Media City UK, Lighting Design and Masterplanning

Media City UK is a mixed use property development located in Salford, Greater Manchester. The site was developed by Peel Media, with the first phase completing in 2011. Media City continues to expand, and is now home to a number of companies including the BBC, ITV and BUPA, as well as providing an academic establishment for the University of Salford.

Recent lighting additions include a large dynamic lighting display to the Media City UK holiday inn, completed in 2016.

The lighting design for the Media City development was completed by a team comprising of my colleague Chris Sutherland and myself whilst working at lighting design consultants Pinniger and Partners and Studiofractal. Work included lighting masterplanning, designs for bespoke lighting columns, public realm lighting and building facade lighting.
