ONE & ONLY AESTHESIS CHURCH, GLYFADA, GREECE
In the framework of the broader participation of the company BRIGHT SPECIALIST LIGHTING SA, in the One and Only Aesthesis project, the design of the lighting of the Church of the Nativity of the Virgin was also requested, which serves to cover ceremonies and gatherings that will be held on behalf of the visitors.
This project was a challenge as in religious places the right atmosphere is of major importance. The correct highlighting must refer to the lighting of the building and its recognition. Part of it was also the creation of a lighting scenario for the filming of ceremonies and gatherings of many visitors that will take place both inside and outside the church.
Apart from the functional part of the lighting, the aim was to render the sculpture of the building, to harmonize the lighting with the modern and minimalist style of the church and to interpret it differently compared to that of the day. Thus, folds of the building which during the day are shadowed, in the night image are illuminated giving the impression that the light is emanating from within. Inside, contrasts in brightness establish hierarchies, guide the visitor to spatial zones and emphasize important objects such as altars, statues, etc.
Avoiding glare and uncontrolled diffuse light is also important in order not to disturb the atmosphere, to ensure that faces are recognizable and to be able to read prayer books and hymns in the best possible way.
The austere architecture from the beginning dictated the integration of lighting into it, with the result that most of the luminaires are embedded in the floor and ceiling, but also meet with hidden lighting in the partitions of horizontal levels, stairs and the base of the building from the surrounding space. Built-in, almost invisible, the BRIGHT lamps make their presence discreet, in favor of their lighting effect. The focal light helps direct attention to key aspects of the room, such as the altar and architectural details.
The combination of the small scale and the strong curvature of the shell led to the selection of small-sized, low-wattage luminaires with many options in the range of mirror beams.
For the main and central lighting, a lamp was designed and produced by BRIGHT, which takes on the role of a modern chandelier with a basic geometric shape, indirectly and uniformly illuminates the dome, enhancing the perception of a protective and calm environment. On the underside of the luminaire are built-in sources of suitable intensity to provide the required levels of downward illumination.
In the outdoor area, web-based lighting fixtures of modern design and technology are installed to ensure a uniformly lit environment without glare effects. All the lights work with a DALI dimming system for the best control and effect. 
The lights in this project are, FUGA 2 RING SP SPOT, FAMA S GROUND, FAMA L GROUND, TERES M7 SQ SH 1F HEAVY, STELLA 6, COMIS OUT, FAMAL L OUT, FERUS 20 HPLED, ARIES WALL 2
