GRAND VIEW CENTRAL
HEATHROW AIRPORT TERMINAL 5
Harrods Grand View Central, a 20,000sq.ft retail experience where the interior was designed by Fitch Worldwide.
The lighting design concept was developed around two nine metre diameter ‘light domes’ each using 6500 Philips SSL’s LEDs recessed into the huge curved panels of gypsum. The concept was to create 'skyscapes' with moving clouds and then having the ability to create saturated colours for seasonal retail promotions.
The ceiling concept had to deal with essential smoke extract requirements but the design that was developed managed to create the illusion of solid ceilings with light troughs concealing recessed lighting tracks and spotlights.
The vision is a glare free environment where the lighting enhances the product and brand identity in a discreet and well designed manner.
