We are pleased to announce the completion of the installation and commissioning of the new lighting scheme at Tewkesbury Abbey. The design includes all LED light sources with luminaires from Mike Stoane Lighting and controls by Pharos and Cooper Controls
Light Perceptions have been appointed to design a new lighting scheme for the Great Hall of Lambeth Palace, currently the home of the Palace Library. The works also include new heating, environmental control, flooring and other repair works.
Light Perceptions are working on a new exterior lighting scheme for the Banqueting House on Whitehall.
Designed by Inigo Jones and completed in 1622, the Banqueting House was built for James I (1603-25) and is now the only surviving whole building from the great palace of Whitehall on the Thames. It was the first complete example of classically influenced Palladian style architecture in England. The East and west façades were originally polychromatic but the elevations seen today are primarily the work of Sir John Soane who refaced the deteriorating exterior in Portland.
The proposed scheme uses all LED light sources with warm and soft white colour temperatures which will minimise energy consumption and extend maintenance intervals whilst giving an easily controllable and flexible lighting scheme.
Light Perceptions are thrilled to have been appointed to develop lighting concepts for the Great Hall at Lincolns Inn, London. Built by the architect Philip Hardwick, the hall was opened by Queen Victoria on October 30th 1845.
The Great Hall now serves all the normal purposes of a hall in an Inn. During the four dining terms of the year, each 23 days long, it is used for dining, and students of the Inn keep their terms then. In addition, the hall provides lunches for members throughout the year; and the social and professional fellowship that this affords is an important facet of life at the Bar. Because of its size and acoustics, the hall has also been found a desirable venue for choral and orchestral concerts arranged by the Bar Musical Society.
The new lighting scheme will include the restoration and upgrade of many of the existing lanterns and chandeliers, a new suite of picture lights for the many portraits and paintings that are displayed as well as new lighting for concerts and other events.
Light Perceptions have been appointed to design a new lighting scheme for The Chapel Royal of St Peter Ad Vincula at the Tower of London.
Originally a parish church, the Chapel was incorporated into the walls of the castle during
Henry III’s expansion. It has been rebuilt at least twice, once in the reign of Edward I, and then again in its present form in Henry VIII’s reign. Three queens of England Anne Boleyn, Catherine Howard and Jane Grey, and two saints of the Roman Catholic Church, Sir Thomas More and John Fischer, are buried here. Their headless bodies were buried under the nave or chancel without memorial until the 19th century when remains found in the nave were re-interred in the crypt.
Light Perceptions are delighted to have been appointed as designers and project managers for a comprehensive relighting of Hereford Cathedral. The project is generously funded by a donor and friend of the Cathedral working with the Cathedral Perpetual Trust.
The project is due to complete in February 2015 ahead of the 300th anniversary of the Three Choirs Festival which is to be held in the Cathedral later in the year.
