Winner of RIBA National Award and London Conservation for Alexandra Palace
27 June 2019
Ridge provided Lighting Design for Alexandra Palace, which won the RIBA London Award 2019, RIBA London Conservation Award 2019 and RIBA National Award 2019.
Alexandra Palace, also known as The People’s Palace, is a iconic London venue, it opened in 1873 in North London and is surrounded by 196 acres of parkland.
Over several months, Ridge lighting designers, with the assistance of the lighting suppliers, adjusted and focused the light fittings to illuminate the architectural arches of the East Court. Treating the arch structures as “ribs”, alternating colours of light were programmed to accentuate the scale and depth of the room.
Complimenting colours were set to the spotlights aimed at the newly decorated feature floor.
The external arches were lit to complement the lighting of the iconic mast, another scheme engineered by Ridge lighting designers.
At night, the East Court now glows with light, turning the Palace into a visually spectacular attraction.
