MANCHESTER, 2014

Light Bureau has designed lighting to illuminate this Spinningfields development, ensuring the building has an identity of its own both day and night. The circular perforations in the screen are visible from all directions and the depth of the façade panels provided Light Bureau with an opportunity to highlight patterns by illuminating them from an acute angle with luminaires concealed at first floor. Mediacom, the building’s occupant, has a strong colour associated with its identity and whilst the lighting can achieve millions of alternatives, the design team felt that the general effect was already enough and that the colour stays within Mediacom’s palette, thereby reinforcing their identity. The project is, in fact, a very simple treatment but is all the more effective for a clear concept.
