Customer challenge

 

The owners of P-Hämppi wanted to make a car park with a difference. They needed lighting that would make the area comfortable, spacious, and easy to use. The lighting also had to be bright enough to illuminate the car registration plates, which are logged by camera. Could LED help?

The right lighting 


Measuring 650 metres long and spaced over two floors, the garage presented some unique opportunities for decorative and functional lighting. The owners were also interested in using environmentally-friendly LED lighting. As a result, Philips set about installing ColorGraze PowerCore and eW Graze Powercore fixtures around the building, creating enjoyable indirect lighting effects.

 

"We wanted to create an experience of indirect lighting and a cavernous arched hall” says Timo Meuronen from Aihio-arkkitehdit, the architect involved in the project. “On another level, the different coloured lights impart memories on the human mind helping to recall where a vehicle has been left”.

 

The new lights create a unique atmosphere that is a joy to enter, and which makes it easy for motorists to remember where they parked their call. In addition, the lighting meets functional requirements, as the camera system is able to log car registration plates. Lastly, the Ethernet-based Light System Manager monitors movement in the garage and adjusts light levels when people are present.

 

P-Hämppi is the first completely LED-lit multi-storey car park in Europe. Making the move to energy-efficient car parking lighting has resulted in significant savings.
