Gunw­harf Quays is one of the lar­gest desi­gner outlet centres in the south of England and is loca­ted in the heart of Ports­mouth, right by the har­bour. As well as over 90 stores and more than 30 res­tau­rants, it also houses a cinema com­plex, a bow­ling alley and an art gal­lery. The his­to­ric sur­roun­dings of the har­bour, inclu­ding the Natio­nal Museum of the Royal Navy, also make it centre a popu­lar des­ti­na­tion for tou­rists. This bust­ling loca­tion was recently fitted with accent ligh­ting using Olivio Sis­tema lumi­naires.

Ports­mouth is famous for its mari­time his­tory – Richard I built a dock here for royal gal­leys as far back as the 12th cen­tury. Around 1500, it became the site of Portsmouth’s defence works and, in the 17th cen­tury, Gunw­harf was used for the main arse­nal. In 1923 the site was taken over by the Royal Marines, for whom it served as a base until 1986. After the Royal Marines left, it was taken over by Ports­mouth City Coun­cil, who deci­ded to use it to enhance the attrac­ti­ve­ness of the city, the­reby increa­sing the number of visi­tors. The goal was to moder­nise the city centre and open up the sea front to the public, crea­ting jobs in the pro­cess.

During the construc­tion of the centre, which was plan­ned by HGP archi­tects, new bench­marks were set for eco­logy. Gunw­harf Quays is powe­red by one of the lar­gest solar cells sur­face areas in Europe and has its own recy­cling centre. For illu­mi­na­tion of the foot­paths and the spa­cious squares around the shop­ping centre, the ligh­ting plan­ners at BDP have chosen Olivio Medio lumi­naires. Using Sis­tema 1 arms, seve­ral Olivio Medio lumi­naires have been arran­ged around tape­red steel poles at angles of bet­ween 0° and 360° ensu­ring opti­mal light dis­tri­bu­tion at this popu­lar loca­tion.

  • Un système d’éclairage moderne se doit d’incorporer les toutes dernières technologies de pointe, dans un respect évident d’efficacité et de conformité aux nouvelles normes environnementales. Parallèlement, l’éclairage urbain a besoin de flexibilité et de polyvalence afin de satisfaire les exigences de la vie urbaine moderne, dans laquelle les citoyens ont besoin de se réapproprier les espaces publics. Un éclairage adapté permet de donner une identité nocturne propre à la ville et de créer des atmosphères agréables. Cette réflexion a guidé le développement de toute la gamme Olivio, des luminaires de mise en valeur qui allient modularité, esthétique, fonctionnalité et intégration parfaite à l’environnement.
