The Halcyon international school in London stretches across the Leo Baeck College and the West London Synagogue. The building works started with the refurbishment of the old part of West London Synagogue, and then continued through the conversion of Leo Baeck College.

The final stage was the renovation of the shared reception area and circulation spaces. Budget and timely delivery was an important part of the selection process.

Our team supported the architect with the lighting design and product evaluation for the reception and circulation space. The idea was to use one product, which could be used as a suspended profile and a modern, yet sober feature product at the same time.


The custom length linear LED profile we put forward was the Lopen suspended. Available in a custom size and shape (a 2.4m square in this case), the Lopen can be used as a direct/- indirect luminaire. Lopen suspended can be DALI dimmable, offering the reception area the flexibility of use and light output.

The shape of the circulation areas has influenced the shape of the suspended luminaire. The space was calling for a custom length – we used a 2.8m, 3m and a 8.2m long profile. With the 80 mm wide frame, this profile has a presence in the space.

Lopen is stylish and it’s maintenance is very low. The product was delivered in time to the customer’s satisfaction.
