis­tant to sea­wa­ter (C4) and has a spe­cial anti-sticker coat­ing.

The smart light­ing, as part of the »Living Lab«, thus allows vis­i­tors to the Noorder­boule­vard to enjoy the unique expe­ri­ence of the merg­ing of wild nature and urban living com­fort­ably and safely.

  • Cities are lively, vibrant places that are always in motion. Changes in use within communal spaces or multi-functional concepts are transforming urban spaces and with it, the requirements for lighting. As a modular system luminaire in the shape of a slim, cylindrical light column, Lif provides full freedom for the creation of light settings in urban spaces and the smart implementation of these using networked functions. More flexible than any other luminaire, it adapts itself to the widest variety of urban lighting tasks. By day, Lif occupies a reserved role in the cityscape but it is during darkness that it demonstrates its true versatility – depending on the configuration, it can be transformed into a luminaire for squares or pathways, an accent light, or even all of these at once, while at all times remaining a minimalist light column. Lighting tools like the pathway module or the Gobo projector for eyecatching projection effects expand and enhance the scope of planning. New spacer elements in four heights perfectly complement the versatile configuration options of Lif, while smart components like a loudspeaker module, camera, or WiFi element make this light column a key element in smart cities.
