The Challenge

To address the need for additional bicycle parking in Amsterdam, a large underground garage was constructed beneath the IJ Canal, providing space for 4,000 bicycles. The parking facility required an innovative lighting solution that seamlessly blended with the architectural design, prioritized energy efficiency, advanced technology, and ensured user safety and comfort.

The Solution

LEDVANCE was given the project because of their products, design, and expertise. They developed and implemented a comprehensive lighting concept using over 260 flexible 5-meter LEDVANCE IP67 LED strips. The concept focused on creating an attractive, individually controllable, and energy-efficient lighting pattern that met the specific on-site requirements.

The Benefits

The LED strips used in the underground parking garage provide design flexibility and seamlessly integrate with the architectural design. They enhance the natural lighting aesthetic while offering high energy efficiency and a long lifespan of up to 60,000 hours. These LED strips align with the sustainability and energy-saving goals of the bicycle parking garage and require minimal maintenance. They can be easily interconnected using the integrated cables on both sides.


LEDVANCE created a lighting concept for the IJboulevard parking garage in Amsterdam, designed to house 4,000 bicycles. The integrated LED strips blend harmoniously with the architectural design and are part of an innovative light management system. They provide even and flexible controllable lighting throughout the space. With their high energy efficiency and long lifespan, the LED strips contribute to the sustainability goals of the parking garage.
