Varignano - Viareggio - Italy

  • CUSTOMER: Arcidiocesi di Lucca
  • PHOTOGRAPHER: Andrea Avezzù

Designed by TAMassociati, the parish complex in the Varignano district of Viareggio was conceived as a response to a community need. In synergy with the designers, the district and parishioners, the project envisaged the redevelopment of an existing building no longer suitable for pastoral and celebratory needs, while planning, on the same site, the construction of a new functional church able to retain the historical memory of the context

The new 1700 square meter complex is surrounded by green areas and the churchyard that contains the new bell tower. From the point of view of sustainability, the building guarantees excellent performance, both in terms of energy savings and in phase management maintenance.

The wide PERFORMANCE iN LIGHTING range has been able to meet the various lighting needs for both indoor and outdoor spaces ensuring high product quality standards, a carefully planned design to achieve the best possible visual comfort and a consistent attention to ensure low management costs combined with a great sensitivity to energy sustainability through the use LED fixtures.

Particular attention has been given to the interior lighting which immerses the visitor in an ocean of light upon entering the assembly hall. The illumination is created by the dialogue between the overhead light from the wide skylights and the lighting provided by NV414NL LED series recessed ceiling fixtures and SL764EB LED linear fixtures recessed in the plasterboard cladding of the transverse roof structure, integrating completely with the architecture. The careful choice of fixtures, the chromatic shade of the light and the opal diffusers makes it possible to obtain a correct visual comfort so as not to fatigue the eyesight of the faithful.

The immense stained-glass window (13m x 4.5m) which serves as a backdrop recalls the chromatic shade of Giotto’s Scrovegni chapel sky and creates a chromatic contrast with the neutral tones of the 4000 K light and the soft shades of the large room’s furnishings, focusing attention toward the presbytery. Externally, the window comes to life with light from professional GUELL flood lights of different sizes. 

For the meeting rooms, the multifunctional classrooms, the service areas and the rooms of the rectory located on the upper floor various types of fixtures provide efficient and correct lighting for each environment. DLSB220 LED and NV414LED fixtures provide general lighting, rectangular and round light panels are used for diffuse lighting and MIMIK and QUASAR series fixtures illuminate the walls. 

The exterior lighting of the complex is essential to enhance and showcase it in the surrounding environment. MIMIK 30 illuminates the perimeter walls of the ground floor, defining the architectural volumes through a refined balance between light and shadow. The upper walls of the large assembly hall are entirely illuminated with good uniformity with GUELL series flood lights that fill the surfaces with light.

The churchyard, the outdoor garden and the green areas close to the factory building are available to the neighbourhood as a community centre. For this reason, the lighting was planned for security in these areas with fixtures made for urban lighting such as SPILLO and THEOS MINI.
