Ten galleries, 3,000 artefacts ranging from aircraft to fashion and steam engines to textiles with the added challenge of daylight flooding in through skylights in some areas and no light at all in others. The new galleries of the National Museum of Scotland gave Sutton Vane Associates the opportunity to create a series of distinct lighting designs to complement each space.


Months in the planning and weeks on site paid off as the galleries were opened in spectacular style during July 2016 in time for the busy holiday season.
