Leeds Dock is a work, wellness and social destination designed for media, creative and digital communities. A former casino situated in the vibrant Leeds Dock, restored to a collaborative celebration of culture.
Match Lighting Studio delivered the lighting design for the main hub on Ground Floor, to include bars and seating areas for eating, drinking and interacting, as well as for the dramatic and dynamic double height space on First Floor, consisting of a range of different areas to sit, work and meet.
The lighting concept was developed to carefully balance decorative lighting features with architectural lighting details echoing an industrial decor look and feel. These included clusters of diffusing glass globes hanging from the double height ceiling, a large custom circular LED tube suspended over the kitchen counter / seating area and a custom rack with ribbed glass and integral double diffusing LED light sheets floating over the bar on Ground Floor, to provide a soft and uniform volume of light to the spaces with limited access to natural light.
