UK - Five high profile buildings around the UK were lit with Anolis fixtures in the recent #LightItInRed lighting action organised to draw attention to the special requirements of live performance, entertainment and events as the economy re-starts after the coronavirus lockdown.
The five – the O2 Guildhall and the Mayflower Theatre both in Southampton, Waddesdon Manor in Buckinghamshire, Knebworth House in Hertfordshire and Somerset House in The Strand, central London – all feature permanent Anolis lighting schemes to illuminate their facades and intricate architectural details.
O2 Guildhall Southampton: Opened in 1937, the main concert / show venue in this building is now managed by the Academy Music Group and it is – normally – one of the most popular live music showcases on the UK theatre / town hall touring circuit. The exterior is lit with Anolis ArcSource 96 integrals and ArcPad 94s, supplied via Sera Technologies.
Mayflower Theatre, Southampton: The front façade of the grade II listed 2,300 capacity Mayflower Theatre built in 1928 is illuminated with three Anolis Divine 160 RGBW fixtures and 10 x ArcSource Outdoor 24MC RGBWs
Knebworth House: Four high powered Anolis Divine 160 RGBWs and an ArcSource Outdoor 48MC RGBW illuminate the front and one side façades of this English country house which was transformed into its current Tudor Gothic structure between 1843-45 by Henry Edward Kendall Jr. An additional ArcSource Outdoor 48MC Integral unit lights the refurbished tower. All the fixtures are positioned at ground level washing across the gravel driveway.
Waddesdon Manor: A French Renaissance-style château set in the heart of Buckinghamshire. The Anolis lighting installation has been in place since 2015 and highlights the exceptional architectural details of the Manor, designed by French architect Gabriel-Hippolyte Destailleur in the style of the chateaux of the Loire Valley.
Somerset House: A large Anolis installation comprising over 150 fixtures was designed by Patrick Woodroffe and installed back in 2009. This has been transforming the evening ambience of the Edmond J Safra Fountain Court – the hub of the spectacular neoclassical building – with a classic warm white illumination on the facades as the signature colour. Patrick’s design introduced – for the first time at this location – the potential of bathing the buildings in a rich medley of colours, adding a theatrical dimension for corporate and themed events.
