Lighting Design 

In order to express the old culture atmosphere, the pathway guide lights were installed on the original train interchanger to keep the railway image. These light fittings are featured with low light pollution design. The 360-degree diffuser and light guide plate can not only enhance the range of illumination, but also shelter 85% of discomfort glares. Therefore, light can be directed to the ground and enhance the ground luminance,which provides safer place for citizens and cyclists. The design has transformed the unique Kaohsiung Harbor Railway Station culture into a great tourism spot.
