The Old Theatre – Battersea

The Old Theatre

The Old Theatre is a spectacular residential property, hidden away in a secluded part of Battersea, which once formed the main part of a Victorian theatre. The recent conversion by Douglas & King is an impressive architectural achievement, notably the main reception room which is the site of the theatre’s former stage. The Flairlight designed specialist lighting system (which runs throughout the house) aptly illuminates this double height reception room with high-level theatre spotlights on a gantry system, in an echo of the room’s past.

Design elements used

LEDFlairlight LED uplights were used to create a subtle colour wash 300mm up the brickwork and to provide a light guidance enticing entry.
lumianiresFlairlight recessed assymetrical mains voltage luminaires were used to wash the stair treads with glare free illumination, providing warm colour and crisp halogen colour rendering.
Camera_SpotlightsSolid ceilings required a surface mounted lighting solution, therefore Flairlight mains dimmable track and camera spots were chosen to deliver a gallery feel whilst also linking with the old theatre image.
Recessed_Multi_LampFlairlight Recessed Multi Lamp Low Voltage fittings were selected to provide a controllable dimmable high output light source to provide strong focused adjustable ambient lighting, providing good colour rendition enhanced by clean line aesthetics.
Stage_LightingFlairlight Stage Lighting Surface Mounted Projectors were chosen to provide additional spot lighting. The fitting was chosen in keeping with the Old Theatre heritage of the property, whilst providing latest technology light source. Barn Doors and curly cable were fitted to enhance the visual appearance.
Flairlight_Bespoke_Shower_LightFlairlight needed to provide illumination to the shower area. As the roof/ceiling was made of glass and the walls were rustic brick, recessing cables was not an option, so we provided an ingenious solution by threading 80 fibre optic tails into a square shower head and housed the control box within the shower wall central partition. This was a unique proposition to a problem which provided a fantastic lighting solution. Spare fibre optic tails were then used between the tiles, bed into the grout to create a line of light emitting diodes adding to the brilliance and unique design of the project.
