Michael Grubb Studio has significant experience providing Lighting Designs for heritage projects, such as castles, religious buildings and other historical sites.
All heritage projects commence by understanding the history and architectural hierarchy of the project. This appreciation of the past inspires a narrative and story which, in turn, influences the development of the Lighting Scheme. We see the potential for creating drama and excitement through the lighting, without distracting from the building heritage itself.
As the project progresses, we implement lighting demonstrations to help clients, stakeholders and design team members learn about the journey and understand our lighting proposals.
We respect the historic fabric of any building, or structure, and pride ourselves in ensuring it is preserved for future generations. This requires close collaboration with our client and relevant experts to ensure the project’s integrity.
We understand the approval process and have experience working in partnership with English Heritage and other organisations when it comes to obtaining permissions.
We fully understand the need to make the heritage lighting project as cost efficient as possible and are always aware that running costs and future maintenance needs to be controlled and minimised.
