Illuminating a chateau according to French rules

You will have understood, as soon as you make changes to the external and interior appearance of historic monuments such as castles, ancient houses, classified monuments: everything is controlled.  You need to submit an application to an architect from the Bâtiments de France (ABF), even for the installation of a new top of the range LED projector.  In France, there are more than 40 000 listed buildings or classified historical monuments.

For your chateau and its lighting, the best thing is to choose a company like ORSTEEL Light, that has been awarded the Label “Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant” (Living Heritage Company). This official French label is awarded under the patronage of the Ministry of the Economy and Finance to distinguish French companies with excellent industrial know-how, for a period of five years.

On visiting the medieval village today, you can admire the small streets carved out of the rock, which give incredible charm to this town of 12 000 inhabitants.

Monaco Cathedral

Another imposing building illuminated on the Cote d’Azur by ORSTEEL Light projectors:  Monaco Cathedral.

With its Romano-Byzantine style architecture, Monaco Cathedral was built using the white stones typical of La Turbie, a very beautiful town which overlooks the Principality. To showcase such a prestigious building, it was not easy to find the right top of the range lighting which would integrate perfectly. After a lot of thought, we opted for the “Ariane” projector, certified “Origin France Guaranteed” which meets all of the criteria of design, power and discretion that this prestigious place deserves.
