Michael Jones Associates has acted as electrical design engineers for a lighting project at St Mary’s University College.
The firm specified Sill Lighting to illuminate the façade and alter of the grade II listed building in Twickenham.
After the construction of a modern glass building adjacent to the chapel, the lighting scheme on the exterior of the building was required to make the traditional chapel prominent.
The final exterior lighting scheme used 2 Sill 484 recessed uplighters with 70w lamps to illuminate the arched doorway leading into the building, and four Sill 490 luminaires in ground recessed housings with 150w lamps for controlled illumination of the building exterior. Two Sill 491 power projectors with 150w lamps were used to illuminate the stain glass window archway from the building’s exterior.
The interior lighting design used two Sill 495 power projectors with 400w lamps positioned in the interior of the building to illuminate the stain glass window from behind, highlighting its exterior appearance. Two 70w and two 150w Sill 491 power projectors were used to light the altar and wall mural inside the chapel.
