The audience area, was created to deliver utmost comfort to all visitors of the events. These comfortable conditions were supported by the different sized screens placed in the area. In addition to all of these details in the internal design, the design of the lighting has an important role in the identity of the venue. The lighting requirements for ideal comfort and use were calculated based on the requirements of the venue and the architectural expectations, and the fixtures were selected accordingly. All lighting fixtures in the venue are connected to an electronic lighting control system, and various scenarios were identified in the system to provide different color and duration options for different purposes.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
All work was performed at a site of 800 square meters in accordance with the weekly plan provided by the building’s management, given that the building was already in operation and the project was applied within a period of two months.
