Streatham High Road, the longest High Road in the United Kingdom, is now illuminated via a series of buildings with interactive lighting designed by Michael Grubb Studio and developed in conjunction with local community groups.
The buildings included in this phase of the project include the newly renovated Tate Library, The White Lion, Pratts and Payne, The Locarno (now the Bingo Hall) and a series of residential domes.
The project aims to be the first steps towards an ‘internet of things’ high street, where all the lighting is connected. The hope being that surrounding buildings, businesses and community groups will join the initiative in the future.
