No.1 Court, Wimbledon
AELTC, London SW19
Having been approached in early 2016 by M&E consultants Gratte Bros, on behalf of Sir Alfred McAlpine whose client was the AELTC (All England Lawn Tennis & Croquet Club), we were asked to supply all recessed public walkway lighting products for the new No.1 tennis court at Wimbledon. These needed to be ready and operational for the Championships commencing July 2017.
After a series of meetings and a detailed overview of requirements, we identified a number of products that we thought would work well. Working closely with the onsite team and our partners at BEGA, we supplied samples and all relevant data files for output, glare rating and installation processes. Once the products were approved, delivery of the installation housings and luminaires were organised to fit in with the build program for specific dates in May this year. (Project photos coming soon)
Kensington & Chelsea, London
We were contacted by the main contractor for a high-end residential development in the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea with a view to supplying a variety of highly bespoke lighting products for the total refurbishment of the development.
Meetings with the architect and interior designer were held to determine and select the required products. A variety were then chosen from manufacturers in Germany, Italy and the US with the latter needing re-engineering so as to adhere to CE certification. Project Style diligently managed this process making sure all products met the stringent UK wiring and output standards. Products used: BEGA, Mizar, Artemide
We were contacted by the restaurant owner prior to its opening, to create a lighting solution for the restaurant front, with particular emphasis on the signage.
After visiting the premises several times, we understood the importance of making the frontal area stand out particularly in such a busy, built-up area where there are a high volume of restaurants and competition. Our solution was to use small spotlights on outrigger arms to illuminate the signage and space. Inclusive of meetings, the order and installation of products, the project was completed within a month per opening requirements. Product used: BEGA
Having been contacted and met with the owner of this traditional Edinburgh two-bedroom apartment, we completed a survey of areas required and provided a selection of product samples for the owner’s perusal.
It was important that the products complemented the abundance of natural light that filled the space. Correct zoning of task, ambient and accent lighting for both day and night time was crucial so as to take in account extended periods of natural light during the summer months and darkness in the winter. Products used: Limburg, Lucitalia, Tobias Grau
The client visited our studio at Cedar Nursery, Cobham, and required an outdoor lighting scheme for their five-bedroom property. Onsite meetings with the client presented a house with extensive grounds that had been separated into specific zones and outdoor areas and therefore needed a variety of different solutions.
We decided that the ‘less is more’ concept was needed to provide depth of scope for the client, particularly when viewing the garden areas from within the property, and specifically in times of darkness. Small areas of trees were illuminated with ground spike mounted floodlights, while globe luminaires were supplied to provide portable accent and ambient light in relaxation areas. Products used: BEGA
In May 2017 we were contacted by a garden designer on behalf of his clients who were based in Pirbrigh, Surrey. After an initial introduction on the phone, a site meeting was set up and walk around to discuss the clients' wants and needs along with their likes and dislikes. It was then time to assess their desired look and style. Then came the discussions regarding location of product, type of lighting required in each area (ambient, accent or task), timers, sensors etc.
In early June the initial proposal was sent through to client with ideas of areas to illuminate along with product options illustrating how to achieve clients desired outcome. Following the clients' appraisal of the proposal a further site meeting was organised to walk around and discuss individual product locations along with their efficacy for the task.
Then in mid June came the final discussions regarding product selection, followed by a meeting a few weeks later with both the client and a Project Style approved contractor. A discussion regarding final placement, utilisation of product and preferred install dates took place. August 2017 saw the start of the installation, which took in total six working days including the final sign off between client and Project Style.
