The Atrium light feature

..the hanging panels echo the etched rock viens of the entrance glazing.

Each panel changes subtly through a cycle of colour, which is part of an overall spectrum from blue (cold) to hot (yellow / orange).

The panel that indicates the current temperature is recognized due to it being off-white and static. The temperature level is written on each panel in Celsius and represents the starting degree of a 3-degree temperature band.

The feature consumes less power than a 100 watt lightbulb to generate the LED lighting cycles
