Product: HLS LED Minipuck

Lighting Design: DPA Lighting Consultants

Landscape architects: Gross Max

Client : London Borough of London, Transport of London

Distributor : Wila Lighting UK

Renowned landscape architects Gross Max designed an urban space in Brixton, bringing three  public spaces together: Tate Gardens, Windrush Square and St Matthews Peace Garden. The overall vision was to create a safe and well-lit public space that reflects the multi-cultural fabric of Brixton. London Borough of Lambeth and Transport For London appointed DPA Lighting Consultants to create a lighting design concept that would promote the recreational use of the square after dark and enhance views into the space from the surrounding area.

To achieve this, the edge of the space was illuminated, using columns in key perimeter positions, leaving the central space relatively free of artificial illumination. Instead, landscape focal points are illuminated such as a landmark plane tree and 20 metre tall  street sculptures. The sculptures are illuminated by  uplights and twinkling integral LED Minipucks, supplied by Planet Lighting via UK distributor Wila Lighting.

The unobtrusive and versatile HLS minipuck, equipped with a sturdy polycarbonate lens, is ideal for public installations due to its vandal resistant design. It is easily integrated into all forms of street-furniture, sculptures or urban applications, and provides effective illumination without detracting from the original design intent.  Read more about the HLS LED minipuck (LED Handrail)
