National Museum of Scotland – opens July 2011

We have just completed the commissioning of the new lighting scheme for Edinburgh’s National Museum of Scotland, after five years spent on the project. Working with RAA and Gareth Hoskins Architects, our scope includes the lighting of the new entrance area on the lower ground floor and over eighteen gallery spaces housing the museum’s collection of over 8000 objects. The museum’s £46m refurbishment received a glowing review in The Guardian today. Attached are a few photographs taken during our commissioning.

Everyman Theatre, Liverpool – Lighting Tests

Earlier this month, we carried out a lighting test on a section of the new facade screen for the Everyman Theatre in Liverpool. Designed by Haworth Tompkins Architects, the screen consists of laser cut metal panels with photographic images of members of the public. The new building has over a hundred panels. Staff members will be able to rotate the panels from inside the theatre offices, depending on sun shading requirement. We tested a section of four panels, floodlit from above using a 1200mm linear LED wallwasher from our friends at Ecosense. With a 60 x 10 degree optic, the distribution was perfect. The new theatre will open in 2013.
