PRIVATE SPA, LONDON CLIENT: PRIVATE ARCHITECT: LAWSON ROBB Involving a complete refurbishment of a Grade II listed Georgian townhouse in west London, the project included the creation of a wellness centre, wine cellar and home cinema. The lighting in the wellness centre was fully integrated into the architecture and the furnishing, this was done in close collaboration with the architects, in order to achieve the serene and seamless environment the client desired. Revealing the texture of the finishes, the architectural lines and creating focal points throughout the space. The lighting played a leading role in the overall feeling and use of the space. A flexible control system was used to allow the client operational options to fit each function, be it exciting and elevating or relaxing and soothing.


OLYMPIC CINEMAS, BARNES LONDON CLIENT: OLYMPIC CINEMAS ARCHITECT: HENLEY HALE-BROWN RORRISON ARCHITECTS DIRECTOR ARCHITECTS: SIMONE MCEWAN Olympic Studios once played host to the recording sessions of The Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, Nina Simone and Pink Floyd. The rebirth of the space generated two cinema screens, a restaurant, a member’s bar and function room, while one of the original recording studios was retained. The lighting needed to follow the vintage style of the space and, to accommodate this, numerous salvage luminaires were retrofitted with new technologies prior to installation. In order to achieve the balance between the appearance and the performance of the different spaces, a double system was introduced with the combination of LED sources for a base illumination and tungsten decorative features for the highlights. For the Cinema space the intention was to keep all elements, including the light fittings and the speakers, in the same red colour as the finishes. A carefully random placement of red LED cylinder downlights act as house lights, while low level lighting under the seating aid way-finding in the dark, as well as additional lighting for cleaning and maintenance.
