The reception area of the Center for High Performance Computing and Visualisation had a big face lift. The space used to be a bit dark and had an unfriendly atmosphere, but now it has become a nice bright spot for receiving guests. A large panorama of a forest adorns the round wall. The panorama is illuminated from the back using more than 600 power LEDs.

The horizon of the forest is approximately at eye level (when you are standing), which makes the impression even mightier. With a dimmer near the door, the brightness can be adjusted to the weather conditions outside.

The final result is a great place for inspiration and where we can give guests a proper reception.
