Orangery, Beam, Wakefield

Collaborating with Tim Anderson and John Orrell from DLA architects, Leeds on the new development of Beam's base, the Orangery (an old orangery). The site is next to the redeveloped railway station in Wakefield.

These ideas are still in progress. We are looking to reconfigure the building and have artistic lighting that is activated by the variable electrical current of an orange tree. The image of circuits on the exterior light up, change colour and are connected to the orange tree roots. This becomes an Orange Circuitree.

The semi transparent exterior creates views into the new upper garden.

Many thanks to Tim Anderson (also created the animation), John Orrell, Rob Powell and Kate Watson.
