Daylighting Solution for Nickel 28

Daylighting Solution for Nickel 28

Kingspan Light + Air

When proposing the architectural design, one challenge for Nickel 28 was how best to implement effective lighting into the large warehouse facility. Aiming to limit reliance on electric and artificial lighting in an effort to reduce energy consumption, daylighting solutions became a key consideration. Kingspan Light + Air, understanding the needs of the client, delivered a bespoke solution that satisfied the specific needs of the warehouse facility by helping to maximise on natural lighting. Implementing the Kingspan Day-Lite Kick wall light system horizontally across the loading bays in the warehouse enabled the facility to maximise on natural light without glare.

Chinmaya Mission exists to provide individuals with the wisdom and practical means for personal growth and development, enabling them to become positive contributors to society.  At Chinmaya Kirti, their home in London, a major renovation project was designed as a vision for future generations, rather than just an improved building.Working with architects, KJC, and contractor, Home Republic, Style was specified to be part of that vision, installing moveable walls to enable one large space in the classroom/bookshop area to be easily converted into six multi-functional rooms based on daily requirements. A combination of multiple Dorma Hüppe Variflex Glass and Variflex solid semi-automatic moveable walls were agreed as the best solution, with the glass moveable walls providing a 52dB acoustic barrier and the solid wall 55dB.With a standard anodised aluminium frame finish to the glass walls, and a melamine finish to the solid walls, the final installation provided a light and calm feel to the room design.“This is a great example of how using a combination of glass and solid moveable walls can transform how space is used,” said Michael Porter, sales director for Style South.“The glass moveable walls can combine to create a temporary corridor while the solid moveable walls then segregate the space into smaller individual rooms. Or the Mission can choose a whole range of combinations – from using one glass wall to simply divide the room in two, or to use the walls to provide varying sizes of rooms to suit the requirements of the day.“Such is the quality of the acoustic integrity that multiple events can take place within the segregated rooms without disturbing one another, which was an important factor at the Mission.“By including pass doors also means the moveable walls can remain in place for extended periods and the rooms can be accessed and used with ease.”
Flushglaze Rooflights Used To Bring Light Into Clean And Contemporary Apartment Buildings

Flushglaze Rooflights Used To Bring Light Into Clean And Contemporary Apartment Buildings

Glazing Vision Ltd

With limited vertical wall space for windows, Denizen Works utilised Glazing Visions’ fixed Flushglaze rooflights to flood the living spaces with light in their recently built housing scheme, Haddo Yard.The project, on the site of a former bungalow, is located in Whitstable, Kent and takes its name from Oliver Haddo, a character in former resident Somerset Maugham’s novel, ‘The Magician’. Haddo Yard forms part of a series of projects initiated by developer Arrant Land, that seek to explore how a town with a distinct visual identity can be enhanced by adventurous but contextual contemporary design.Having been approached directly by developers Arrant Land, Denizen Works undertook an initial design review exercise resulting in an extensive overhaul of the scheme. Despite the detailed design, problems emerged, with the ground floor living spaces extending into a single story volume to the rear of the site creating deep plans and on the second floor, apartments occupied roof space so vertical walls for windows was limited.Denizen Works contacted Glazing Vision, who they had worked with previously, with the aim to utilise rooflights over these spaces which brought light in to the deepest parts of the plan and to create living spaces on the second floor which could be flooded with light, even with a lack of vertical wall space.“Glazing Vision always provide good technical support which makes specifying and detailing their products very easy”, explains Andrew Ingham, the architect working on the project.One of the most important factors for Denizen Works when they sourced the rooflights were the frameless appearance of the Glazing Vision Flushglaze rooflights. Three fixed rooflights were used, measuring 2000x1000mm, as means of providing natural daylight and helping to maintain the clean, contemporary and minimal detailing that had been employed throughout the project.The resultant scheme comprises of 6no. two bed flats and 1no. 1 bed flat spread over three floors, each enjoying dual aspect and south-facing living spaces overlooking the gardens. The ambition for Haddo Yard was to create a distinctive and contemporary expression of local identity. The finished building asserts a bold and confident presence within its context.Haddo Yard is the first completed building by Denizen Works and Arrant Land, helping to present a unique addition to Whitstable’s built environment. Andrew Ingham concludes “We’re very proud of Haddo Yard and we have heard first hand just how much the current residents enjoy the light, contemporary spaces we’ve designed.”

Nothing short of perfection is accepted at TDC’s manufacturing facility. This meant the older sodium-vapor lighting fixtures were redundant and a lighting upgrade was essential to further boost productivity and visibility.Prior to the upgrade, the lux levels in the production zone were reaching 40-50 lux (lux is a standardised unit of measurement of light level intensity). This didn’t meet the Romanian standard of 250 lux for a production area and 150 lux for storage areas.Planning commenced on the lighting overhaul and after careful examination of the entire facility, it was deemed appropriate to source two different products that could meet the lighting requirements for each zone.Our Z LED Performance and Tornado Pro were identified as the perfect LED solutions for the TDC Glass manufacturing facility. Below is a breakdown of the zones and where each product was installed:-           Windows production zone (AZPELED)-          Glass storage area (AZPELED)-          Window assembly and testing area (ATORPLED)-          Glass cutting area (AZPELED)-          Windows storage area (ATORPLED)Looking more closely at the Z LED Performance, the die-cast powder coated construction and heatsink for optimum thermals and performance make it the perfect solution for providing illumination to the production zones. Coming in 100W, 150W and 200W, a long with a five-year warranty and an array of options such as Emergency, Integral Microwave Sensor and OCTO Smart Control, Z LED Performance is the ultimate low/high bay.Bolstering the Z LED Performance’s industrial credentials are the high specification IP65 and IK08 ratings and to further improve the installation experience, the robust high bay has alternative installation options by means of drop rods, jack chain and catenary wire. Bracket accessories are also available for ceiling or wall mounting.This provided the electrical contractors several potential options of installation at the TDC Glass manufacturing facility. Additionally, it comes pre-wired with 3M of H07RN-F cable for added ease and speed of installation.Most importantly, Z LED Performance now allowed TDC to achieve the required lux levels in those specific zones.The Tornado Pro provided the illumination for the assembly and testing area as well as the windows storage area. Tornado Pro comes with a hugely impressive seven-year warranty, multiple wattages, and options such as Self-Test Emergency, Digital Dimming, Dali Emergency, Integral Microwave Sensor, and OCTO Smart Control, allowing you to select the Tornado Pro most suited to the project requirements.With all our Pro products, we design them with the installer at the core of our thinking.

Gladstone Barber and Bistro is a story of family. It is not just a combination of 2 businesses working side by side. It is an accumulation of morals, values and thoughts that go towards creating an experience like no other. The team behind Gladstone Barber & Bistro set out to create a space that lived up to everything they believed in. Even the smallest of details, such as emergency lighting, plays a role when it comes to crafting a beautiful, relaxing space.   Emergency exit signs might not be the most exciting lighting product, but when it comes to the Adler, it’s innovative features make it a must have.  Adler has been designed for flexibility for installers with a rotatable legend feature that dramatically reduces waste. The arrow legend can be rotated according to the needs of the space, this reduces waste and increases flexibility. There is no need to order separate legends when ordering the Exit Sign.  The Exit Sign enables a choice of five different mounting options: suspension, recessed, ceiling surface, wall surface, side arm wall mounting. The unique ratchet adjustment design allows the legend to be adjusted and fixed at any angle between 0° - 180°, ensuring the Adler Slim Exit Sign can be installed almost anywhere making it one of the most flexible emergency products on the market.  The Adler is powered by a LiFePO4 Lithium battery, providing improved energy consumption, product reliability and lifetime. The benefits of Lithium technology include a smaller battery giving flexibility to luminaire design, a lower parasitic load and reduced power consumption. It provides protection against overcharging and mechanical damage and also uses pulse charging instead of tricle charging meaning less strain on components, thus extending the product lifetime.  The Adler, for all its innovative features, is also designed to be aesthetically pleasing. Gladstone Barber and Bistro went with the black version of the Exit Sign, making it fit beautifully into the interior design.  Another emergency luminaire installed was the Falcon. A compact surface ultra-low profile recessed self-test emergency downlight that comes in black and white finishes.  Supplied with open area and escape route interchangeable lenses, and featuring a high specification optic design and performance allows increased spacing (up to 19.6m) providing reduced cost.  Following the installation of the Adler exit sign and Falcon, multiple OCTO Bluetooth enabled smart controllers were installed for use with the OCTO Casambi eco-system which is suitable for commercial applications such as the Gladstone Barber & Bistro. The controllers are compatible with all other Bluetooth OCTO Casambi devices as part of the thriving OCTO Casambi ecosystem and provide intuitive fast operation from a smart lighting app. The app provides full control, dimming, scene setting and pre-set timers.Easy and fast installation is supported by the push-fit loop-in, loop-out terminals and a screw-less design. Overall, even the smallest of details must be thoughtfully planned to craft a great experience and with the Adler, Falcon and OCTO Controllers, Gladstone Barber & Bistro have lighting products that go above and beyond.

Bringing more greenery into urban spaces can help reduce stress and anxiety, and together with the wider planting scheme, the living walls form the backdrop for a tranquil and relaxing place for residents and their guests to unwind. Living walls have also been proven to improve air quality, cool urban areas, and increase biodiversity.The lighting scheme was designed by Hoare Lee to bring the wall to life in the evening.Design and Project ManagementBiotecture were first approached by Charlgrove Properties in 2020. Squire and Partners and Farrer Huxley Landscape Architects had a clear vision for what they wanted. Our design and project management team were able to take the project forward, advising on technical requirements and producing drawings.Selection of Plant PalletteAll plants used in Biotecture’s living walls are selected from Biotecture’s plant database to suit the local climatic conditions, including aspect, wind conditions and shade. Level 75 is the UK’s highest living wall, and the roof terrace is open to the elements. The plants were selected to withstand high exposure to sunlight and wind.The plant selection is mainly hardy and robust evergreen plants with dashes of colour creating a naturalistic background overlaid with bursts of seasonal interest.HorticultureOur BioPanel system incorporates Grodan as a growing medium. It is dimensionally stable, chemically inert, and supremely water efficient making it ideal for living walls. The living walls were planted up in our West Sussex Nursery and allowed to mature for 12 weeks before being installed on site. This ensured the living walls looked fantastic from day one. The living walls include an integrated irrigation system which is being remotely monitored from Biotecture’s head office.InstallationThe fully planted up BioPanels were fixed to aluminum cladding rails mounted onto a waterproof backing board. The team worked closely with Chalegrove to ensure the living walls were delivered to the required schedule.MaintenanceOur living wall system gives the plants the best opportunity to flourish, and our maintenance operatives know how to keep them that way. Our team will carry out regular horticultural visits to keep the walls looking their best.Photos by Oliver Dixon, courtesy of Chalegrove Properties

The Strand - wall-top seating and planters

The Strand - wall-top seating and planters

Furnitubes International Ltd

The Strand Aldwych is a busy public area well-known as a procession route between Westminster Abbey and St Paul's Cathedral. The area was historically plagued by traffic and pollution, so people were reluctant to dwell for long periods of time.The newly pedestrianised area with stone walls already in place needed public seating outside St Clement Danes Church. Coordinating the wall shape with the stone underneath was imperative, and access was needed to the lighting drivers through the platforms since the stone underneath is illuminated with LEDs. With this in mind, our design team worked collaboratively to develop a bespoke version of our modular RailRoad seating design, based on the principles where interchangeable parts can be easily removed or replaced. A RailRoad wall-top solution was created with a custom curve to match the stone walls, and the platforms have removable hatches for access when needed.The bespoke RailRoad seating solution is manufactured from our triple processed (recycled) steel and powder coated in a distinct metallic copper finish - while the iroko timbers were coated with UV protective finish in teak to maintain their natural look. This project focused on improving air quality, and our AKRI retaining planters were ideal for bringing green into the space. Their flexibility also allowed for matching the geometry of the adjacent stone benches and roads. In order to prevent damage, welded anti skates were incorporated into the solution.The project not only provides health and well-being benefits with the new public landscaped areas, it will preserve the historic character and for the first time allow people to appreciate the nearby listed buildings. The new inclusive seating spaces for people to mix in are seen to be well used as people can enjoy their lunch, meet with friends and colleagues and simply enjoy a sense of community.

The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston

The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston

Vanceva

The new addition of the Museum of Fine Arts Houston (MFAH) boasts an unusual treasure – natural light. Daylight is dynamic and can change the brightness and color of art, making artificial lighting a frequent choice of museums. This is why cultural arts buildings tend to be devoid of glass walls and windows. But Stephen Holl Architects, who designed the new addition, had a distinctly different idea. Using an ingenious system of laminated, translucent glass tubes on the outside walls of the buildings, they found a way to control the light coming in, while protecting the priceless classical art inside. Punched openings in the weather wall are opaque and offer a different experience of light behind the glass tubes. Daylight also flows in from clerestory glazing, making the experience of visiting a naturally lit museum completely unique. At night, the glass tubes glow with a soft artificial light, creating a luminous streetscape.The museum was extended by new two building complexes, now called the Kinder Building. With the placement of the museum in the heart of Houston's Museum District — surrounded by iconic buildings, including Mies van der Rohe's existing Museum building — the design had to be a showpiece.Working collaboratively with Holl Architects and façade specialists Josef Gartner, German glass façade experts Knippers Helbig began work on creating the glass tubes. The design called for a "cool jacket facade" — a ventilated facade structure consisting of approximately 1,150 translucent glass tubes with a length of up to 6.50m. Almost the entire building is wrapped with translucent glass tubes, which are located in front of opaque walls and large punched windows. A steel substructure with an invisible structural glazing connection supports the tubes.The glass tubes have an acid-etched surface on the outside with four translucent Vanceva® Arctic Snow PVB interlayers, which precisely control the amount of daylight passing through them. The success of this project relied heavily on the meticulous selection of materials and forms, as well as through countless daylight simulations and mock-ups. During the Construction Documents Phase, a full-scale mockup was built to measure daylight transmission. Over several months, temperatures were measured on the tubes with the results used in detailed thermal and structural analysis.The tight bending radius of the glass tubes meant that they could only be produced with gravitational bending. A series of tests were performed to ensure the load-bearing capacity of the glass. In addition to the architectural and daylight-control functions, the Vanceva PVB interlayers in the glass tubes also significantly contribute to the reduction of the energy transmission and the associated cooling loads. The PVB interlayers provide a high degree of safety. If a portion of the wall would be impacted, the glass would stay intact. “With translucent interlayers, the desired light transmission can be precisely fine-tuned to what was essential on this museum project,” according to Roman Schieber, Associate Director at Knippers Helbig, who led the glass façade portion project. “Unlike clear glass, translucent glass is visible and results in a totally different and fascinating perception of the space.”Such a rare combination of natural light and fine art is already highly anticipated in the arts world. The Rich and Nancy Kinder Building is expected to open in the fall of 2020.
