Ghost Notes

The Brief

To provide a flexible lighting solution for a multi-functional space. Ghost notes is a restaurant / cafeteria by day and a Bar / nightclub / live venue by night. The solution needed to create a comfortable atmosphere in the restaurant yet provide the right blend of dynamic and functional lighting for night-time activities.

The Installation

We fitted some RGBA LED tape into a custom made aluminium extrusion profile that we then attached to the ceiling next to the concrete beams. This way, the ceiling reflected the lights, softening the effect. We programmed the lights to change colours using a sound to light function to match the mood of the evenings. Some more LED tape was installed around the bar front to downlight it and we installed some Core Par 80s around the stage area to create a live performance space.

The Challenges

The primary stand out point was the uniqueness of the venue, an old parking lot, meaning that structurally, it was like no venue we had ever worked in.

Loose Cannon

The Brief

Already a successful London bar with a multifunction events space, the venue wanted to expand their events area to encourage even more business. As such Loose Cannon wanted an architectural lighting solution that would suit both live performances, product launches, conferences and club nights.

The Installation

In both the event space and bar area, our engineers rolled 12m WBs along the curve of the ceiling, just like ribs, whilst COLORband Pix and Slim Par 12s were used to down light the walls. This lighting design created a varied space that highlighted and enhanced the building’s architectural features.

 

Vinopolis

The Brief

As one of f London’s largest multi function venues for corporate events, being part museum, part corporate event space and part restaurant, we were asked to install all the elements of a a lighting system, that would be versatile enough to supply architectural lighting as well as a full array of event lighting. This included all the infrastructure and electrical supply.

The Installation

We installed a combination of LED architectural lighting, intelligent fixtures and a networked control system that allowed maximum flexibility and a fast turn around between one event and the next.

The Challenges

The sheer size of the venue: 4 main spaces to fit out: the auditorium, the two great arches and the gallery. our engineers transformed the bear brick space into a sophisticated cutting edge corporate venue within 6 weeks.

Troxy

The Brief

A former cinema opened in the 1930s and now a grade II listed building, Troxy was restored to its former glory following a major refit in 2007. The total capacity of the venue stands at 2,600, with a stalls area of around 800 while the upstairs balcony includes a front row of table seating for 200 VIPs, and a further 600 seats behind. Halo was asked to provide a complete lighting and rigging solution as part of the refit.

The Installation- according to Leo Batchelor, Night Magazine October 2007

Halo’s lighting installation has given the venue a full complement of Robe fixtures capable of a fantastic lightshow for both live and corporate events.

The two main trusses above the stage both include two bars of six Par 64s, two Martin Professional strobes, eight Robe 575 AT spots and eight Robe 575 AT washes as well as eight multi profile spots to project gobos onto the stalls. The rear truss has an extra four cell blinders, and the whole system is channelled through an Avo Pearl desk and a 48 channel dimmer, while a Martin Jem ZR33 smoke machine, a Le Maitre Neutron hazer and two Strand follow spots complete the installation.

With a fully kitted out stage and auditorium, a talented and committed management team and a stunning period auditorium, Troxy well deserves the hype that has surrounded its first few months of operation. Book early and beat the rush.
