The stunning atrium concourse of Liverpool’s Exchange Station is illuminated with a Mirrotec, a secondary reflector system from SITECO. Situated in the heart of Liverpool’s Central Business District, Exchange Station is an exciting 193,000 sq ft office destination. The central core of the former Victorian railway station has been completely transformed to incorporate a stunning concourse and newly refurbished office suites with all of the technology, security, sustainability and design requirements for businesses.
The atrium forms the centrepiece of the historic building, and as well as being the main reception also serves as a spacious area for informal meetings, networking and relaxation. The requirements for the lighting solution included uniform, glare-free illumination, integration with the daylight supplied via the glass roof, and a visual appearance corresponding with the contemporary architecture and materials.
Mirrotec is the ideal solution for high quality illumination without glare in a premium space such as Exchange Station. As a secondary reflector system, the multi-facetted, Fresnel lens of Mirrotec ensures that the intense floodlight beam is directed over a large surface area, eliminating glare from polished floors, curtain wall glass areas, and from direct view into the mirror. The result is highly effective but non-intrusive lighting.
