Winner of the Best Lighting & Fixturing Award at the RetailWeek Interiors Awards 2017
The high street giant Topshop has opened their biggest store outside of London. The Topshop in the Trafford Centre, Manchester, represents the latest in their store design and certainly in the lighting design.
Second in size only to the Oxford Circus branch, the new flagship spans two floors. The store welcomes shoppers through two large entrance porticos, with a sloping architectural canopy and integrated LED lighting channel.
360° viewable display windows divide the large open entrances and so promote clear vistas into the store. Due to the depth of the store, artificial skylights above the window structure ease the transition deeper into the space. In order to represent daylight, LAPD used 6500K colour temperature to create pockets of cool light.
A warmer, 3000K light illuminates the main store environment. We used a variety of LED fixtures due to the variety of ceiling heights and treatments. A family of recessed, semi-recessed and track mounted lights utilising the same LED technology help the visual continuity between the ground floor rafted ceiling and the exposed first-floor ceiling.
