Galerie Balice Hertling
On the occasion of its tenth anniversary, Galerie Balice Hertling decided to celebrate it’s tenth anniversary by opening a second space in Paris, located at 239 Rue Saint-Martin, within walking distance of the Centre Pompidou within the Marais district. The gallery is home to many exhibitions all year round and therefore the client requested a lighting system and design that would require minimal maintenance and focusing under a strict budget.
Match carried out the lighting design putting the clients needs at the forefront, whilst ensuring the final scheme was inspiring yet fit for purpose. The result was a beautifully lit space addressing the unique qualities of the gallery to maximize the potential of the exhibitors masterpiece’s.

Herbal House is an office development located in Clerkenwell, London. The original building dates from 1928 and was used by the Daily Mirror newspaper as their print press headquarters. One of the main aims of the project has been to celebrate the heritage and character of the building, where original brickwork and stone detailing have been repaired and refurbished.
Match designed the lighting to the main reception and waiting area to compliment the industrial art deco inspired concept whilst assisting the client to choose the more decorative lights to ensure a coherent yet cost compliant scheme. Elegant yet subtle spotlights were located onto the exposed concrete ceilings. Above the internal staircase suspends a beautifully designed ring of lights chandelier to capture the visitor’s attention and offers a stunning visual feature complimentary to the whole reception design. The lighting design and details were been carefully planned at each stage to ensure they were successful implementation by the contractor.

Full refurbishment of a student accommodation in Barbican that involved the complete remodelling of all 248 existing student bedrooms and all common and exterior spaces.
The new work delivered a modern “city living” feel with high quality materials, lighting and bespoke FF&E, all working within the existing room sizes, with value added through creating new studios and “twodios” in previously oversized cluster flats.
The key challenge faced by the design and construction team was meeting the strict completion deadline, with the works successfully completed in only 20 weeks.
Match were appointed as lighting consultants to work in close collaboration with the Design Team and Contractor to design and deliver the lighting for the reception, break out and exterior common areas, as well as for the various different types of bedrooms and studios, rolled out by contractor Thomas Sinden throughout the whole project.
