Spectrum House refurbishment wins lighting award
A refurbished Glasgow office block been given a lighting award for its strengthened street presence and minimal, linear, clean and bright spaces.

KSLD were commissioned to work with Michael Laird Architects on the project which entailed updating interiors and installing an array of LED light boxes on the façade.

This work saw them secure top place in the workplace lighting category of the Lighting Design Awards.

Commenting on the win KSLD’s Claire Hope said “The subtle animated ripple of the light boxes really makes this building stand out from its neighbours in a very understated way. It adds a touch of flair which should draw the attention of prospective tenants.”

Kevan Shaw, design director at KSLD, added “The judges remarked on the detailing and integration of the lighting. This is only possible working with an architect, in this case Tim Griffin from Michael Laird Architects who trusts the lighting designer and responds to their ideas and advice.”

I think this is exactly what this building needed, a lighting scheme to brighten up its otherwise dull exterior. It was much too restrained and high calibre architects like Michael Laird to make it presentable.
Well done guys!
