Sun City Palace Tsukaguchi

Itami, Japan

Sun City Palace Tsukaguchi is a continuing care retirement community one hour northwest of Osaka. The 600 independent living apartments are supported by ample common areas that take maximum advantage of natural light and garden views.

Auerbach Glasow was retained by BAMO, the interior designer, to provide architectural lighting design services for the public and common areas and three restaurants. The lighting design carefully followed the designer’s intent to provide spaces that are dignified, comfortable and encourage social interaction and community pride. The lighting is reminiscent of high-end hospitality venues giving a sense of elegance and sophistication.
