Green Content: Greenspotlight

In the Jan van Lieshoutstraat in Eindhoven (NL) - a mainly pedestrian street adjacent to a shopping mall - BYTR suggested that public space be cleared of lampposts and small planters, which were forming obstacles. The design - called the GREENSPOTLIGHT - combines these two elements, greenery and street lighting, into one integrated design: a special green public light where living plants form the shade. In the bottom of the shade, a ring of integrated planters are situated. The lights are hung from cables between the street walls. This low-key intervention raised the quality of the street from a back alley to a shopping street.
