‘The Springs’ Retail Destination at Thorpe Park in Leeds

Over the past few years, Studiotech have collaborated on numerous projects alongside Wakefield based architectural practice, The Harris Partnership.  The practice was responsible for the design of the new retail and leisure destination ‘The Springs’ at Thorpe Park in Leeds.

Their concept included a full feature lighting scheme to the exterior of the buildings and throughout the public realm.

Studiotech took the proposals provided by the architects and designed a deliverable and achievable scheme within budget.  There were a number of areas that Studiotech took responsibility for, the most obvious and eye-catching being the bespoke catenary lighting suspended above the public realm.

The catenary lighting required a specialist solution which Studiotech were more than capable of providing.  Each stainless steel catenary cable was manufactured to an exact length and was fixed to the buildings at positions agreed with the structural engineer.  Studiotech then mounted over 170m of RGBW strip luminaires enclosed within a flexible PVC housing to the suspended catenary system, resulting in a unique and eye-catching display of light and colour throughout the public realm.

As well as the catenary lighting, Studiotech also completed the detailed design, supply and installation of various other architectural lighting features.  This included dynamic colour changing RGBW LED to the mirror cladding, wall wash to the cinema façade, linear under soffit ambient lighting and living wall inground uplighters.

Each element links with one another to allow the entire solution to provide a continuous flow of illumination throughout the retail park, creating a vibrant atmosphere for this award-winning retail and leisure destination and its stakeholders.
