A key part of the client brief for this project was to to turn a section of the canal that was active and frequently utilized by the public during day time, into a similarly functional environmental resource during night time. This portion of the canal is also a busy and well used commuter route.
The lighting response involved three specific treatments – The improvement of ambient illumination, the introduction of feature lighting to the area around Camden Lock, and bringing feature lighting to the canal bridges.
The completed project now provides a safe night time environment that is vibrant, attractive and enjoys extended hours of use, by both the local population and visitors to this area of London.
Partners: The London Borough of Camden
