The new lighting project for Conway Square, coordinated by AECOM and part of a wider urban regeneration project for the city of Newtownards, met the client’s brief of reinstating the square’s status as the city’s meeting point and vital centre.
Chroma Lighting designed a lighting scheme for the general and diffused lighting of the square. They identified certain points that they wanted to highlight, such as the central part of the town hall façade, which is also home to the “Ards Arts Centre”, the seating area and the clock tower.
The technical solutions employed to achieve the desired effect consist of columns created specifically for this project, on which Woody and Miniwoody projectors were installed. A combination of 4000 K white light and RGB luminaires focusing their beams onto the square and the main façade of the town hall, were used to integrate the chiaroscuro effect created by the Linealuce
recessed luminaires installed at the base of the central part of the town hall. Mini Linealuce luminaires were used in front of the building to illuminate the seating area, whilst Light Up recessed luminaires were installed around the square to highlight the trees in the flowerbeds. The project was completed with Street luminaires installed on poles to illuminate the path around the square.
