Lighting Design Partnership came to Light Culture with a task – to magnify the archways and doorways of the Central Station Grand Concourse.
The challenge with this project was to make as little as possible impact on the actual structure while installing lighting as it is a Heritage building.
With the structural context given, the aim was to find a solution that has enough output and a controlled distribution with a ceiling wash on each archway that leads to the Grand Concourse.
The lighting designers at LDP came up with the idea by combining two rows of Where Is Ben 14 wall-washer profiles, mounted one behind the other, on each side of the archway. Based on their elevation brief, Light Culture was then able to customize a slim U-Shaped gutter to host these two profiles.
When it comes to the Grand Concourse itself, again the idea was to magnify each arch looking glass doors around the Concourse, with something slim enough, so that the light can be seen while the light source concealed. Very compact dimensions of the Downhill Dan 10, surface mounted and embarking 20w/m LED strip, met the requirements.
The other challenge of this project was to make luminaires in custom lengths to fit the existing dimensions of the allocated space. Working closely together with the lighting designer and the site contractor, Light Culture delivered this prestige project on time and without difficulties.
