Loca­ted to the south of Buc­king­ham Palace, Vic­to­ria Sta­tion is the second lar­gest train sta­tion in London after Water­loo with around 1.5 mil­lion pas­sen­gers pas­sing through it each week. Right next to this is Vic­to­ria tube sta­tion, which since 2010 has been exten­si­vely moder­ni­sed, among other things with the new Nor­thern Ticket Hall below Bres­sen­den Place. As part of this moder­ni­sa­tion, the area around the sta­tion has also been rede­s­ig­ned and enri­ched with the warm light of Selux Lanova light columns.

Vic­to­ria Sta­tion was built accor­ding to the plans of Robert Jacomb-Hood and opened in 1860. It acts an impor­tant trans­port hub, both for the many com­mu­ters from Outer London and South East Eng­land and for visi­tors to England’s capi­tal city. In addi­tion it serves as the Cen­tral London ter­mi­nus for Gat­wick Express and Gat­wick Sou­t­hern trains from Gat­wick Air­port. As a result, Vic­to­ria Sta­tion is a first port of call for many visi­tors to the capi­tal and is res­pon­si­ble for their first impres­si­ons of the mega­city.

The public space of the sta­tion fore­court illu­mi­na­ted with ele­gant light from an iconic Lanova light column by Selux. On the one hand, the optics system incor­po­ra­tes high-per­for­mance mirror optics for com­for­ta­ble anti-glare for exte­rior appli­ca­ti­ons, while on the other it pro­vi­des effi­cient and vir­tu­ally loss-free light guid­ance. The cylin­d­ri­cal shape of the lumi­nai­res and their black steel poles blend into the set­ting of the square per­fectly. The result is an open, clearly arran­ged space, which offers a high level of sojourn qua­lity for both com­mu­ters and tou­rists.

  • With its illuminated diffuser, which shapes its immediate surroundings, the modern, technical design of the Lanova family stands out during the night time. Its cylindrical shape distinguishes these luminaires, which are available in pole-top, pendant or catenary versions. Optimised light technology makes for maximum visual comfort, and enables ultra-efficient lighting schemes that conform to international standards for a wide range of environments.
