The Oxford Martin School is interdisciplinary research school where leading academics undertake research into the problems of the 21st century, from climate change to fuel poverty. A number of LED & T5 luminaires from Wila Lighting were specified not only to enable a light and inspiring environment for the users but the selection of luminaires was also important in contributing to the building’s sustainability credentials whilst being sympathetic to the existing beautiful architecture.
WILA supplied a number of the luminaires on the project for various areas including the 160-seater lecture theatre, cafe area and the main BAND Pendant Halo LED luminaires which are installed throughout the entrance area, corridors, pod offices and open plan office areas. 2 - 3W/m2/100 lux depending on whether recessed or suspended. The BAND luminaires are featured throughout and create striking visuals as you navigate through the building.
Within the Lecture Theatre and Open plan office areas the LINIC LED luminaires were installed as continuous profiles finished in an antique bronze colour. This is a high performance slim line linear fitting which can be recessed, surface mounted or pendant, supplied with either an opal or micro-prismatic diffuser and can be manufactured to meet specific lengths. The result is a high quality installation balancing the existing architecture with a sympathetic design.
