St. Clement’s Church
Looking to enhance the identity of London’s St. Clement’s Church, which lays tucked away in Finsbury’s Kings Square, Islington Council worked with Architainment Lighting Ltd to implement a low-energy, low-maintenance lighting system.
Architainment specified a range of LED fittings to meet the council’s environmental and financial requirements and these were then installed by Wishbone Electrical to illuminate St. Clement’s portico, church tower, spire and clock. For the spire and portico, Architainment supplied Philips Color Kinetics eW Blast Powercore an LED floodlight with a high-intensity wash of white light while. This fixture provides low energy consumption and long lifetime, resulting in zero maintenance. For the side recesses, Philips Color Kinetics eW Graze Powercore was fitted. This linear lighting fixture is perfect for surface grazing and wall-washing applications and available in any combination of eight colour temperatures (2700 K – 6500 K). The building’s balustrade was back lit with LED Linear’s VarioLED Apollo IP67, a low-profile IP67 protected LED luminaire that is easily concealed.
The project was funded by EC1 New Deal for Communities, with support from Islington Council.
