A prime requirement was to make the luminaires as discrete as possible within the steel and PTFE cushion canopy. The forecourt is lit by 26 Sill 021 parabolic projectors for 150w HCI-T/WDL lamps complete with rotatable ellipsoid lenses positioned at the leading edge of the canopy with the remote extruded aluminium control gear boxes concealed back within the façade.The canopy itself is lit by low maintenance and efficient 041 Sill LED spotlights each with 36 blue Osram GD+ LEDS. The LED fittings are fitted with honeycomb louvres and anti-glare cowls and are wired for full remote dimming with DMX control. Sill provided not just the luminaires but also the ‘black box’ controls and interconnect cabling. The lighting design helps create a consistent, quality environment by giving architectural definition through the use of high quality and energy efficient lighting. The development uses aesthetic and ambient lighting combined with sustainable low maintenance, high performance fittings, lamps and control equipment. Sill Lighting’s luminaires have also previously played a major role in the lighting schemes at Heathrow’s Terminal 5 main building and bus station.
