The Swiss Garden at Shuttleworth
As part of a special five-night event, the Swiss Garden at Shuttleworth in Old Warden, UK was lit with Lumenpulse luminaires. The installation sought to put a modern twist on the garden's original features, including a grotto and fernery, which had been lit by its creator, Lord Ongley, as early as the late 1820s.
"The idea was to create a sense of magic, to use colours and interactive elements to bring back to life what we imagine was a dazzling atmosphere in this space almost two centuries ago," said Alessandra Caggiano, the Founder of e-Luminate Studio.
e-Luminate Studio placed Lumenfacade Color Changing luminaires at the foot of a huge ornamental vase directly underneath the centre of the fernery dome.
"We had a very specific vision for the grotto and fernery, as it sits at the centre of this intricate landscape. We wanted the dome to stand out and emit a reassuring and safe hue, visible from different viewpoints in the garden. The Lumenfacade luminaires enabled us to bathe the space inside and to glow a magical blue aura from the outside, just as we had imagined it," Caggiano said, adding that the project illustrated the impact a well-designed lighting plan can have on heritage sites to attract tourists at otherwise quiet times of the year.
"People loved the results achieved!"
