DHA were very happy to receive the Highly Commended certificate for the lighting scheme for Navy, Nelson & Nation at this year’s Lighting Design Awards. The shortlist of the Public Building category ran to nine projects, so the judges had a very difficult time determining the final winner (T2 at London Heathrow by Hoare Lea & studioFRACTAL).
The Public Building category is one where DHA have received considerable success at the Awards, and our tally now stands at:
DHA were delighted to receive the award in the Leisure category at this year’s Lighting Design Awards for their work at the Everyman Theatre in Liverpool with Haworth Tompkins Architects. The scheme was up against a strong shortlist, including the Globe Theatre & London Aquatics Centre.
This award continues an incredible run of accolades for the refurbished theatre, including the RIBA’s Stirling Prize, a Civic Trust Award, an LABC Excellence Award, a Stage Award for Theatre of the Year, and nominations for several more yet to be judged.
DHA were delighted to have the privilege of lighting Rembrandt: The Late Works for the National Gallery. Working with exhibition designers Urban Salon, and the gallery’s curatorial team. DHA used new LED technology with a variety of fixtures and lenses to highlight these astonishing works. The challenge was the precision required to light such amazing portraits without shadows or reflections from glazing or varnish.
The show has had unanimous five-star reviews, including The Evening Standard, Independent, The Guardian and the Sunday Times and really is a once-in-a-lifetime show. More information including tickets can be found here:
DHA have just completed the three major shows at the V&A, all to favourable reviews.
Horst: Photographer of Style is a retrospective of one of the leading Twentieth Century photographers, and Constable: The Making of a Master shows an amazing collection of Constable’s work alongside his influences. Most recently, Russian Avant-Garde Theatre: War, Revolution and Design, presents over 150 costume and set designs (shown above) against a dramatic backdrop.
All three exhibitions use existing fixtures from stock, which DHA needed to use creatively for three very different experiences. More information including ticketing can be found here:
