This major new theatre is now the home of the Northern Symphonia Chamber Orchestra and also provides a focus for a range of musical and community based activities.
The approach to the lighting design reinforces the distinctive architectural form the The Sage, working with the vertical and horizontal rhythms inherent across the building.
Also, specific, indirect lighting arrangements were developed for the Sage interior, to help preserve the sweeping lines of the internal ‘shell’ of the building. The Sage is now a major part of the Gateshead cityscape during both day and evening times.
