DHA Designs wins at Lighting Design Awards

We were delighted that our scheme for NEX Architects-designed Royal Wharf Pier in London has won the Best Public Realm Lighting Project award at the 2020 Lighting Design Awards.

We managed to beat some remarkable projects in the UK and worldwide to win this, so this was a great accolade for the scheme designed by Des O’Donovan. We had already been shortlisted in the Darc Awards for this project earlier in the year.

The scheme had to respond to the location, the use of materials, other river users & of course users of the pier to create a single, dramatic scheme that pulled all of these elements & requirements together into a fully-integrated whole.

Thank you to our suppliers (LEDLinear, iGuzzini) & collaborators who helped make this happen, and to NEX for their beautiful architectural response to the river.

We have a great track record with working with the NEX team: our previous collaboration was the remarkable Vardo Restaurant in Duke of York’s Square, London: here our lighting was shortlisted in the 2020 Restaurant & Bar Design Awards.
