St. Modwen Offices, London, UK

dpa were invited to help with the lighting of an office refurbishment project in central London by Project Managers Swift Refurbishments. We worked with Hemingway Design to develop a fresh, contemporary lighting approach to this flexible interior office space. Staff have been given the chance to work in many ways, standing or seated, alone or collectively, in a meeting room or a more casual setting and the lighting responds to suit these varying environments.

Bespoke suspended pendant lighting was used throughout over desks to provide both up and downlighting whilst task lights were on each workstation providing the individual opportunity to tailor their own lighting to suit their requirements. The use of many decorative floor and table lights all follow the interior aesthetic to create a more residential and relaxed atmosphere. Lighting was also integrated in joinery and displays providing a well coordinated, clean and considered result.

The interior design and lighting work together to push forward a scheme with interest, variety, warmth and vibrancy.
