Länsimetro Lighting Project in Helsinki/FI

The metro in the Helsinki metropolitan area is set to continue from Ruoholahti via Lauttasaari to Espoo. In the first phase, a rail line of 14 kilometres from Ruoholahti to Matinkylä will be completed including eight new stations. Koivusaari and Lauttasaari stations will be located in Helsinki, and Keilaniemi, Aalto University, Tapiola, Urheilupuisto, Niittykumpu, and Matinkylä will be located in Espoo.



The Matinkylä–Kivenlahti stretch of the west metro will be the next construction phase consisting of seven kilometres. New stations will be Finnoo, Kaitaa, Soukka, Espoonlahti, and Kivenlahti. The construction of the first phase of the west metro is completed since the end of 2015, and operation will begin in the autumn of 2016. The entire line from Matinkylä to Kivenlahti will be completed in 2020 at the earliest.



In this project of general lighting for public spaces using the LED floodlight mounted on the higher ceiling to uniformly illuminate the general circulation area. Odessa range of Ligman floodlight was installed to this project with a strict specifications coming from the lighting consultant to attain the requirements.


The concept is to achieve a spacious surrounding of Metro station by incorporating the indirect lighting mounted on the wall and directly uplight to enhance further brighter ceiling. Relying only on floodlight mounted on the slot of the ceiling and pointed downward will create a big contrast between ceiling and floor so the idea of indirect light was come-up to create well balance of lighting in overall surroundings.
