part of the run up to European Capital of Culture 2008
Graham Festenstein Lighting Design developed
a new Lighting Strategy for Liverpool city centre with the aim of
providing a design approach for integration of architectural
lighting and public realm schemes.
work included an overall concept design , and sketch design
proposals for over 80 buildings proposed
to be lit as part of the publicly funded feature
lighting programme bringing Liverpool nearer to its aim of becoming
one of Europe's lit cities.
The practice then went on
to light over 30 of these mostly listed buildings, monuments and
Liverpool city centre includes a UNESCO world
heritage site and many of the buildings lit were listed.
important issues of sustainability and energy efficiency are key
elements within the strategy and translated into the use of new lamp
technologies within the detailed design of some of the schemes
providing lighting that is both economic to run and with low carbon
lighting consultant to the City the practice also acted as independent
consultants to the planning department with regard to the L1
development; as well as identifying an approach for the integration of
new schemes and developments with the existing city centre lighting.
The strategy applies the principles of Lighting
that form a core part of our design work for
City Council / Liverpool Vision
