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.
