Outernet – St Giles Circus

Inspired by iconic city locations resembling Times Square and Piccadilly Circus, St Giles Circus is set to become an internationally recognised entertainment destination bringing communities together while preserving its historic characteristics.

LPA worked collaboratively with Skanska to deliver Buro Happold’s lighting concept with a range of customer-specific products and lighting solutions. The vision was to create a vibrant, striking and distinctive lighting design to be illuminated at night with an RGBW colour scheme. While the variable colour scheme was used to suit different event and performance requirements, the natural white light offered the perfect complement to the gold metallic façade for its day-to-day operations. The colour scheme would provide the building with a unique charm to be identified as a cultural and entertainment venue.
