For all involved in the project, it was a bal­anc­ing act that was a chal­lenge in every way: how to create dig­ni­fied con­di­tions for addicts in Bergen’s urban area? In plan­ning this refuge, the land­scape archi­tects at Nor­con­sult went for a bal­ance between screen­ing and vis­i­bil­ity, ensur­ing both the users of the facil­ity and the town’s inhab­i­tants were taken into account.

As a result, the Strax roof ter­race is a place of dis­tinc­tion. The warm colors and nat­ural mate­ri­als com­mu­ni­cate more con­fi­dence and safety than shabby under­passes or unlit parks – with light­ing han­dled by the Olivio family of system lumi­naires via its Flo­racion design line. Each of the three sun­shine yellow poles with a grey inlay con­tains four Grande-sized LED lumi­naire heads in the same yellow color. Intel­li­gent con­trol, as well as tol­er­ance, are pro­vided by the Philips City­Touch tele­m­an­age­ment system – an impor­tant con­tri­bu­tion to the effi­ciency and sus­tain­abil­ity of this Nor­we­gian city.

  • The organic design of Olivio and its functional versatility due to the modular design of this luminaire family is inspired by role models from nature. As a result Olivio forms the basis for light concepts in urban living areas where the focus is on the well-being of people. Olivio luminaire heads are available in the sizes Grande, Medio and Piccolo and can be combined with various arms and pole types from the three design lines Sistema, Floracion and Candelabra. Yet it is not just the design that can be adapted individually according to the situation – various optics and light colours from 2,700 to 4,000 Kelvin also cater for challenging lighting tasks efficiently and without glare: from illumination of paths and squares, floodlighting of façades and accent lighting of buildings. The new Olivio Cap also reduces light scatter and for special requirements, with its camera and loudspeaker modules, Olivio can be integrated into smart application scene. The special wooden-pole aesthetic emphasizes the Olivio's high quality, organic luminaire design. Combined with luminaire heads in a harmonoius colour tone such as bronze, this results in a timelessly comforting spatial ambience.
