The previous lighting scheme for the Harrow School Chapel consisted of chandeliers utilizing compact fluorescent lamps and a central mercury discharge lamp. The clients initially declined use of chandeliers in any new design based on how poorly the existing ones performed, and to prevent any visual intrusion the chandeliers might provide to the interior. However, it became apparent that multi-task chandeliers would form the best basis for the new scheme.


Attaching new luminaires to the building fabric was not an option.


“Lighting creates a harmonious overall composition, highlighting the key features of the chapel,” one judge said of the project. “The flexibility of the lighting system allows for changes of mood and character. Simply beautiful.” The solution for the chandeliers was to design a custom skeletal fixture to be as visually transparent as possible.

This fixture was designed to incorporate six independently controlled lighting elements.


To supplement the


chandeliers, additional uplight and accent lighting were integrated into the architecture. All lighting elements are separately controlled through a programmable sceneset system with ten scenes.
