Griven luminaires light up Hod HaSharon synagogue

Published: WORSHIP

ISRAEL: Supplied by Israeli company General Electric Engineering AEG LTD, a selection of Griven LED luminaires were recently installed at the synagogue of Hod HaSharon, located in the main square of Magdiel.

A new LED lighting system was required by Hod HaSharon municipality, and the appointed lighting consultants were tasked with developing an innovative illumination scheme involving the synagogue and the surrounding square and garden that would ‘spread a feeling of calm and quietness through a skilful use of a well distributed illumination’. Soft touches of cold, white light were required to enhance building, trees and pathways, whilst a geometrical design was required to create light contrast between the synagogue and its surroundings, all the while maintaining a decent overall illumination level.

After successfully passing demanding quality tests, a number of Griven LED luminaires were chosen for this project. The square’s main lighting now comes from specifically designed benches and low walls that feature one Griven Parade D-W-5 Recessed unit each, an exterior linear LED module fitted with five white-light LED sources, specifically designed for recessed use in pedestrian areas. While the standard version comes with medium or wall wash optics for direct wall illumination, for this project optional elliptical optics were strongly recommended by the appointed lighting designers in order to obtain low glare and wide diffused elliptical beams on the pavement of the courtyard.

In order to reinforce the quiet atmosphere, the palm trees of the garden were lit up by a number of Dune W MK2 white-light LED fixtures. Various units of Parade D-W-5 Recessed units were embedded in the pavement close to the access ways in order to maintain a discreet illumination level without creating a deep contrast between the front side of the building and its surroundings. However the other sides of the synagogue have been wall washed up to the lower cornice, enhanced by a cold, white light with the help of 17 units of Parade S-W-40 LED bars.

In total, the synagogue was equipped with 29 AL1679 Parade D-W-5 Recessed cold white ellipticals, four AL2334 Dune MK2 cold white narrow units, eight AL2336 Dune MK2 Cold white medium fixtures, and 17 AL3122 Parade S-W-40 cold white elliptical wide units.
