Heritage Lighting

Historical building and monuments are often amazing feats of architecture and engineering. Many have been enhanced and brought to life at night time with striking and subtle external lighting schemes. There are a number of matters that should be examined before progressing with a design. The most important of these must be the acceptance that a simply technical approach is useless.

The main objectives of external lighting should be:

     To promote observation and experience of the site against the night sky

     To give the building an added dimension which will enhance its key architectural elements as well as its social and historical significance

     To improve the quality of the nocturnal environment by promoting safety, i.e. avoidance of trip hazards

      To enhance night-time orientation and use, which could potentially benefit the local economy

Therefore an aesthetic as well as technical approach is essential that will ultimately govern the result
