Dazzling skylines across the globe – our work on exterior architectural lighting projects

Tuesday, August 16, 2016

As our skylines have become bigger and bolder over the decades, exterior architectural lighting has evolved alongside.

Making a bold impression through your exterior lighting not only gets you noticed by passers-by, but accentuates the architecture of the whole building – allowing visitors to appreciate it night and day.

We work with architects and designers to create and install stunning exterior lighting displays, illuminating buildings internationally. Here are a few of our favourite exterior projects we’ve completed.

King’s Cross Square, London

The Kings Cross Square re-development was the first large scale public realm project in the UK to use only LED technology and Kemps were specified by StudioFRACTAL to provide both standard and bespoke LED luminaires.

The design subtly compliments the backdrop of the grade 1 listed building whilst transforming the space around the building and the way people use it.

Grand Hyatt, Dubai, UAE

With 674 rooms spanning 10 floors you’d think the Grand Hyatt would be difficult to miss, but the competition in Dubai is fierce. That’s why they needed something to really bring the building to life.

The stylish design sweeps all the way around the building, illuminating the rear side in staggered strips which give it almost an art-deco feel.

Queen Street, Leeds



We supplied over 300mtrs of Cold Cathode lighting using our Xtreme system for this office space refurbishment in Leeds. Xtreme is ideal for exterior lighting as the transformers can be installed up to 60 metres from the lamps which means maintenance is easily manageable.

The exterior lighting illuminates the top floor flagship office space brilliantly, appearing UFO like on the Leeds City Centre skyline and leaving bold impression on all those arriving into the city as they pass by.

If you’ve got a project which could be illuminated with innovative exterior lighting, get in touch and we’ll talk to you about turning your vision into a reality.
