CDN lighting in the Olympic Winter Games Beijing 2022


Review CDN lighting project in the Olympic Winter Games Beijing 2022.


Project Brief


-Shougang industrial park, the big air jump stadium, and sports facilities.

-Location: Beijing, China

-LED fixture: Bitonto spot light, LED bollard light, in-ground light, linear lighting, and tailor-made lighting.




We are honoured to have been a part of the program helping to build one of the major venues. CDN provided lighting for the industrial park, the big air jump stadium, sports facilities, and a 5-Star hotel.



The park is built on the site of an abandoned steel mill. It not only serves the Olympic games, but it is also a symbol of urban regeneration and a model for sustainable cities.




How did lighting design reveal the hidden qualities of Big Air Shougang at night?


“We aim to let it strikes people the same way as it does during the day, but at night, it is more impressive, so it is essential to process some exaggerated and salient features that will be visible in the nighttime.” According to Mr Zhang Xin, Head of Lighting Design for the Big Air Shougang, Yanqing and Zhangjiakou Competition Zone Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics, and Associate Professor at the Tsinghua University School of Architecture.

CDN tailor-made spot lights were used in the project.


Big Air Shougang is the world’s first permanent venue for big air jumping. Surrounded by four cooling towers, it’s to blend with the whole appearance of the industrial site and respects the original history. After the Beijing Winter Olympics Games, the facilities will continue to serve residents to be used for various sports competitions and training, as well as hosting cultural and public events.

Culture Plaza of Liudong New Area

cdn-lighting-peoject-culture-plaza- liudong-new-are


The Culture Plaza of Liudong New Area locates on the south bank of LongHu Lake in Liuzhou City, China. The building has a constructed area of 195,000 square meters and an area of 69,000 square meters. In the shape of a butterfly, the “butterfly” on the shore of LongHu Lake symbolizes the development momentum of Liudong New Area.





Let’s review how the CDN lighting solution was implemented to reveal the dynamic sense of the project.


In the Liudong Culture Plaza, we used Arezzo series linear lights (300MM model splicing) to outline the main building from the top. The lighting was selected for a more precise beam angle and light colour to ensure consistent lighting output.





Arezzo is a masterfully designed LED linear light for a wide range of applications. It’s optional to have value-added accessories for anti-dazzle, and 180° accurate directional adjustment.














CDN outdoor lighting in the Plaza is controlled by an intelligent system that offers preset lighting modes, such as “Festival mode – Weekday mode – Late night mode”.
In addition, the lighting system can integrate with the Plaza’s audio system and monitoring system to create a dynamic impression for the entire project at night.





CDN provided both the outdoor lighting solution and the indoor lighting for the public areas;

Exterior lighting: Arezzo linear lights controlled by a smart system.
Interior lighting: Las Vegas downlight, Dublin track spotlight.

Moreover, life and business here are very convenient. One Galla Face, located in the heart of Colombo’s central business district, is a mixed-use complex developed and managed by the Shangri-La group.

The project positions luxury homes occupying a landscape of 51,000 sq m (552,547 sq ft) consist 19 garden house buildings with a plot ratio of 1.5. Located in Zhengzhou, Henan China, the properties were designed by Lee Wei Min Architects and developed by Youwell Estate.





CDN Las Vegas downlights and ML2.0S magnetic linear system helped to fulfil the highly consistent interior style, create a very clean and comfortable lighting environment.





How to choose consistent lighting for different ceiling heights


Some of our partners had once encountered a headache problem in their lighting design projects: where to get a proper light fixture that can perfectly fit in a vast range of different ceiling heights yet still give out highly consistent CCT and clean light spots?





Then the answer reveals in the CDN Las Vegas downlights, serial products consist of 5-sizes cut-out from Φ55mm to Φ150mm to nicely illuminate space heights from 3 metres to 12 metres.





Some facts about the Las Vegas Downlights:

UGR < 6

CRI Ra > 95

SDCM < 2





Project reference: a luxury apartment in Dubai.

We used Las vegas downlight, ML2.0S Magnetic Linear lights, and strip lights in this project.
