Les Ambassadeurs is an exclusive Casino, second only to 50 St James's also owned by London Clubs. A Grade II* listed building, once the home of the Rothchild Family, its exceptional French Classical style facade was seen by the owners as a wonderful opportunity to create a fantastic theatrical illusion, through the judicious use of exterior lighting.
The brief was simple enough, but had to be fulfilled within the strictures of English Heritage, with no visible exterior fittings allowed.
The main challenge was the fact that no visible light fittings were allowed, requiring the use of small, inconspicuous fittings in concealed locations. Long secondary runs of up to 50 metres would be required for the low-voltage lighting and transformer location was another hurdle, as it was not possible to gain access to the interior of the building.
Exterior VoltMaster dimmable transformers were the only way the long secondary runs could be accommodated, and some of these were supplied in specially camouflaged boxes for locations where there was no other method of concealment.
The small, beautifully engineered Lightscape fittings are inconspicuous at low-level and invisible at higher levels, by day and by night, and are admired by maintenance staff. The VoltMasters deliver a stabilised, dimmable power-supply which provides brilliant, even illumination throughout the installation with the assurance of complete reliability, trouble free operation and extended lamp-life. Ben Pearce-Higgins.
We are delighted, and have had many positive comments from our customers. We have every confidence in the reliable equipment installed and the quality of the installation. Robert Winfield, London Clubs Management Ltd.
