DPA Lighting Consultants has created a sleek lighting scheme to fit with an elegant building project.


The project comprises a re-model, refurbishment and extension of the existing building. The lighting was designed to integrate in a seamless and elegant manner within the fabric of the building.

Two new feature staircases were constructed to provide a flowing connection between the upper floor offices and the communal ground floor areas, leading directly into a double height restaurant, which also serves as a gathering and celebration space. Both feature staircases utilise a trimless graphic line detail to accentuate their spiral forms and at the same time provide the required ambient illumination and emergency lighting.

In the entrance lobby, illuminated profiles were designed to match the proposed timber slat cladding, giving prominence to the double height volume, which also forms an essential part of the external expression of the building.


This project has been longlisted in the architectural lighting design category of Dezeen Awards 2022.
