Light-U were introduced to this project by architectural glass specialists Daedalian Glass of Hambleton in Lancashire. Having worked with them on previous projects they knew what creative elements we could bring to the scheme. We developed the initial brief from static illumination of the main unique feature glass ceiling to a scheme where we would attempt to replicate the rippling effect of the water using moving light.

Various methods were tested and the final solution for the illuminated ceiling required 64no 18 LED light bars, each populated with a combination of cool white, neutral white and warm white LED’s with DMX control, enabling various effects to be selected at the touch of a button. A number of bespoke programmes were commissioned  to fade and mix the light to recreate the rippling effects we required.

Light-U also specified and delivered the other elements of the scheme including LED spots to the faceted screens, AR111 downlights to the corridors and manufacture of 25 bespoke gear trays for the unique glazed wall lights which were dressed with the the special kiln formed glass from Daedalian.
