Down-river from the historic Cutty Sark, Fuller's chose to occupy an up-and-coming part of town in the ground two floors of a shiny glass tower-block development. With trendy design companies neighboring the Thameside location this site is a flagship pub/ restaurant for the Fuller's estate.
Heavy influences came from the river with much of the interior lighting being reclaimed or bespoke to echo the unmistakably nautical area.
This project was also Fuller's pioneering attempt at a 100% LED site, whilst trying to maintain its important traditional atmosphere. LC93 were brought onboard for their expertise and technical knowledge to ensure this eco-site was delivered...in style.
Lighting a two-storey space dominated by glazing with an outlook onto an impressive water-way is not easy - whilst trying to create a cosy, comfortable environment to have a morning coffee in or an evening pint the lighting had to generate mood. Maritime lighting was used throughout with warm traditional filament LED lamps, controlled to dim throughout the day. Bright sunshine or a grey overcast day will dramatically change the feel of the pub - so the lighting had to help bridge the gap and maintain the warmth.
The building is at its best at dusk, with the array of sparkly filament lamps twinkling in the windows - a beacon on the riverside.
