contributed by Kirsten_Hannema

The Dalston Culture House in London is an example of a project in which a relatively simple lighting system is used for a variety of purposes: to brand the building and its surroundings, to support its cultural function and to provide street lighting for the adjacent square. The building is occupied by the Vortex Jazz Club and is the focal point of Gillett Square, a new pedestrianized area designed by architects Hawkins/Brown. This public space is intended to become a social meeting point and cultural hub for the neighbourhood and it may also be used for outdoor events. The Culture House serves as the background for all these activities. Clad in a translucent polycarbonate, the walls are backlit by fluorescent battens, the colours of which can change to suit the music of the day, emphasizing the square's dynamic character. At the same time the bright façade gives the place a sense of identity, marking its central position within the large-scale modernization of this neighbourhood.
