Inspired by the traditional light of the local Bedouin. Simple, warm, and elegant
lighting implies the warmth of Bedouin traditional light. The lighting concept is to
catch the warmth of Bedouin tent and try to highlight the characteristics of
middle eastern buildings such as thick wall columns and tones of colors that tend
to be warm. "Authentic" Clean and modern types of lighting methods help to
reveal the authenticity of middle east style architecture (-to make it bold) by
applying warm colors and soft light to the building's facade so that it looks
luxurious. "Depth" the distance from the front to the back of something. Depth
will help our eyes to define levels of the space by enhance the thickness of the
walls or columns with lighting.
