In 2010, StudioFractal rose to the challenge of creating a lighting design for the first new public square in London in 150 years, situated in central Kings Cross.
Brightening up the day for 140,000 passers-by was no mean feat. From moving shops to rehoming vents, team work made the dream work.
StudioFractal and its group of partners created a functional space with heaps of character.
Think inside the square
It’s the cleverly designed (and expertly hidden) LED lighting scheme which defines the furniture and structures in the square at night.
But it’s the one-off, specially designed columns that make sure the Cubitt Façade stands out from the crowd.
The result? A perfect blend of functional and accent lighting. The bonus? It’s highly sustainable, too.
acdc worked with StudioFractal to realise their design for this historic piece of architecture.
Light from IGLU in-ground luminaires grazes up the ground floor of the building to reveal the brickwork.
Higher up, acdc’s INTEGREX surface mounted luminaires subtly and gradually wash light upwards, fading out.
