My Projects final lighting plans   This time when I made the reflected ceiling lighting plans, I made sure to choose the luminaires I wanted to use for my project, and that way, I could calculate the number of luminaires I would need for a specific area within the space. The plans below are my […]

This week we were working on our reflected ceiling lighting plans. The plans below are my second draught; I know I want to include downlights and a honeycomb-shaped Luminaire with an opal acrylic diffuser. But at this point, I haven’t calculated how many I’ll exactly need; the luminaire in these plans are a rough estimate […]

  We were visited by a company called Stoane Lighting, which is a Scottish lighting product manufacturer. They gave a presentation which discussed how their company tackles electrical waste and the circular economy. The luminaires they manufacture can be taken apart piece by piece; this way they can replace any faulty parts instead of throwing […]

Calculating the Illuminance and Lux   This week we were asked to calculate the illuminance of the Chapel of Saint Albert. To do this, we were given an area of 162 square metres and were told to base these calculations on this and as if 8 luminaires were used. We looked at three different luminaires […]

We were tasked to work in groups to create a gnomon (projecting piece on a sundial graph that shows the time by the position of its shadow). My group consisted of Kelly and Fina. To do this, we used a sundial diagram; however, a sundial itself, is the most ancient type of timekeeping equipment, denoting […]

Edinburgh Portrait Gallery   This week we visited the Edinburgh Portrait Gallery. We were asked to look at the different light fittings and study how and in which ways they were used. When lighting is involved in a heritage building, energy conservation is key. This is why the Edinburgh Portrait Gallery was lit using track […]

Daylight Factor   This week, we visited the Chapel of St Albert the Great in Edinburgh, Scotland, as we were tasked to calculate the daylight factor using a light metre app that detects and measures illuminance in lux. The lecture highlighted how daylight and sunlight are different and how we have a temporary climate, so […]
