Sony Center

An overall lighting scheme unifies the office, residential, commercial, and public spaces as well as the façade. In the daytime, light emphasizes the building’s transparency, while at night, light intensifies the reflective quality of glass. Lighting further compliments the architecture’s high-tech vocabulary, by exposing such elements as nuts and bolts.
