PROJECT / TITANIC BELFAST, NORTHERN IRELAND


AFTERMATH - This area explores the impact of the loss of Titanic in the years immediately after 1912. Clean and simple 3000K lighting with track-mounted Toucan 2 spotlights provides a soft ambience and supports the AV projections within the space.


LEVEL 2 Consisting of two adjacent areas (Communi- ty and Education) with separate uses, each space is required to be flexible and func- tional, requiring ambient ‘working’ light with fully dimmable suspended fluorescent lamps. The Temporary Exhibition Space has linear track each side of the steel beam supports so that all areas of the gallery can be lit from more than one location.


LEVEL 3


The Senior Officers’ Suite located within Level 3 consists of office accommodation, a meeting space and a small kitchen facility. Meeting Room task lighting is provided by a linear suspended pendant directly above the main meeting tables and there are ad- ditional wall mounted uplights on the walls. Fluorescent lighting provides general light- ing for the kitchen.


LEVELS 5 & 6 These levels are reserved for the Banquet- ing and Pre-Function spaces. The prestigious Banqueting Suite sits within a large double height space with décor that is sophisti-


cated and contemporary while maintaining the ‘spirit’ of the First Class Dining Saloon aboard the Titanic. The large (4500mm diameter) domed recesses within the ceiling house large contemporary lit sculptures on the theme of the traditional chandelier. Additional lighting hidden around the inner circumference of the dome creates a ‘Tur- rell’ lighting effect from within. Whilst nor- mally warm white for every day use, 700m of RGB cold cathode from Belfast-based AM Light is incorporated within the decora- tive ceiling to ensure that all future events within the space can be branded as needed. Remote Control Lighting DR7 narrow beam spotlights (4 degree) precisely highlight the centre of each banqueting table. This was needed as it would be impossible to focus lighting once a function layout had taken place. 246 Concord Torus recessed spot- lights and 159 Concord Myriad V 50 recessed downlights are also used in the Banqueting space.


Lighting around the perimeter walkways on Level 6 was needed for catering/wait- ers, however Sutton Vane Associates did not want this to impede views out across


the city. SVA worked closely with Precision Lighting to develop 45 bespoke machined aluminium 140mm cylindrical fixed wall mounted downlights to ensure glare could be minimised. Daylight was maximised for day events with artificial light subtly lay- ered where needed. Ecosense Linear LEDs illuminate the drapes. The two Pre-Function spaces (Britannic and Olympic suites) are used for assembly, pre- dinner drinks, canapés, smaller meetings and conferences. They are lit purely with warm white light, including the decorative ceilings that incorporate 3000K cold cath- ode, again from AM Light who supplied 400 metres of warm white cold cathode to the suites. Recessed spotlights sit directly above the bar area using ‘dark light’ optics to en- sure glare is kept to an absolute minimum.


THE EXHIBITION


In general, a simple ‘white light’ scheme has been adopted throughout all of the gal- lery spaces. A variety of lighting techniques were used in each of the zones including lighting tabletop display cases with linear LEDs, integrating miniature LED spotlights
