Facade and Landscape Lighting

The Al Janoub Stadium, which was one of the stadiums that hosted Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup games, was inspired by the local dhow boats and the rich maritime heritage of Qatar, to reflect the cultural significance of its location within the coastal city of Al Wakrah.

The lighting design concept focused on overcoming a significant technological task. By maintaining the cleanliness of the architecture and emphasizing its curves, a solution that will provide uniform lighting had to be achieved across the façade to ensure a captivating visual effect. The layers of the exterior shell were reflected in the lighting by appropriately directing projectors across the façade.

To illuminate the entire project, 313 columns and 1090 luminaires were used, a model that also appeals to energy efficiency with independent high transparency lenses. And for the columns, to provide the intended luminous feeling, different heights ranging from 5 m to 16.2 m were installed. Basic principles of lighting the outdoor area were closely examined, and the appropriate lux level was provided to the practice courts to ensure that they did not interfere with the light level in the relaxed pedestrian areas around the stadium.

An appropriate lighting scheme was implemented by reintegrating linear lighting into the balustrades to guarantee strong lights for a sense of security. A small detail that is an eye-catching feature, accentuating its architectural lines, and creating a visually appealing and inviting environment

Step lighting was added for the running tracks, a feature that enhances visibility and ensures that users can navigate the area with ease. Several factors were taken into consideration for the track layout, such as compliance with lighting standards and regulations as well as optimal placement and visual appeal.
