Customer Challenge

 

As part of a broad project to transform the city centre, the city of Sunderland wanted to create a new, high quality public space that would encourage a broad range of activities and social interactions, using illumination to enhance architectural features, animate spaces and improve the night-time atmosphere.

Sunderland City Centre

The right lighting

 

Meeting the challenging design criteria required a bespoke approach that would make the lighting integral as a sculptural feature of the square, whilst also fulfilling its functional role. The solution combines the latest lighting technologies with bespoke structures, designed by Philips in conjunction with project partners, and advanced controls to deliver a versatile system that fully meets Sunderland Council’s requirements.
