Architectural lighting works to foster the spatial experience. Lighting can influence mood, texture, spatial awareness and “exaggerate certain architectural features, provide intimacy, et cetera .”
“We often look for fixtures that can do the job of illuminating the space without becoming the headliner, [so that lighting doesn’t] overwhelm what else is going on in the room,” . “It [architectural lighting] has to perform in collaboration with the architecture. They can never be at odds aesthetically — they have to complement each other.”
This is what differentiates architectural from general lighting.
