Richmond Riverside

The Richmond Riverside development, designed by Quinlan Terry, is located on the banks of the Thames near Richmond Bridge and was originally completed around 1987. In 2013, the courtyard and façade were refurbished and lighting was a key component of the scheme. The heritage lanterns were re-purposed to incorporate more visually comfortable and long life lamp sources. The courtyard was lit with subtle projectors to capture the patterns created by the new trees planted there. The façade, being a large proportion of the scheme was completely replaced with subtle, LED warm-white light sources to enhance the elevation while reducing glare to interior spaces and the net effect was a great improvement in illumination and a reduction in energy from 7.25kW to approximately 500W, 92% less than before and with a substantial improvement in maintenance needs.
