Stadtkirche St. Marien, Altlandsberg

The parish church of St. Mary is located in Altlandsberg, Brandenburg, near Berlin. The new lighting, as a clearly recognizable new and integrative component of the overall renovation concept, blends gently into the appearance of the church without changing its character.

The special lighting was designed in coordination with the architect and the monument protection in a simple, deliberately restrained design language.

The ring-shaped profiled chandelier is the central element of the lighting of the central nave. The twelve spotlights arranged in a ring can be aligned and separately switched and dimmed. They enable accentuated lighting and can be optimally adapted to the respective requirements at events. The indirect light component illuminates the star-shaped vault of the central nave and provides uniform ambient lighting. The cylindrical ceiling canopy, designed as a luminaire, integrates four adjustable spotlights that serve to illuminate the pulpit and the stage area. The element of the cylindrical luminaire with four movable spotlights was also used for the side aisles as well as the choir. In the case of the luminaires designed by the planners, special focus was placed on ensuring that they blend harmoniously into their surroundings despite their modern design. Light bands integrated into the capitals complement the illumination of the side aisles. The entire lighting system can be individually controlled via a DMX console. This allows the light to be dynamically controlled during a concert and adapted to the changing scenes.
