SHOREDITCH HIGH STREET, LONDON
Patalab Architecture, 2016
Shoreditch High Street is home to many vibrant and creative work hubs. The spirit of the area reflects on the rich history of clothing, furniture, and printing. Many new office or retail developments are pushing the boundaries, setting a high standard for the area. Our team has been involved in several high-quality projects in this trendy part of London. The recent addition to our “Shoreditch project gallery”, is the 141-143 Shoreditch High Street development.
We worked alongside Patalab Architecture to supply office lighting for a Cat A refurbishment of this unique 4 storey building. Our team was involved in the design process from the initial stages all the way to completion. A lighting scheme and calculations were produced to support the architect and samples of the luminaires were provided to the design team to be signed off.
The design brief for Shoreditch High Street was to create a street presence and a new identity for the refurbished building. This has been achieved by the distinct design of the main staircase and exposed atrium, a highly creative design, much in keeping with the trendy Shoreditch area. The new office space was calling out for modern LED office lighting, in line with the high standard of the refurbishment project.
The Leam Suspended LED was specified for the main office lighting and used on all floors. The office floors benefit from high ceilings and plenty of daylight. The modern design of the Leam LED contributes to the ‘raw’ stripped-back look of the interior featuring the exposed bricks and visible services.
With its increased efficiency it represents a new generation for modern office luminaires and mimics the T5’s ability to distribute light direct/-indirect from a single source. Leam can be used as a standalone luminaire or as part of an interconnected linear lighting system.
All lighting was supplied in time to the satisfaction of the client and looking at the pictures, our team feels proud to have completed work on yet another exciting office refurbishment in Shoreditch.
