PROJECT / TITANIC BELFAST, NORTHERN IRELAND


and legend that surrounds Titanic. The small space has a contemporary and bold feel that highlights the structural beams and provides a visual indication of what is awaiting within Gallery 9.


GALLERY 9: IMMERSIVE THEATRE The Immersive Theatre represents the culmination of the visitor experience cover- ing three levels and incorporating high definition footage of the Titanic wreck. Lighting within this space is bold and the- atrical without compromising the footage displayed. All surfaces are lit in blues and greens with a combination of colour chang- ing floodlights and gobo projectors creat- ing the sensation of being deep within the ocean. Rosco X24 gobo projectors with mo- tion wheels create moving water and ripples effects on the ceiling to recreate the surface of the ocean. Track lighting above the seating can be raised for events such as seminars and there is acdc Ultra linear LED lighting under the seats and under steps to help visitors navigate.


EXTERIOR Titanic Belfast is destined to become an iconic piece of architecture both within the city of Belfast and internationally. The visitor experience begins outside the building in the plaza where there are no lighting columns and no direct lighting on the ground, as part of the lighting strategy. The space is welcoming and safe, bathed in light reflected off the façade using indi- vidually focused, recessed uplights. These pick out individual elements of the façade rather than delivering a blanket, even light by using a mix of narrow and wide beams and wattages from 70W to 150W to reveal its texture.


The use of colour temperature also extends to the exterior with cool whites above and warmer whites at the base of the building provided by iGuzzini in-ground Linealuce fluorescents and through the use of shadow with Louis Poulsen IPR12 ground-recessed

Sutton Vane Associates wurde durch Harcourt Con- struction beauftragt, das Beleuchtungsdesign für alle öffentlich übersehbaren Bereiche innerhalb und um Titanic Belfast herum bereitzustellen. Dies umfasst das Hauptatrium, Verkehrsflächen, Banketthalle und Empfangsbereiche, Dauerausstellungsbereiche, die temporäre Galerie, die Aufzüge, Toiletten, den Platz im Freien und die Gebäudefassaden. Der 100. Jahrestag des Stapellaufs der Titanic stellte einen unverrückbaren Endtermin für die Fertigstellung dar. Aus diesem Grund war es entscheidend, eine Beleuchtungsstrategie für das gesamte Gebäude zu entwickeln, welche die Entscheidungen während des gesamten Ablaufs bestimmen würde. Dies bestim- mte den gesamten Designprozess. Eine Reihe von allgemeinen Beleuchtungsprinzipien wurde verein- bart, um zu gewährleisten, dass die Beleuchtung so- wohl hinsichtlich der Ästhetik als auch hinsichtlich Beleuchtungstechnologien koordiniert wurde.

uplights. Lighting the vertical surfaces rather than the ground also helps create atmospheric reflections in the plaza’s water pool. Careful focusing has also ensured that there is no light pollution or energy wasted despite the façade being lit from below.


PUBLIC REALM


The polar lines that cut through the plaza chase through the space animating the exterior while providing a clear visual link to the building itself. Ambient light is cre- ated by lighting surrounding features, such as trees, structures and special features. Lighting is incorporated within the hard landscape features to create a clutter free environment both by day and by night. The journey line showing the route of the Titanic on the map of the world on the ground is described using Crescent CLF2210 one-dot LEDs.


Sutton Vane Associates’ lighting concept and the final results are remarkably similar thanks to a well thought through and ap- plied lighting strategy for the whole project which meant that the theme and the end- result was always kept in focus even though there were inevitable adjustments along the way.


Grubb is delighted with results: “This has been a great project and two things in par- ticular have worked in our favour. First we were able to define a strategy for the whole project that everyone could refer back to. That meant that we stuck to key ideas like the unusually low lighting levels in some areas and the narrative use of colour tem- perature throughout the project, so the end result was was what everyone wanted. The other good thing was that this included both the interior and exterior lighting although they were subjects of separate tenders. That made it so much easier to make the visitor experience start as people see the building.” www.sva.co.uk


schaffen Atmosphäre, reflektieren und unterstützen die Erzählung der Titanic-Geschichte; sie tragen dazu bei, ein Identitätsgefühl für das Gebäude und seine umliegenden Bereiche zu entwickeln und sind so konzipiert, dass sie stromsparend, nachhaltig und pflegeleicht sind. Titanic Belfast bietet eine un- glaubliche visuelle Anziehungskraft und ist bereits ein Stück Architektur mit starkem Kulturcharakter für Belfast bei Tag wie auch bei Nacht.

Harcourt Construction ha commissionato a Sut- ton Vane Associates dei progetti di illuminazione per tutti gli spazi pubblici stimabili all’interno e intorno al Titanic Belfast. Questo comprende l’atrio principale, gli spazi di circolazione, gli spazi per eventi e riunioni, gli spazi espositivi permanenti, la galleria temporanea, gli ascensori, i servizi igienici, lo spiazzo esterno e le facciate dell’edificio. La ricor- renza del centenario del varo del Titanic imponeva un termine irrevocabile al completamento dell’intero

progetto. Era, quindi, fondamentale sviluppare una strategia di illuminazione per tutto l’edificio che guidasse le decisioni per l’intero processo di proget- tazione. Si è concordata una serie di principi generali di illuminazione che garantissero un’illuminazione coordinata sia in termini di estetica sia in termini di illuminotecnica. Essi creano l’atmosfera, riflet- tono e sostengono la narrazione della storia del Ti- tanic, stimolano lo sviluppo di un senso di identità per l’edificio e gli spazi circostanti e sono proget- tati per offrire efficienza energetica, sostenibilità e facilità di manutenzione. Il Titanic Belfast offre un’incredibile attrazione visiva e rappresenta già un pezzo di architettura altamente iconico per Belfast, di giorno e di notte.


ESPAÑOL


Harcourt Construction le encomendó a Sutton Vane Associates que proveyera los diseños de iluminación para todos los espacios de acceso público dentro y alrededor del Titanic de Belfast. Esto incluye el atrio


principal, los espacios de circulación, los espacios de la sala de banquetes y de pre-funciones, los es- pacios de exhibiciones permanentes, la galería tem- poraria, los elevadores, los toillets y las fachadas del edificio. El 100 aniversario del lanzamiento del Titanic significaba que había un plazo inamovible para completar el trabajo. Por lo tanto, fue esencial desarrollar una estrategia de iluminación para el edificio entero que guiara las decisiones a lo largo del proceso. Ello guió el proceso de diseño entero. Se acordaron un conjunto de principios generales de ilu- minación para asegurarse que la iluminación fuera coordinada tanto en términos de estética como de tecnología de iluminación. Ellos crean la atmósfera; reflejan y apoyan el relato de la historia del Titanic; ayudan a desarrollar un sentido de identidad por el edificio y los espacios del entorno y son diseñados para ser eficientes con la energía, sustentables y de fácil mantenimiento. El Titanic de Belfast ofrece un atractivo visual increíble y ya es una enorme pieza icónica de arquitectura para Belfast tanto para el día como para la noche.
