Installation date

June, 2023

Opened July 2022 in Kusatsu City, Shiga Prefecture, the Kusatsu Oroshimo Branch of the food centered supermarket chain Valor is the 17th to be opened in Shiga Prefecture and the 23rd in the Kansai region, joining a network of over 240 stores across various regions Japan. Situated on a roadside location, the store is set within a vast single-storey steel frame building spanning 14495.12m², and offers on-site parking for around 200 vehicles.

'Balance' was a key consideration in the lighting design scheme for the parking area, seeking to deliver uniformity across the exterior areas whilst remaining mindful not to disturb the tranquility of its surroundings. With the aim of maintaining ample illuminance levels across the parking area, LEDioc AREA RAMUS pole top luminaires have been positioned effectively around the central areas in a scheme that delivers overall illuminance that is both well balanced and environmentally designed. With a gentle light linking to the perimeter areas where LEDioc FLOOD NEO floodlights have been positioned, the pedestrian walkway directly beneath is also securely illuminated.

Meanwhile, the pedestrian walkway linking the store to the access road is illuminated by UNIS Stick Short LED luminaire which feature a simple and refined design; rhythmically projecting light and shade onto the path surface, the scheme also benefits customers who visit the store by foot. Unconstrained by the uniform luminaire selection of the existing scheme, the well-balanced positioning of luminaires in the new scheme has produced a lighting environment that delivers energy savings in addition to a pleasant and secure ambiance at night.
