Facade architectural lighting allows most successfully to highlight all the architectural objects and design features of the building. There are many ways of organizing the lighting of the building, among them, such as: local, background, flood, contour, dynamic lighting, hidden or combined lighting, as well as "light fronts".

Contour architectural lighting is used to illuminate the corners of the building using led tubes or strips.
In flood lighting uses spotlights, aimed at building. A powerful spotlight and the correct angle of lighting gives a wonderful flavor to this building.

- The use of energy-saving systems (the inclusion of lighting using motion sensors, adjust the brightness with the natural brightness, lighting modes depending on the weather and time of day, etc.).
