Culcheth High School
Culcheth High School is a 1500 pupil High School and 6th Form College. The project included daylight design, interior and exterior lighting design. The architecture presents itself with various buildings known as ‘Fingers’ that house the various age groups of the school. The various Fingers are connected by a continuous spine-like corridor that is emphasized through a striking line of light that runs throughout the full length of the school. Other features include the use of mirror reflector lighting systems in the central corridor where the Fingers are intersected. These areas consist of triple height spaces that would have been lost in perspective if it were not for the vertical lighting element of the reflector system. Philip Rafael was the lead designer and managed this project as part of his work as Senior Lighting Designer at BDP Lighting.
