The area around Wessels Plass has a high status and a strong identity surrounded of the Storting and beautiful historic buildings. The facades are richly decorated and the buildings have great shops. Open ground floors along Akersgata draw attention. Timeless elegance in both interior and exterior are key words.
The lighting enhances the identity that expresses historical status. The design helps to create a special and pleasant atmosphere that is elegant, clear and with high quality in material selection and light quality. The main element for lighting are glowing lanterns placed in the row of trees around the square, which provides light both to the streets and towards the square.
The lanterns frame and enclose the space. They create a visual and conceptual connection with the historic lanterns outside the National Theater and the lanterns at Bankplassen.
