Abstract [en]

The purpose of this thesis was to increase the understanding and discuss safety aspects in two stairwells on Nyforsgatan in Eskilstuna, where the buildings were built during the years 1965-1975. I have presented a proposal for improvement through lighting. I have through different methods, such as surveys, interviews, literature studies and observations, come to a conclusion: that there are opportunities for improvement through better lighting that allows orientation in space and creates a nice atmosphere which will remove the feeling of not being safe, e.g. dark corners and shadows. It has been an exciting process to gather enough of facts to rely on and to develop the lighting design for the environments. It has also been an interesting and inspiring process that has improved my knowledge within the field of information design and spatial design, particularly concerning the importance of light for perception of space.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med detta examensarbete har varit att öka förståelse och diskutera säkerhetsaspekter i två trapphus på Nyforsgatan i Eskilstuna, som är ett miljonprogramsområde. Genom belysning tog jag fram ett förslag till förbättring. Det finns möjlighet till att förbättra belysningen i dessa trapphus, som underlättar orientering i rummet och skapar en trevlig atmosfär samt tar bort faktorer som skapar osäkerhetskänsla, t.ex. mörka vrår och skuggor. Jag har kommit fram till resultatet genom enkätundersökningar, intervjuer, litteraturstudier och observationer. Det har varit en omvälvande process att få tillräckligt mycket fakta att grunda sig på samt att ta fram en förbättrad belysning i trapphuset. Det har samtidigt varit en intressant och inspirerande process där jag har fått förbättrad kunskap inom området informationsdesign och rumslig gestaltning, särskilt gällande ljusets betydelse för uppfattning av rummet.
