The inau­gu­ra­tion cere­mony of the water­front on the Huangpu River could hardly have been more spec­ta­cu­lar. To coin­cide with its ope­ning on 31st Decem­ber 2018, there was sno­w­fall in Shan­ghai, the rare white blan­ket pro­vi­ding an extra touch of gloss to this fre­shly land­sca­ped park – much to the delight of the resi­dents in the Chi­nese metro­po­lis. Using Olivio system lumi­nai­res, the reser­ved lighting sets visual accents, while at the same time tur­ning the water­front into an enti­cing space for adven­ture and rela­xa­tion, both by day and night.

The goal was to find the best way to revi­ta­lise the eastern water­front along the Huangpu River. The vision for the water­front bet­ween the Yangpu Bridge in the North of Shan­ghai and the Xupu Bridge in the south, 45 km long in total, was to create a ver­sa­tile, sustai­na­ble public green­space that remains attrac­tive wha­te­ver the season. Impor­tant objec­ti­ves of its usage con­cept were to fur­ther the health and well-being of citi­zens and enrich their lives by offe­ring oppor­tu­ni­ties for sport, games and simply sojour­ning in the fresh air.

Feel-good ambience, light qua­lity and effi­ciency are the cri­te­ria pur­sued by the lighting solu­tion here, com­pri­sing Olivio system lumi­nai­res across a 21 km long sec­tion of the water­front known as The East Bund. With its orga­nic floral shape, the Olivio blends har­mo­niou­sly into the sur­roun­ding envi­ron­ment, sup­ple­men­ting the land­scape plan­ning by set­ting reser­ved yet distinc­tive lighting accents. Paths and squa­res are lined with 3.5 m or 4.5 m pole-top lumi­nai­res from the Olivio Can­de­la­bra series equip­ped with one or two Olivio Medio LED lumi­naire heads, depen­ding on the size of the area. From squa­res deco­ra­ted with ben­ches to cycle paths con­nec­ting the newly land­sca­ped park to the city centre, the Olivio lumi­naire system is deployed here fle­xi­bly in a highly diverse range of lighting situa­tions along the newly desi­gned water­front. Rota­tion-sym­me­tri­cal, wide-bea­ming reflec­tors ensure soft light, pro­vi­ding an invi­ting atmo­sphere for visi­tors and ensu­ring safety while jog­ging, cycling, wal­king or simply sojour­ning in the park. A colour tem­pe­ra­ture of 3000K and CRI 80 also help enli­ven the expe­rience of this urban water­front land­scape at night­time.
