Architectural lighting for a new entrance

Project summary

  • Sector: Retail & Leisure

  • Value: £3.5 million

Intu Lakeside commissioned DLG Architects to design an iconic new entrance for their popular shopping destination to support their growth in to the evening leisure sector.

Working in partnership with lighting experts Hoare Lea Lighting, we developed a light-permeable tower, backlit by a range of coloured lights, supported by concealed frame.

Internally, the centre concourse is illuminated by a dramatic pendant lighting feature which echoes the rectilinear form of the new entrance tower.
