Abstract

Bandung is a historical city which inherits many architectural heritages, including Gedung Sate as the office for West Java Governor. Development of Gedung Sate area are moving from widening the building’s wings, the Gazebo field, up to the Monument of West Java People’s Struggle; altogether in one axis toward Mount Tangkuban Parahu to become an urban icon in Bandung. As monumental buildings and landscape, proper lighting design concept is required in order to support visual performance and comfort around the area during nighttime. In this research, field measurements were conducted to map the existing lighting condition around the axis of Gedung Sate - Monument of West Java People’s Struggle. Subjective opinions from people at the area were also submitted by questionnaires. These data were considered as input for designing the lighting concept. Some ideas applied to develop the most suitable lighting concept for the area are constructing the imaginary axis, by arranging lighting installment in a linear path from south to north. Light emmiting diodes (LED) will be used at most to achieve the needs for color effect, energy efficiency, as well as long lifetime. Some decorative road lamps and pathway lamps will use HIT type, while underwater lamps in pond area will use MR 16 type, combined with LED to get the desired effect of color changing. From questionnaires regarding the new lighting design concept, 95% felt satisfy with the simulation result and 80% agreed if the design is implemented at the site area.
