Agora Modiano is an architectural monument that was originally designed by Eli Modiano. The renovation of Agora Modiano was commissioned to the Architectural Design studio SPARCH.

The lighting design of Agora Modiano, a monument that is inextricably linked with the concept of time, follows the principles of lighting Monuments and Historic Buildings.

Our main concern was, following the intention of the architect Mr. Morfos Papanikolaou, to keep the character of the building as unchanged as possible. Not to be “injured” by the lighting bodies, the shell of the building, as we would do with the skin of a living organism.

The lighting of the two façades was a project that required great care in order to keep its originality. In addition to our aesthetic and emotional approach, we wanted and designed a functional lighting, both during the day and at night!

The two facades/entrances of the Agora are very distinctive and highly visible to passers-by. Highlighting them for the night hours, in a modern way, which would not interfere with the style of the building, was a challenge. For the roof of the building, a roof of a particular architecture, we chose a soft, uniform and discreet lighting as if we wanted to honour Eli Modianos, painting a fugue with light…

The permeability and extroverted nature of the building are 2 very important elements that must be emphasized through lighting. This is enhanced by the lighting of the facade glazing. The metallic coronation, ‘royal’ type, seems to be floating. This is an element that should be enhanced through lighting. For this reason, lamps with special technical characteristics were proposed that will be placed in such a way that they are not visible as bodies, but only as a lighting effect.

At the back of our minds, we wanted lighting that would bring the whole neighborhood to life, bringing it back to another era that would make it commercial and creative in the mornings, safe and romantic in the evenings!
