Located between Shoreditch and the City, the landmark Triton Court building on Finsbury Square has been transformed into a major new workspace - Alphabeta. The development, which is set over nine storeys and comprises 20,000 m2, features a dynamic atrium and a ‘ride-in’ cycle ramp.
Hoare Lea Lighting developed the lighting concept in conjunction with the project architecture team at Studio RHE. Led by Dickon Hayward, (winner of the RIBA London Project Architect of the Year Award for Alphabeta) the concept was designed from the ground-up, with Hoare Lea Lighting working closely with Studio RHE to understand the space and its requirements from an architectural lighting perspective.
Central to the lighting scheme was the careful consideration of the interior’s deliberate architectural idiosyncrasies. Using integrated and hidden sources wherever possible, the design complements the clean, seemingly effortless architectural approach. Ultimately for Hoare Lea, the design was about enhancing and working with the unusual and exciting character of the post-industrial space.
