Scottish Design Award for Speirs + Major
Speirs + Major has won a Scottish Design Award for its lighting of the historical furnaces of Sands Bethworks in Pennsylvania.
The event celebrates the best achievements in Scottish architecture and graphic design.
Speirs + Major designed a lighting scheme around the ideas of manufacturing for the disused steelworks.
Programmable LEDs illuminate the structures, with shades of red and blue used to express hot and cool processes.
Other projects shortlisted for best lighting were Edinburgh’s Usher Hall by Speirs + Major and the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford by Kevan Shaw Lighting Design.
