When healthcare company Bupa refurbished their headquarters’ reception they wanted a lighting design scheme that was the heartbeat of the space – high on impact but low on energy.
The double-height reception area called for something special so bespoke, linear pendants were created emitting a soft blue hue, making for an eye-catching entrance. Light levels were carefully balanced throughout to make sure the rear of the space – where daylight’s limited – always felt bright, drawing the eye through and aiding orientation. Irregular coves provided ambient illumination and wall-recessed linear LEDs completed the feature lighting.
The result is a visually exciting, energy-efficient lighting design scheme that ticked all the design brief’s boxes.
