A dynamic lighting scheme and sound installation within the underpass, with a native planting scheme that will improve the environment for people and nature. Linear, low-level lighting on either side of the walkway will lead to an immersive environment within the underpass.
Larkshall Underpass is a transitional space for both people and nature and this proposal will encourage their connection in a playful and inclusive approach. Continuous lines of light will describe the pathway, illuminate the handrails and lead to the underpass. This will improve way-finding and create a space which is more welcoming. The lines will be discreetly fitted in tamper proof profiles, under the coping; thereby ensuring minimal light spill or wildlife disruption.
Within the underpass a saturated lighting environment refers to sunset and sunrise. The effect will shift gradually and mix colour and brightness in relation to the time of day and year to create a vibrant and gentle atmosphere.
