The light planning is geared to the bank employees and visitors natural perception of light. The day and night artificial lighting changes over at an exterior luminous intensity of approx. 500 - 1000 lux. Double-equipped lighting systems, in which two different types of lamps can be switched on separately, support the varying outdoor light conditions with the relevant artificial lighting. Low-voltage halogen bulbs are used for the night-time lighting, for the daytime round fluorescent lamps, light colour "neutral white". Every workplace was equipped with a lamp that is to fulfil three aims:
- Adaptation to individual vision strengths
- Creation of individual "shading" for certain office activities
- Compensation of geometry-related differences in furniture arrangements.

The lighting for the large stairway called for spotlights above the air space. The direct glare is greatly reduced thanks to a special reflector technique. The counterweight of the transformers means that the entire jib, including the lamps, can be swivelled down for maintenance. Thanks to the different types of light reflection created by the various types of glass in the cone, the day and night-time lighting are reflected in the architecture as well.
