Our brief was to design a permanent lighting system that would show off this grande dame of 17th Century architecture, but would also to allow it to be the backdrop for a kinetic lighting show on particular occasions – the annual film season, the winter skating rink, London Fashion Week and so on. Using a series of hidden LED battens hidden below ground level, we were able to paint the walls of the buildings in warm elegant shades of white, but then change them instantly in rich saturated shades of colour.
