London’s Knightsbridge Estate is one of the capital’s most exciting destinations. Retail, office, hotel and residential space occupies almost half a million square feet.
There’s a variety of building styles and periods and over 500 years’ architectural heritage on display.
The estate’s owners, Chelsfield, tasked lighting designer GIA Equation with creating a unique façade lighting concept to establish a powerful night-time identity.
Consistency and visual continuity. (Not easy when you consider the 500+ metres of façade with its many different textures, colours and finishes).
Light fittings had to meet a specific criteria too: high quality, easily maintainable, compact and discreet.
Importantly, installation had to be simple. Why? To minimise disruption to the buildings, passers-by and retail activity.
