Applelec LED Light Sheet has been specified to bring illumination to the reception area of the newly renovated office complex, Premier Place, London.
A shinning gem in the heart of the city, Premier Place is situated in the architecturally varied destination of Devonshire Square. Designed by Stiff+Trevillion Architects, the previous 1990s office block has been completely reimagined, creating a modern and sophisticated structure that is targeting BREEAM Excellent for sustainability.
At around 22,236sqm, the commanding office complex features vast sheets of glass where floor to ceiling windowpanes flood the interior of the building with natural light, providing a bright and airy space. Upon entering Premier Place, visitors are greeted with a sleek and stylish reception area, where a dramatic double height ceiling is revealed creating a capacious and elegant room.
As part of the interior scheme for the reception, Applelec LED Light Sheet has been chosen to provide backlighting to create an impressive illuminated focal point. Positioned at high level above the seating area and the lift lobby, forty-seven Applelec LED Light Sheet panels were created in the slim 6mm profile option, ensuring the clean-line and minimalist design of the lighting scheme was maintained.
Created in 3000K LED option, the Applelec LED Light Sheet panels deliver smooth illumination and complement the light, spacious aesthetics of the central space. Integrated to backlight sections of opal acrylic, the light panels deliver a seamless and gently diffused back-illumination, helping to create a relaxing and calming environment.
Daniel Campbell, Director of Stiff+Trevillion said: “To reinforce the premium design of Premier Place, the lighting aspect for this project was carefully considered. With the feature wall positioned in such a prominent location and with so many light panels required, it was vital that the integrated LED units were reliable and delivered bright, consistent backlighting. Knowing Applelec LED Light Sheet is manufactured in the UK provided us with a sustainable, local resourced product with a solid reputation for quality and ensured the desired aesthetics were delivered.”
