We have been invited and shortlisted to develop a preliminary proposal for a special lighting installation in Combe Down Tunnel, as part of Sustrans' Two Tunnels Greenway - A walking and cycling path between Bath and Midford.
Here our response for creating an immersive and interactive environment, using LEDs lights to evoke an atmospheric sensation.
We developed this proposal after being shortlisted for designing an installation for pedestrian area outside of Bert William Leisure Centre.
