The canteen is located at the campus of Technical University of Denmark (DTU) in Lyngby, north of Copenhagen. The client had a clear vision that the canteen should be more than just a canteen open for a couple of hours daily during lunch time. 
Apart from serving its main function, it was also requirement that the canteen can be efficiently transformed into: a meeting room, a representative multipurpose space where VIP guests can be welcomed, a place where students can study in a more relaxed ambience, an evening lounge bar or a space for similar university social life arrangements. 
The lighting concept has been created around the idea of different lighting presets for different activities. In order to meet this goal, a dynamic lighting installation was implemented. The result is a lighting installation with predefined lighting scenes. Each of these scenes are customized for different functions which are defined by the client. A luminous, colour-changing wall is another essential part of the concept, as it dominates the visual experience and emphasizes the building's transparency. The wall's hues, luminous intensity and the speed of the colour changes are defined in the light scenes. 
The entire lighting installation has been made with state-of-the-art LED fittings, which also underlines DTU's identity as a leading Danish research institution.  The lighting is controlled from the central console via a user-friendly control system.
