Congratulations to the design team for the Miami Museum Garage who have won the Architizer A+ Award for the Concepts - Plus-Architecture +Collaboration category.

Architect and curator Terence Riley, who was commissioned to develop the concept, selected WORKac, J. Mayer H., Clavel Arquitectos, Nicolas Buffe and his own firm K/R to create the unique composition of the garage’s facades.

We were appointed as the Lighting Designers for the garage and enjoyed the challenge of designing a lighting scheme which would enable the facades to look as fantastic by night as they do by day.

We are delighted to be working with Westminster Abbey on the re-lighting of the interior.

We delivered an initial lighting strategy for this important, historic place of worship in 2016. The study looked at the role lighting plays in the day to day life of the Abbey and its various uses including worship, music, tourism and events.

We are now working to update the lighting throughout the main body of the Abbey, chapels, the Chapter House and Cloisters.

First look at lighting for San Diego-Coronado Bay Bridge

May 10 2019 — by Karina Armburg Jennings
Appointments
Last week, we conducted initial tests for the competition-winning lighting scheme for San Diego's landmark San Diego-Coronado Bay Bridge, in collaboration with the Port of San Diego, artist Peter Fink, engineers Buro Happold and mock-up contractor Pro Cal.

We temporarily illuminated 50% of two pillars to compare the visual brightness of various colours, with the view to minimising the amount of light needed, thereby reducing any potential environmental impact.

Principal Mark Major said: "We are very proud to be associated with this ground-breaking project. We aim to make it an exemplary project in which we create a beautifully illuminated landmark with no damage to the local ecology. The lighting tests showed how little light we need to get a great result."
