Future Designs lights Citypoint
Built in 1967 and originally named Britannic House, Citypoint is an iconic Barbican building. Spanning
600,000 sq.ft over 35 floors, and standing 122 metres tall it was the headquarters for British Petroleum,
Citypoint before the building was acquired by Brookfield in December 2016.
Working along BDG Architecture + Design, FUTURE Designs developed a lighting solution that would complete the exposed ceilings.
The linear VANE fitting is consistent across the open plan working area, punctuated with the circular HALO to break the pattern whilst enhancing the street presence of the building. Whilst, BEEM, which is a standard downlight product has been adapted to integrate with the black, wire mesh, feature ceiling.
“Brookfield has refurbished and rejuvenated this impressive building and the lighting provided by the team at FUTURE Designs has been an integral part of transforming the space to now meet the demands of the modern occupier,” comments Martin Wallice, head of leasing at Brookfield.
