Corridor SkyCeiling at Grenoble School of Management, Grenoble, France

Transform Corridors with
Luminous SkyCeilings

Corridors are the life–stream of a building — ideally, their flow should be efficient, open and refreshing. But because of their confined spaces, lack of daylight and outside access, coupled with high traffic, corridors are ideal locations to apply the biophilic power of Sky Factory SkyCeilings.

Luminous SkyCeilings bring the refreshingly realistic presence and benefits of sunny skies, and a palpable sense of spatial relief, to people walking in these built environments.

Like our peripheral perception of real sky, we don't need to look up at a Luminous SkyCeiling to enjoy the benefits. Walking under a SkyCeiling makes you feel good, just like walking beneath a beautiful open sky.

SkyCeilings in traffic corridors are a memorable surprise — often becoming de facto wayfinding elements in large buildings. They create a pleasing daylight experience in the confines of deep interior spaces and, by serving the large numbers of people that use buildings' corridors, have a high cost/benefit ratio.
