fantastic body of work behind him.” “I was flabbergasted when the Lighting De- signer of the Year award was announced,” Grubb said, “but it is not just for me but for the whole team at Sutton Vane Associates who have worked really hard on some fasci- nating projects, particularly this year.” Grubb has worked on all aspects of lighting design since 1997. Many of his high-profile schemes, such as the lighting strategy for the park and public realm aspects of the 2012 Olympics, emphasise sustainability.


EXTERIOR Sutton Vane Associates’ regeneration scheme for Cathedral Square, Peterborough won the award for Exterior lighting. Early collaboration between the lighting consul- tant, the local authority and local busi- nesses has helped transform the Cathedral Square from a dark and unwelcoming area at night into a destination with a growing night-time economy.


The scheme integrates the lighting of public and private buildings to create an inviting space that includes a water feature lit by colour-changing LEDs, and warm, even, white light reflected from the facades of heritage buildings. The judges described it as “dramatic, considered and socially responsible” and “an elegant, considered lighting solution that encourages public use but doesn’t overpower the space”.


HERITAGE


dpa picked up the Heritage category for their sympathetic treatment of Worth Abbey Church working closely with Heatherwick Studio. Utilising the existing luminaires as far as possible, a custom designed family of luminaires in the same style were used ca- pable of carrying out different tasks within the church. The result, according to the judges, is “a stunningly lit space. An emo- tional and extremely well delivered lighting scheme”. See pages 56-64 in this issue for an in-depth report on this project.


HOTELS AND RESTAURANTS MBLD won the Hotel and Restaurant cat- egory for W hotel, London. MBLD worked hand in hand with the interior architects Jestico+Whiles to design all of the interior spaces of this, according to the judges, “beautifully executed and designed” scheme. The aim was to present a different performance in each space moving visitors through the hotel. “Each space is differ- ent and well executed with a variety of moods,” said the judges. Almost the entire hotel uses LED or CFL keeping the efficacy as high as possible and the change from day to night was kept simple by confining the use of coloured light to the night time. “This is a perfect example of dynamic light- ing design that works well in conjunction with the interior design,” the judges said.


LARGE RETAIL


Isometrix Lighting was victorious in the Large Retail category for their work on the Zaha Hadid Architects designed Roca London Gallery. It was essential when lighting the Roca London Gallery to produce a scheme that seamlessly integrated with the space. All lighting was calculated by hand and intu- ition and was required to deliver the follow- ing: daylight supplement, display rendering, flexibility, minimal energy use, excellent colour rendering and even colour tempera- ture consistency. The result is a “stunning interior space and integrated lighting – fluid and organic,” according to the judges. Lighting coves were developed forming large over-lapping seams between com- plex curves of concrete and plaster and integrated spotlighting details incorporate other services seamlessly into the sculp- tural spaces. Flexible displays meant that spotlighting positions were calculated to avoid shadowing or shallow angles. “A bold scheme that works well with the architec- ture,” said the judges.


SMALL RETAIL


Cinimod Studio scooped the first of their two prizes in the Small Retail category with their Itsu T5 Butterfly In Flight installation at Heathrow Airport. The key components of the piece are the aluminium supporting structure, the light emitting polycarbonate wings and the custom lighting system. Each wing has inlaid within it a high density LED
