Lightfolio has been working with Keppie Architects to develop the exterior lighting scheme and public realm landscaping for a new multi-million pound office development in central Glasgow. The lighting scheme particularly concentrates on a vast LED-lit glass façade, which will become a network of animated lights, creating beautiful patterns sweeping across the building. This acts as a perfect interface between public realm and private office spaces, creating a gentle undulating counterpoint to the hustle and bustle of city centre life.
The public realm concept uses copper mirror (used throughout the building exterior) to reflect interesting angles of it’s surroundings and offers passers-by an unusual set of perspectives of both themselves and of the wider environment. Paired with native Scottish planting, an energy-efficient lighting scheme and simple yet bold stone paving, this scheme encourages interaction with the public and provokes curiosity from viewers.
