Ayr Renaissance was set up to breathe new life into the town centre through the delivery of a range of initiatives and projects. Realising the importance of lighting within the evening scene of the town the board engaged Lightfolio to carry out an assessment of the current lighting within the town and to deliver a cohesive strategy for lighting that included a seres of pilot projects designed to whet the appetite.
Through this initiative, two projects were selected, the Town Hall as the primary civic venue within the town centre and Newmarket Street, one of Ayr's most prestigious streets which has seen a decline in visitors and shoppers alike in recent years.
Lightfolio devised schemes for both, concentrating on the grandness of the architecture of the Town Hall and in sharp contrast the intimate and exclusive nature of the retail offer within Newmarket street.
Both schemes have been very well received and Newmarket Street has recovered some of it's appeal again which is wonderful for the residents, visitors and retailers of Ayr.
