Wesley Memorial Chapel
Oxford

Historical

Wesley Memorial Chapel was one of several projects included in the Cross of Light initiative striving to improve the perceived quality of Oxford’s key buildings at night.

Following a series of lighting trials appropriate locations were identified to position lighting equipment, so as to emphasise the verticality of the tower and spire on all elevations.

The entrance at the base of the tower was extremely important and lighting techniques included, uplighting to the stone arch, uplighting to the tower buttresses and the backlighting of the stone pediment above the entrance doors, creates a floating effect.
