New offices, New lights!


Branding agency venturethree now has new offices at Cavalry Square, part of the former Duke of York’s Barracks and they felt that they needed a sympathetic yet contemporary lighting design for these new offices. They have worked previously with David Atkinson Lighting Design LTD (DALD) on the SKY gallery and Back Stage bar at the 02 London and decided to approach them.


The ground floor entrance consists of a long arcade, a space which they have illuminate with a suspended direct/indirect T5 light source housed within a continuous extrusion. This visual impact of the thin extrusion does not detract from the splendour of the vaulted arcade. It adds a contemporary linear design element, with natural daylight entering the space from the west side of the arcade they decided to fit 4000 kelvin tubes to give the space a crisp appearance. This links through to the ground floor office. It lacked natural light so a combination of 600mm x 1200mm LED panels suspended above the desks fitted with 4000K LED chips were used. The perimeter of the space is lit by recessed 1300 lumen down lights, fitted with 2700K and a wide optic of 60°. There is a large wooden staircase to the first floor studio; this is also lit by recessed 1300lumen down lights, fitted with 2700K and a medium beam angle of 40°. By using the 2700K it helps to accentuate the wooden staircase and adds warmth to the space.


The landing has an alcove feature, lit by small baffled down lights fitted with 7.2w 3000K LED. The first floor studio space has a pitched roof so they have two sources of light within the space. The main is from a series of slim 3000k 70w metal halide asymmetric up lights, positioned either side of the space. To bring light to the centre of the studio space, overlapping T5 lamps are housed within a slim linear extrusion, suspended below the eves. The extrusion also incorporates emergency gear. venturethree said "DALD have a great track record of transforming spaces into beautiful and emotive environments. But more importantly they recognise and understand how people use space, whether it's to have fun in or to work in, they have a detailed knowledge of how lighting brings out the best in people. It was for this reason we asked DALD to help us with our lighting scheme early on in the project. It's hard to imagine now how our studio was before we moved in. We had a narrow and wide glazed arcade flooded with natural light, a void sitting behind with no natural light and a disjointed space upstairs which was rather gloomy. DALD worked closely with ARD, creating different lighting themes for each area. They have helped make the working environment within the studio a pleasure to work and spend time in." This lighting design has been based entirely on energy efficient light sources.
