The Queen’s Terminal (Terminal 2) at Heathrow international airport in London is an ambitious architectural sustainability project covering a surface area of approx. 200,000m². The project, which cost around three million euros, was awarded the Lighting Design Award 2015 by The Institution of Lighting Professionals and The Society of Light and Lighting in the category “Public building of the Year” and will handle up to 20 million airline passengers per year.
In cooperation with the lighting planners at the Fractal Lighting Design studio, Selux developed functional and safe lighting for the highly-frequented areas of the Queen’s Terminal. Vandal-proof M125x90 and M200x70 luminaires ensure optimal lighting in various entrance and passage areas at night time.
Dimmable Selux luminaires complete the sustainable lighting concept. The vivid daylight, which flows through the extensive glass façades and semi-transparent, corrugated roof construction into the airy, spacious interior, is supplemented by the intelligent, digitally controlled artificial light – with the aim of reducing CO2 emissions by an estimated 40% compared to the old terminal building.
