Thye Hua Kwan Temple

Thye Hua Kwa temple is a multi-religious temple that houses Buddhist,Taoist and Confucian deities. The intention of the space is to promote dialogue between all religions for harmony and understanding.

In this lighting design scheme, the concept was borrowed from the religious connection with candlelight and the gentleness of the moonlight. By using LED with warm and diffuse light, the edifice itself acquired a relaxing and calm nature. Directional light draws our attention on the sharp corners of the roof, the lifting tilt ridges of the sweeping tiled roofs, one of the main roof typologies found in Chinese Architecture. On the interior, indirect light was used on the prayer halls to create visual comfort to the visiting prayers. To highlight the deity sculptures, museum lighting techniques were used.
