UK - The new Flower Bowl Complex in Preston has recently installed Anolis’s Ambiane LED RGBW downlights.
The lighting scheme brings colour and vibrance to this three-cinema screen complex, part of a new multi entertainment and leisure destination concept developed by the team behind Barton Grange Garden Centre, designed to entice customers to spend more time having fun in one space.
The single storey building has an undulating ‘living’ grass roof designed to blend into the surrounding countryside. It is a ‘mixed leisure’ venue which offers three premium cinema screens, a four-ice sheet curling rink, an 8-lane ten-pin bowling alley, golf simulators and several food and restaurant outlets.
Russell Winteridge, general manager for Barton Grange and MD Guy Topping contacted Anolis and asked if they could design and supply a colour-changing and sustainable lighting system for the cinema screens.
Phil Howard, Anolis’ business development manager for the Northern region commented, “We’d been in touch with the client previously and quoted for lighting at the garden centre. They were impressed in particular by the quality and potential of the colour mixing fixtures in the Anolis ranges.”
Ambiane is a new product from Anolis which came onstream at a perfect time for the Flower Bowl project.
The client liked the smooth colour mixing, the striking bold saturates and the delicate pastel ranges that Ambiane can achieve. They were impressed by the even light coverage and smooth 18-bit dimming which fades seamlessly down to zero. This enables the subtle fade up and downs required for the start and end of each film.
The Ambiane’s emergency backup facility runs from a secondary power input connected to the central battery system, so no additional emergency light fixtures were needed.
Each of the three cinemas has 12 Ambianes recessed in the ceiling which are tagged by colours rather than numbers. They are set up to match the required lux levels of CIBSE cinema guidelines and illuminate the room and the screen beautifully in its designated colour.
