Sky Restelo is located in one of the most prestigious districts of Lisbon and stands out from its surroundings for its excellent architecture and use of maintenance-free materials, mainly glass and aluminium. The exceptional construction quality of the building is evident at first sight. It offers residents and visitors an unparalleled view of Lisbon and beyond.

The tower has set new standards not only for its architecture but also for the high-quality technology throughout the building. The 17-storey tower contains 42 apartments with four or more bedrooms. The interior furnishings are all high-quality materials, and electronic systems of every kind make day-to-day life more comfortable for residents – there are state-of-the-art alarm, energy management, CCTV and communication systems.

To underline the unique nature of Sky Restelo the architects looked for a way to give the building an unmistakable identity at night. They found the answer in an individual and unique lighting installation. For the roof of the building they designed a glass-clad cube-shaped terrace equipped with an RGB lighting system.

As soon as the sun goes down, the glass walls are automatically covered with black curtains and the RGB spectacle starts. The cube is lit in brilliant colours – either a single colour or an everchanging series of colours.

Tridonic responded to this challenge of this lighting concept with the installation of 24 luminaires operated on PCA 2/28 T5 Excel one4all lp ballasts, each equipped with 16 T5 lamps in red, green and blue. The color schedule and sequences are managed by a DALI x-touchPANEL in the COLOUR Mode software, allowing the easy pick-up of the correct color in a 256 bit colours palette.

The combination of creative architecture and innovative technology has resulted in a building that stands apart from conventional structures in terms of its uniqueness and originality.
