SVA York Minster 8749.jpg

Sutton Vane Associates completed a dramatic new lighting scheme in the West Nave in York Minster. The new scheme is more discrete, energy efficient, and flexible than the previous scheme. The beautiful new light renders the magnificent colours of the interior perfectly.

Luminaires are located at triforium level to illuminate the Nave, and above the capitals to illuminate the aisles. The mounting details were carefully developed to ensure that the luminaires were concealed from view.

The Minster can take on a whole variety of personalities, with specially programmed lighting scenes for public visiting hours, worship, ceremonies ,concerts and other events.
