The external lighting for the façade of this veterinary practice, Newton Clarke, was to be minimal, appealing and dynamic, whilst also sensitive to ecology and low in maintenance. The lighting scheme was carefully modelled using 3D lighting software to ensure that light spill was minimised, and the dominant light cast downwards to ensure the permitter of the building is well lit, without creating excessive light pollution in this sleepy Dorset village. The lighting design paid particular attention to the range of materials used to clad the façade of the building. All the lighting is installed on digital controls to switch on at sunset for a limited time period. The architecture has been designed by Reed Holland and the rendered images are also courtesy of Reed Holland.
