SMALL STREET, BRISTOL
Small Street, 2015
This beautifully restored Georgian building is situated just off Corn Street, one of the principal streets in the historical centre of Bristol and just a stone's throw away from St. Nicholas Market. The building has recently undergone a huge refurbishment and is currently being used as a contemporary office space accommodating two different businesses.
We were approached directly by the client in November 2014 with a request for lighting design and sourcing the right luminaires to work with the existing ceilings. The client’s interest in clean design and a modern look was a top priority and a huge emphasis was put on making sure that the new office lighting would work with the contemporary style of the listed building.
The vaulted ceilings in the basement presented the design team with a few challenges, but after several site visits, our team came up with the lighting scheme exceeding the client’s expectations.
The Itchen track lighting was used on the vaulted ceilings in the basement office area. Neat looking and fully adjustable, the Itchen allows you to direct the light to a specific location.
Throughout the staircase, the surface mounted Mole fitting was used. This slim circular fitting blends in nicely with traditional architecture and the opal diffuser distributes the light evenly and lends the architecture a soft and modern look.
The suspended disk fitting Cole was used in the reception area. The deeper body of the Cole brings presence into the rooms with high ceilings and matches the contemporary look of the reception. The offices were fitted with the suspended linear fitting, the Dufas LED. The LED technology combined with smooth dimming and opal diffuser delivers efficient and uniform lighting.
The project was delivered to a tight schedule much to customer’s satisfaction and we are pleased to see a great example of architectural lighting for a listed office property.
