The project

Jaffa Gate, main entry to the old City of Jerusalem, was illuminated by world-class lighting designer Roger Narboni. The Mikado model was chosen for both its technical efficiency and its harmonious appearance. The 200 light poles and wall-mounted luminaires, with their warm white lighting tone, create a pleasant nocturnal atmosphere for passer-by and visitors alike, sublimating the imposing walls of the Citadel at dusk.
