Museum Castle Vischering Lüdinghausen
Compact, powerful wall and ceiling luminaires
The historic, moated castle in the Münsterland region in Nordrhein-Westfalen is one of the oldest and best preserved complexes in the region.
Established in the second half of the 13th century, the habitable defensive structure evolved into the ancestral home of the Droste zu Vischering family. In the 16th century, wide ranging damages caused by a fire led to the reconstruction and extension of the building. Converted into a cultural and community center after the second world war, the castle today accommodates the Münsterland museum, in addition to rooms for concerts and lectures, as well as hosting temporary art and cultural history exhibits.
Following a renovation lasting a year and a half, the complex reopened in February, 2018. The architecture itself is the main focus of the new exhibition concept. The sensitive treatment of light sets the stage for the historical rooms in a subtle way. The ideas were translated with compact wittenberg 4.0 spotlights and high-performance one piece ceiling uplights. In some areas, both series were combined within a single housing, in order to meet the necessary requirement.
