Above The tunnel is lit by simple, linear luminaires - the Quill Solo from Profile. Recessed within the new tunnel cladding, the overall effect is a bright and reflective tunnel space. Far left Quiet study areas located around the perimeter are lit as separate zones, with each work station provided with individual task lights - wall mounted Artemide Tolomeos and Concord Level wall mounted uplights that introduce focal points around the perimeter. Left Circulation lighting in the informal study area is generally provided by spill-light from the bookcase lighting. In some areas this is supplemented by Concord Stadium LED spotlights, that light the vertical surfaces to expand the volume of the space.


Luminaires are located between the beams. This provides a clear space and removes them from the user’s direct view. This was important due to the low ceiling heights. A linear lighting approach was employed with a regular arrangement of bespoke Quad 100 low profile extrusions with asymmetric controllers from Optelma concealed within the beams. The lower level is primarily used for book storage and has a combination of modern mobile and static shelving. Where possible, the Sam 220 linear luminaires from Optelma were raised into the space between the beams, allowing greater flexibility for the shelving and creating a cleaner visual scene. On both floors study areas located around the perimeter are lit as separate zones, with each work station provided with individual task lights. This is achieved using the wall mounted Tolomeo from Artemide, together


with the Level wall mounted uplight from Concord, which introduce focal points around the perimeter. Circulation lighting is generally provided by spill-light from the bookcase lighting. In some areas this is supplemented by Concord Stadium LED spotlights that light the vertical surfaces to expand the volume of the space. The tunnel is lit by simple, linear luminaires - the Quill Solo from Profile. Recessed within the new tunnel cladding, the overall effect is a bright and reflective tunnel space. Heat gains from the lighting have been minimised. The rows of light fittings over the bookshelves are controlled by occupancy sensors so that they only switch on when a user is searching for a book. Desk lamps at the reading benches provide localised light only where required. The delay time for the PIRs in the library shelving areas is being fine turned, so that the department can reduce


it from the initial 30 minute time period where possible, thus further saving energy. By reducing the heat gains, Hoare Lea was able to maximise the benefit of the heavy thermal mass and remove the need for cooling in the spaces. www.hoarelealighting.com
