The main entrance of a housing block at the Frederiklaan receives little direct sunlight. In order to compensate for this lack of sun, I decided to create the illusion of light and shadow.

On the floor I printed a combination of light projections that seem to emanate from the surrounding windows, as well as silhouetted renderings of inhabitants’ belongings and pets. From now on, it’s always sunny at the Frederiklaan.

The inhabitants are so pleased with the new entrance that they dressed it up with personal objects and often use it for celebrations.
