Light Bureau gets a hole in one

Light Bureau was commissioned to provide architectural lighting design to the Cube Room and the mixed and members bars at the Grade 1 listed Richmond Golf Club in Surrey. The Cube Room has been dramatically illuminated by concealed light sources at low level, providing intimacy for the diners. Plasterwork and artefacts are sensitively picked out by precise accent sources. In the bar areas, simple wall lights have been added to create a relaxed feel, and new pendants were added to improve the ambience. Refurbishment and re-siting of the existing chandeliers was also carried out. Light Bureau was also called upon to make substantial improvements to the external illumination of the Grade 1 listed building. The new lighting design solution comprises small low power sources mounted on the façade to bring out key architectural features such as the columns and stone balustrade. A gentle wash of light is achieved using ground recessed uplights and asymmetric linear washlights located in the building lightwell and landscaped area. These are close enough to the façade to avoid light trespass into the interior, and lamped with warm white fluorescent sources to provide a soft, convivial light. Light Bureau designed custom accent light fixtures for placing on the column bases and to the elevation next to the entrance doors to create the all-important three-dimensional emphasis missing previously.

LA subsidised low energy lamps scheme reminder

After March next year there will be no more subsidies for compact fluorescent lamps. The Lighting Association’s EELS* scheme makes high quality Spiral and look-a-like shaped energy saving lamps available to independent retailers. So far, more than 150,000 lamps have been supplied via the LA; the subsidy from E.ON has enabled the lamps to be sold at a massive discount. More than 350 retailers have taken advantage of EELS and they can now establish a competitive edge with energy efficient lamps. The Association is also working with the British Hardware Federation to ensure these high quality, low cost lamps reach the widest audience possible. The lamps are all Energy Saving Trust Recommended and are supplied in a range of cap types (including SBC), wattages and sizes. Peter Hunt, CEO of the Lighting Association, says: ‘Independent retailers should take advantage of this great offer while the subsidy is available. Finally, independent retailers can also have access to high quality EST approved CFLs at an amazing price. This is an offer not to be missed.’ Contact Ellie Peters on 01952 290 905 or to sign up.
