Illumination of the new headquarters of the Antwerp Port Authority

For the new headquarters of the Antwerp Port Authority Zaha Hadid Architects have added a glass structure on top of a listed former fire station. The way the light interacts with the expressive architecture is truly elegant. At the heart of this special lighting system are LED Light Engines and LED Drivers from Tridonic.

Flexible LED technology for tailor-made strip lights

The extension for the Havenhuis features a wealth of unconventional details such as free-form floor plans for walkways, offices and meeting zones, angled pillars and walls, and curved stairways, galleries and coving. The profiles integrated in the ceilings for office lighting therefore had to meet very different structural requirements.

Multiline, the Belgian luminaire manufacturer, developed a special solution to this problem. It equipped the tailor-made profiles with Tridonic’s LLE-G3-24 modules and associated LED Drivers. The LLE linear LED light engines are available in lengths of 140 mm, 280 mm and 560 mm. They can be easily combined depending on the different profile lengths and also allow other technical systems, such as smoke detectors, to be integrated with a high degree of flexibility.

Presence sensors and ambient light sensors ensure that the light in the Havenhuis is controlled to suit demand at all times. Both types of sensor communicate via DALI with the LED Drivers which Tridonic supplies for its LED light engines. LCAI 35W and LCAI 65W are used in the Havenhuis in Antwerp.LED modules and LED Drivers for the Havenhuis
