BDP lighting designer wins international award

Luke Smith-Wightman, Senior Lighting Designer at BDP picked up the award for Young Lighting Designer at the LumiVille awards ceremony held in Lyon on 27 May.

Les Trophées LumiVille is an international competition judged by representatives from LumiVille (the International Public and Exterior Lighting Fair), the French lighting designers association (ACE) and the City of Lyon.

Luke’s submission impressed the judges by focusing on his lighting design of the Stirling Prize nominated Westminster Academy. The lighting team at BDP worked closely with the architect AHMM to maximise the daylight performance of the building and create stimulating, efficient and low maintenance lighting installations. BDP designed all internal and external lighting to both the school and the new sports building, including the new sports pitches.

Of his award which included a €3,000 prize, Luke said: “I am delighted and honoured to win the ‘Jeune Concepteur’ award. The judging panel recognised the aesthetic, technical and operational quality of lighting design undertaken on Westminster Academy. This win is further confirmation of the good design work undertaken by the whole architectural and engineering team involved on the project.”
