A variety of LED luminaires from Zumtobel form part of a major refurbishment opt the 19 000 m2 H1 office facility, formerly known as Seafield House, in Aberdeen. Lighting controls and emergency lighting from Zumtobel have also been installed.

The refurbishment includes a new multi-function reception area with the feel of a New York loft apartment — with steel grey posts, wooden floors and a Hunter Douglas wooden ceiling. The outer walls incorporate large floor-to-ceiling glass windows that further enhance the feeling of space.

Zumtobel’s Slotlight Infinity LED was chosen for the reception and lift-lobby area as it creates a continuous flow of light with no shadows that complements the design of the space. Slotlight Infinity has been recessed into the linear wood-panel reception ceiling to provide an eye-catching, streamlined strip of uniform light.

Also included in the project was the main office floor, with recessed Mellowlight V LED 600 mm-square fittings incorporating daylight controls. Panos Q square LED downlights were installed in the office breakout areas and toilets.

All lighting controls are Zumtobel’s Litecom, an APP-based lighting management control system.

Emergency lighting is provided by Resclite, Artsign and Puresign fittings.
