Dec / Jan 2020/21 Issue of arc Magazine
My photography is featured in the Spotlight section of the latest arc Magazine, the international magazine for lighting in architecture.
I photographed the award winning ICON Outlet centre at the O2 in London for CallisonRTKL who worked alongside Hoare Lea.
The design focuses on the creation of two unique retail experiences – the Petals and the Clouds – to correspond with the leasing strategy and the character of the space they occupy. The ceiling treatments within these spaces are a unique feature to the site, designed to create a sense of light, space and tranquillity. Clever use of LED lighting enables the tone and look and feel of the development to shift depending on the time of day.
The success of a mixed-use project hinges on activity. The more people are walking around, using the space, and engaging with it, the more it creates an inclusive atmosphere and people want to be there. Creating spaces where communities can come together, alongside major entertainment destinations would ensure that the district will never ‘go dark’ and the different zones will offer varied, engaging experiences for visitors any day of the week.
I also have an advert in the magazine.
