About this project
The old Horlicks factory site in Slough, has recently been renovated by Berkeley Homes into modern housing.
The old iconic 46-metre-high chimney remains and is a focal beacon of light for the new community.
Working in collaboration with Light Bureau who created the lighting design, we provided a full turnkey solution to dynamically illuminate the chimney.
The brief was to evenly illuminate the length of the chimney, from a single position at its base.
However, due to the height of the chimney, standard grazing from a linear fixture would not meet the brief.
Our solution involved stacking two rows of our Stripline 69 high output linear products in tandem and utilising two different beam patterns to create the even illumination from top to bottom.
We also created bespoke adjustable arm brackets that allowed the fittings to be tilted to direct the light upwards.
