The Gotic St.Anna church in Davensberg lighted up with Doctus 1

A permanent lighting project was recently completed for the Roman Catholic Church of Saint Anna in the Davensberg district. The aim was to underline the shapes and structure of this historical house of worship (Belongs to Bistum Münster).

The late Gothic castle chapel as an original building was inaugurated on 13 January 1510 and received an extension in 1973-74 by the architect Manfred Ludes of Dorsten. The church is the oldest monument of Davensberg and this year, thanks to government support and private donors, a lighting project was launched with the aim of embellishing and highlighting the structure of the nine spans of the church and the clock tower.

The client’s needs were very clear: to emphasize the structure with discreet, efficient and well-integrated lighting fixtures. In order to avoid vandalism, it was decided with the designer to install the lights close to the gutters. This strategic positioning has made it possible to optimize the lighting which, in addition to light up the masonry, also diffuses part of the perimeter walkway thanks to a medium flood lens.

The Lightconcept company, in charge of the set-up, chose Doctus 1 projectors by the Italian company DTS Illuminazione, distributed in Germany by BT.Innotec.
The compact and discreet projectors were made with a dark finish, in order to best adapt to the historic monument (also in compliance with the regulations of the competent authorities).
The installation was completed with Drivenet 28 EZ, DTS’s proprietary LED driver that allows, along with a lighting controller, complete management of the color and light dimmer of all projectors installed.
