THE NEIGHBOURHOOD SQUARE
LINKSFIELD | JOHANNESBURG
The Square is the unique social, retail and leisure hub of The Neighbourhood. Not only does it provide convenient shopping amenities, but it also offers restaurants, buzzing coffee shops and boutique stores. It is sensitively set amongst existing trees and buffered by a soft landscape to provide a special ambience, setting it apart from other developments.
The lighting design at The Square creates a visually comfortable environment with an outdoor night-time feel reminiscent of the countryside.
Light fittings were positioned and chosen to highlight the architectural and landscaping features, with glare, colour temperature and intensity influencing the decision-making.
The arched columns that line the walkway utilized our Shuttle double wall mounted light to create rhythmic pools of light along the walkway as well as soft indirect light from the ceiling. This single element unifies the scheme at night and makes the centre visible from the road.
Tree uplights (Shuttle trunion and Kevo) were used extensively throughout to light the existing Jacaranda trees that surround the site.
Malta bollards were used in the planters along the walkway edge to highlight the low level indigenous planting as well as indicating ramps and stairs.
