Loca­ted in Oxford’s medie­val hear­tland, the West­gate Centre is an impor­tant shop­ping loca­tion in this sou­thern English city famous for its pre­sti­gious uni­ver­sity. The shop­ping centre was desi­gned and built bet­ween 1970 and 1972 and is today a popu­lar shop­ping and lei­sure loca­tion that, besi­des nume­rous restau­rants and cafés, also houses a cinema and a 9-hole crazy golf course. The new roof ter­race, with its view of the city, is lit using Lanova lumi­nai­res and con­sti­tu­tes a par­ti­cu­lar highlight.

The West­gate Oxford was com­pre­hen­si­vely moder­ni­sed and expan­ded during 2016 and 2017 – a pro­ject plan­ned by BDP archi­tects. The upgra­ded centre now covers a sur­face area of around 74,000 m², which has been set aside for shop­ping, restau­rants and lei­sure acti­vi­ties. Oxford City Coun­cil inve­sted around 500 mil­lion pounds in the pro­ject which, besi­des around 100 new shops, inclu­des a cinema, new foot­pa­ths, two squa­res and 59 new apart­ments as well as a bus route, taxi rank and car­park.

As part of the moder­ni­sa­tion and exten­sion, a ter­race with a bar and restau­rant has been added on the roof of the shop­ping centre that pro­vi­des a view of Oxford’s histo­ri­cal sky­line. Desi­gners at LDA have used the Lanova 250 LED lumi­naire for the lighting solu­tion here, with lumi­nai­res suspen­ded in two rows on a cable that con­nects the bar and the restau­rant, immer­sing the sea­ting areas in a plea­sant and warm light as soon as dar­k­ness falls.

  • Col suo diffusore illuminato, capace di modellare l'ambiente circostante, il moderno design tecnologico della famiglia Lanova spicca particolarmente nella notte. Questi apparecchi di illuminazione si distinguono per la forma cilindrica e sono disponibili in versione per montaggio a testa palo, a stelo o a fune. L'illuminotecnica ottimizzata assicura il massimo comfort visivo e consente di realizzare impianti di illuminazione ad altissima efficienza conformi agli standard internazionali per una vasta gamma di ambienti.
