Across the globe as urban populations grow, investment in urban real estate, infrastructure and renovation is becoming more prominent.
Architectural lighting as part of this investment can provide a city with it’s own identity.
Whether it’s a building or structure, modern or heritage, lighting is key in ensuring locals can, want and feel proud to experience their home town or city at night.
Explore the Night - Love the city
What can bring tourists into a city, a space and be the reason they return, is the use of architectural lighting to bring the city to life at night. Through the subtle integration of lighting into the architecture, visitors will see the city differently at night - potentially drawing them into an area surrounded by bars, restaurants and shops - increasing dwell time and potentially overall spend within an area. In our new guide we discuss the use of lighting to provide a city's identity and give examples of projects completed.
Carlisle Citadel Case Study
We have worked closely with Cumbria Council and have worked closely to achieve new schemes for Carlisle Citadel, railway station, station hotel and Griffin pub, with other projects including the Crown and Mitre pub also in the pipeline. A range of acdc luminaires bring these buildings to life and in this complete case study we talk you through the lighting schemes created for these buildings and discuss why Cumbria Council wanted to invest in architectural lighting for their city.
