Mönchengladbach Central Library: Bartenbach's lighting concept makes renovated monument visible in the cityscape
From a classic library to a public place for education, networking, and exchange: For this transformation of the Mönchengladbach Central Library, the responsible Schrammel architects have not only changed and expanded the building structurally, but Bartenbach's innovative lighting concept also contributes to reviving the historic building from the 1960s – and making it an attractive meeting place in the Gladbach & Westend district. After a three-year renovation phase, the library, also known as Carl Brandt's House, reopened its doors and reading rooms in the summer of 2023.

Hanau City Library: Bartenbach and Schrammel Architects design inspiring reading rooms with light and colors
Flooded with intensely colorful and friendly light: The lighting design for the Hanau City Library shapes and underlines the character of this special cultural space. In collaboration with Schrammel Architects, Bartenbach creates a stimulating room atmosphere, a fascinating play of light and shadow that invites visitors to the city library to linger and discover. Light that stimulates reading and imagination: From artfully arranged downlights to innovative elements such as the "crystal-like" stair lights, Bartenbach has carefully designed every detail – not only for an inspiring aesthetic, but also for maximum functionality of the library rooms.

Reading and learning in the best light: Bartenbach's user-centered lighting for the Düsseldorf Library
More than 300,000 books and media, 600 workstations for students and apprentices, a café, a music studio and a separate children's and youth area: The Düsseldorf Central Library in the premises of the old post office building at the main train station is the size of two football pitches on top of each other - and offers space for numerous cultural activities and events. However, the sheer size of the building also results in little daylight. A challenge that the lighting designers met with a creative, human-centered concept – which is also particularly flexible and considers future possible uses.

Project // Warm light for an atmospheric church interior
A sacred building in the neo-Romanesque style of the 19th century, large glass windows with minimal colouring that let in a lot of daylight: For the parish church of St. Johann Baptist in Neu-Ulm, Bartenbach implemented a lighting design that gives priority to natural daylight incidence and makes optimum use of it. At the same time, the lighting experts used artificial light, which gives the church a warm impression - like candlelight. This subtly emphasises the spatial effect and enhances the atmosphere. St. Johann Baptist was also the first church building that Bartenbach planned and implemented with variable colour temperatures.

Project // SAB Bank, Leipzig
In the forest of pillars Next to Leipzig's main railway station, a forest of 251 columns of the Sächsische Aufbaubank (SAB) stretches out in an irregular distribution. The grid of the arrangement shows a dense and at the same time diverging forest. The curved glass façade on the building blurs the boundary between outside and inside. The transparency of the envelope plays a major role and is reflected in the interior of the building. It radiates an integrated, technical solution and allows an open and light impression into the interior.
