LiteLED illuminates Leeds City Gateway

Oct. 29, 2009
Date Announced: 29 Oct 2009 After hours of hard work, bespoke design and technical challenges on the Neville Street site, it is with a great sense of pride that we can now stand back and view this project as a completed application. As a key part of the Holbeck urban village development, the Light Neville Street project has been designed to provide a new, exciting, welcoming gateway to the city of Leeds. Having teamed up with artist Hans Peter Kuhn, Bauman Lyons Architects, ARUP Consultants, Saferoad BLG and Leeds City Council nearly four years ago, it is testament to the hard work and dedication of all parties that this project known as 'A Sound and Light Transit' is now complete and fully operational for the public view.

The vision for Neville Street was the same. Aesthetically pleasing and market leading LED technology that we, and more importantly the people of Leeds can be proud of. The lighting scheme on the East Wall features custom built pixels which disperse light, cold white in colour from Luxeon Rebel LEDs via an injection moulded light pipe. The pixels have been housed in bespoke anodised aluminium wall panels in a matrix format. Through DMX control, the lighting scheme will change every 24hours, to achieve an artistic lighting effect. The West Wall employs the power and durability of a custom L-Series Luminaire. The L-Series Luminaire’s are IP67 rated and use narrow beam optics and a dimming system to achieve moiré effect. We feel privileged to have been involved in such a complex and prominent project in our progressive and ever changing home city of Leeds. This isn’t our first large scale project and it certainly won’t be our last, so you if have any ideas with regards to LED based applications and you would like to explore the possibilities further then please feel free to contact us on 0113 2713030 or email [email protected]. Video note: Due to council planning permission and contractual agreement with the artist, the visual effects are static scenes on the finished project. This video is a demonstration of the projects capabilities using addressed PX1 pixels via DMX 512.
