Northern Light installs production lighting, sound and comms at Young Vic

Northern Light installs production lighting, sound and communications systems at London's Young Vic

The Young Vic was originally founded in 1970 by Sir Laurence Olivier for the benefit of younger members of his newly formed National Theatre Company. Built as a temporary space with an intended lifespan of just five years, the theatre finally closed in 2004 for refurbishment, reopening in 2006 - on schedule and on budget.

Northern Light were awarded the contract for the complete installation of production lighting, sound and communications systems by main contractor Verry. The scope of work included containment, cabling infastructure, specialist manufacturing, installation and commissioning of all lighting, sound and communications systems.

Castlemilk Lighting Project

Castlemilk Lighting Project by Northern Light

Northern Light designs architectural lighting system for Castlemilk Lighting Project in Glasgow

A regeneration for the Castlemilk area of Glasgow resulted in an Northern Light installation which utilises cutting edge technology to run three tower blocks into a weather beacon for the 21st century.

Working for Glasgow Housing Association, Northern Light collaborated with Collective Architecture to develop the design concept and create a striking installation which has a minimal impact on the environment.

Northern Light installed LED lighting technology in the northerly stairwells of each of the three, 20-storey, high rises and put in place a control system which utilises internet RSS feeds to create a visual representation of weather conditions - outlook, wind direction and temperature - on each tower block.

The project resulted in Northern Light and Collective Architecture becoming finalists in the 2010 Lighting Design Awards.
