Ever since the redevelopment the Drachenfels visitors experience nature and landscape, the local history and a contemporary gastronomical use united in a consistent design entity. The illumination concept for the restaurant inside the glass cube had to be designed to cater to the requirement of maximum flexibility. An attractive solution for every-day operation and glamour for nocturnal events was imperative.

The sollution to the challenge is the use of direct downlights emanating their light from circular apertures in the restaurant's custom-made metal ceiling panels. Appropriate to its landmark status, the building was to be experienced from the Rhine valley also at night. Thus the slab view from below is enhanced with light. Therefore, RGB-LED light strips have been installed behind the perforated metal panels of the restaurant's coffered ceiling. Their diffuse LED light softly illuminates the square ceiling coffers.
