In skilled hands, lighting enhances, sculpts and inspires. It can also influence well being.
Lighting at Arup brings together art, science and technology. Our truly global team of designers create expressive, sustainable and award-winning concepts in light. We understand the interplay of structural form and lighting, and work with architects and artists to provide original conceptual designs. Our technical knowledge ensures that concepts become viable solutions.
We also know how lighting affects people at work, at home, at school and at play – not just inside but for outside spaces too. This equips us to shape solutions that are as positive for people as they are sustainable for the environment and for businesses.
Arup helps clients think about lighting strategically – whether their goal is to use the visual and emotional impact of light to strengthen brand experiences or to lower carbon emissions and save on energy bills.
We bring excellence to the design of the most challenging lighting schemes, such as world-class sporting venues, where lighting quality is critical so that the broadcast media doesn’t miss a trick.
Designing with daylight
Natural light can enhance architecture, improve the way people feel and reduce our reliance on electricity.
Arup is an acknowledged leader in day lighting – our team brings together the best in creative and scientific thinking. Our analysis of the affects of natural light is precise, while our design ability sees us working closely with such architects as Renzo Piano and Herzog & de Meuron.
In museums and galleries, our skill in using daylight theatrically comes to the fore. Our celebrated lighting designs for the New Acropolis Museum and Art Institute of Chicago show how sophisticated manipulation of natural light can create drama without sacrificing the sensitivity required in lighting valuable exhibits.
Façades that engage
The interaction of light with a building’s skin influences both interior environment and outward expression.
We work closely with building physicists and façade engineers to understand and control interior lighting and solar heat-gain in the daytime. At night, when light defines a building’s signature, we use lighting designs and media façades to stunning effect. Our approach encases corporate identity and brand image in clean and neatly finished detail, thoroughly customised for each client.
In Beijing, Arup used LED lighting and photovoltaic arrays in the GreenPix zero-energy media wall, an interactive façade that produces twice the energy it consumes. In Abu Dhabi, our lighting helped create a landmark night-sky profile for the Yas Hotel.
Light that works in context
Lighting guides us, and directs our attention. It makes our cities vibrant and our streets safer. On the other hand, too much of the wrong kind of light becomes unwanted ‘light pollution’ and inflates our energy use.
Arup brings thoughtful approaches to lighting into master plans to create places that work better for people. We think of lighting in its functional and cultural roles in urban renewal plans such as the Heart of Doha. We also consider how lighting defines a new place, as in New Songdo City.
