Capital Tower, Cardiff
Capital Tower, Cardiff, is a sleek, modern office building. It's home to a wide range of businesses operating in a prime location in the Welsh capital.
With 24 floors, the building is the tallest in Cardiff. It has undergone a multi-million-pound refurbishment to create the ideal office environment.
As part of this refurbishment, the building owners felt that the few vacant offices needed an overhaul. This meant both in terms of aesthetics and functionality, in order to make them as appealing as possible for prospective tenants.
The lighting was identified as an effective way to improve the office environment throughout the building. Tamlite Lighting luminaires were specified, to create an aesthetically pleasing space, and provide a positive working environment for staff members.
Contemporary Office Design
Previously, the vacant offices at Capital Tower used suspended ceilings and panels to illuminate the space. As part of the renovation, the building owners voiced a desire for raised ceilings and suspended luminaires. This was to give a change of style to the office.
The design and fit-out was carried out by Paramount Interiors, who believe in disrupting the idea of a common workplace. On top of this, it would also provide solutions that focus on employee wellbeing.
Tamlite supplied suspended SIGNUM modules for a number of offices and residential spaces, making the interior feel premium and modern. This is critical for a contemporary space such as Capital Tower.
To further improve the quality of illumination in the offices, the luminaires were supplied with PIR sensors. This ensures that illumination is only provided where it is required, reducing energy consumption for Capital Tower.
