Poured concrete walls at either end appear to float as they are illuminated with a wall graze LED striplight. These were detailed at the junction with the clerestory. The challenges this created were to not only shield the light from the external view, but also to avoid any reflections of the lighting within the glazing. At night the glass reflects the interior like a mirror and particular attention was made on site to cowl and shield the light source. The fittings were so carefully concealed that you could use the gym equipment next to the wall and still not see the light source.
In the lower ground floor, devoid of any natural light, a warm ambience is created by ceiling cove lighting which reflects off the warm timber finishes. Striplights were carefully detailed into the changing room joinery to create lit niches and give a sense of depth within the space. This gives a sense of serenity and calm within a spa environment.
