Detailed lighting concept
Pinsent Masons assigned the interior design of the “The Soloist” to local firm Todd Architects. The lighting was devised by Semple McKillop, another Belfast resident. The architects and designers were primarily concerned with ensuring optimal visual comfort at all times of the day for the employees of Pinsent Masons. ERCO luminaires are used throughout the building, from the reception area and the circulation zones to the offices and conference rooms, and even in the kitchenette and bathrooms. "We were particularly impressed by one of ERCO's strong points: compact downlights – an aesthetic and economical alternative to linear and other fluorescent lamps,” Pinsent Masons emphasises. The lighting concept, which considered each room situation specifically, uses luminaires from the Quintessence, Cylinder, Quadra, Compact and Nadir ranges. A narrow corridor between the kitchenette and a number of workstations, for instance, appears wider thanks to Quintessence lens wallwashers and their uniform washlighting across one of the walls in the corridor.
