A rather unusual LED lighting project for us - part of the extensive redevelopment of this central London Office block - a steel and glass feature staircase was installed linking Reception with all 8 office floors.

Working for ImtecAqua Building Services - the project's M&E contractor - Lightmasters supplied and installed Dialight high power Optic LED strip fittings to illuminate a textured feature wall running the full height of the building behind the staircase.

The underside of the staircase structure features a bright white LED ‘stripe’ - running through all floors and landings. Fabricated from ECOLED aluminium profile sections, recessed into the steelwork, it contains over 200M of high power, cool white, LED tape. Matching illuminated sections were also fitted into a leather feature wall in Reception.

All the feature LED lighting is DALI controlled from the central building management system.

Thanks for the very professional way your company installed the special lighting effects in the gym and studio. The results are really stunning and create a fantastic ambience. Members are delighted with the overall impact which gives a real sense of theatre. They particularly like the light display that pulses in time with the music. Brilliant!

Hotel Bannatyne, Hastings

Hotel Bannatyne, Function Bar - White LED Downlighters Hotel Bannatyne - LED Strips and Downlighters Hotel Bannatyne - LED Par Cans Hotel Bannatyne - LED Stips and Downlights

Hotel Bannatyne Hastings has long been the perfect location for Weddings and other social occasions. With the recent opening of a purpose built function suite in the Hotel grounds, there are few venues that can compete with the luxurious interior and facilities provided.

Lightmasters, working with interior designer Gail Thomson of Purpose Design (01313 328820) and Bannatyne’s Mark Thornhill, designed and supplied an energy efficient, 100% LED-based lighting system.

Toshiba E-core warm white, mains dimmable MR16 LED spotlights are used to illuminate all public areas and a mix of DMX controlled RGB and warm white, high-power, LED tapes are used to up-light the central ceiling coffer. Feature walls are grazed with both warm white and RGB LED colour change spots, even the numerous chandeliers are fitted with dimmable LED lamps.

The whole system is controlled from a Show CAD touch screen and can transform the venue from a bright white exhibition hall to late night party-mode & anywhere in between, in a matter of seconds.

The Function suite also features a multi-zone Bose® Freespace® sound system together with comprehensive AV presentation facilities.

Bar Bannatyne, Newcastle

Lightmasters has enjoyed a long relationship with the Bannatyne group. Over the years we have provided AV systems to their extensive Hotel, Health Club & Spa estate.

Bar Bannatyne, situated in The Gate, Newcastle's premier leisure and entertainment centre, was in need of a makeover – ready to attract the local sports fans for the kick-off of the Football World Cup 2010.

Working closely with Mark Thornhill, Bannatyne National Estates Manager & Interior designer Peter Hodgson, Dakota House of Design, Lightmasters supplied & installed a dynamic colour-change LED lighting system as well as Video projectors & LCD TV screens to this fantastic new-look venue.

Shaka Zulu, London NW1

Shaka Zulu Shaka Zulu Shaka Zulu Shaka Zulu Shaka Zulu

Situated in Stables Market Camden, the brainchild of entrepreneur Roger Payne, Shaka Zulu is a truly unique South African themed Restaurant.

Having worked with Lightmasters many times before, Roger knew he could depend on us to deliver a spectacular mood lighting system fit for such an amazing venue; - 27000sq ft over 2 floors - where Restaurant seamlessly morphs into a New York style dance club.

The extensive lighting system utilises some 700 Dialightt MR16 LED spotlights & linear optic strips. Warm white to illuminate all escalators, walkways & tables, RGB colour change for the numerous wall murals, statues & bar areas. 7 Pearl River moving head fixtures provide the excitement as dining gives way to dancing.

All lighting is controlled from a Show CAD Artist system with DJ & Staff touch screens via a distributed DMX system.

As there are no conventional lamps or dimmers used in the public areas – the system is both energy efficient as well as extremely flexible.
