ARQBÓREA incorporates a dynamic lighting system adapted to our circadian rhythms. This system changes the light temperature (the colour of the light) throughout the day to regulate the circadian rhythms of the people working at the building.
Our circadian rhythms or “biological clock” synchronise with daylight, which changes colour depending on the time of day. People are “activated” at the beginning of the day and “de-activated” at the end of the day to get ready to sleep. Circadian rhythms and the impacts thereof have been and continue to be researched in depth and, in 2017, the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine was awarded to 3 scientists (Jeffrey C. Hall, Michael Rosbash and Michael W. Young) for their discovery of the molecular mechanisms that control circadian clocks.
The lighting installed at ARQBÓREA is programmed to start the day with warm light, then turn colder over the course of the day and return to warm light at the end of the day. This process is carried out automatically and users barely notice the changes in the office lighting, but their metabolism will adjust accordingly. The benefits of dynamic lighting include:
En definitiva, el centro de la iluminación son las personas y la mejora de su bienestar de forma activa. A este concepto se le llama Human Centric Lighting.
