We supplied various bespoke light fittings to the refurbishment of PWC at 1 Embankment Place; set in a unique position, constructed above the existing Charing Cross Station
The project was overseen by lighting designers Chapman BDSP & Architect TP Bennett, with The Light Lab acting as one of several luminaire suppliers.
“Linear LED fixtures run continuously on each side, using existing wireways and control forms, lighting across the barrels. Interspersed are additional fixtures, which illuminate the ribs that span the ceiling at intervals. Because of the obstructing metalwork, The Light Lab made special fittings that run in 300mm sections to sit across the rib. “The ceiling was originally lit with cold cathode and we were able to improve the light levels substansially”
