LARGE ARCHITECTURAL FEATURE LIGHTING FOR A CHURCH
ST. PETER'S CHURCH LONDON
9th March 2018
Situated in the heart of Fulham, St Peter's is a welcoming, family friendly Church of England place of worship with a lively community attracting all ages - young and old. The thriving congregation uses the space for anything from a Sunday service and Bible study to exciting activities aimed at children and youth using such as drama, music, games or just having fun making things.

Approached in October 2017 directly by Senior Minister Rupert Standring, we were asked to help with replacing the existing lighting, the aim of which was to bring more light to space and add a visual interest to the architecture.
The brief for this project was:
With the current lighting not providing enough of light and the church wanting to utilise the existing wiring points, the client wished to use architectural lighting to enhance the sacral feel of the space.
The biggest challenges for this project were the sloping access points for wiring and understandably, a competitive budget. Our team worked with the client, putting several product options forward and exploring the possibilities of delivering the best value products.
Full lighting design and calculations were produced to demonstrate the lighting levels the new fittings would achieve, and to help visualise the proposal.
The 1500mm Ouse pendant was chosen and approved by the client. The large ring-shaped luminaires were equipped with DALI dimming, giving the user freedom to use the lighting in several different modes. All fittings were supplied in a contemporary matte black finish.
Opulent and sober at the same time, the Ouse has a bold yet discrete design, achieved through the chamfered edge diffuser, and appearing to be floating in the space effortlessly. The slim and contemporary design equipped with an opal diffuser is ideal for church projects, emitting a soft and comfortable light.
The new lighting was supplied on time to the satisfaction of the client. The result is a modern, architecturally and visually interesting scheme allowing flexible use of the space.
