Re: Re: Pscological effects of lighting on retail design
Do you get an edit note on a thread title if you go back and edit it? (to put the ‘y’ into the ‘psychological’ of this one). It’s kind of irritating looking at this misspelling in the thread lists :rolleyes:
On more a serious note, I’ve noticed a rake of new Centras have opened around town in recent months – Westland Row, College Green, Wicklow Street, Merrion Row, Stephen’s Green…, and the volume of store lighting they’re using is even greater than ever before for convenience stores. They are nearly blinding when you walk in….and the light pollution that’s spilling onto the street…. I think the DCC planners are falling down here in their controlling of light volumes used, and especially as some or most of the shops would be in Protected Structures or located in Conservation Areas, where lighting should be in restrained and harmony with the character of the building/area. I think I will write a letter to DCC about it.
