Recent commercial projects have ranged from architectural illumination & creative landscape lighting, to more specialised work, including living/green walls and urban regeneration. Much of our commercial work includes the illumination of the communal areas of residential complexes, which has to combine the criteria of being both decorative as well as providing practical security lighting.
Recent commercial clients include Westminster Council – Paddington Recreation Park, Berkeley Home/Scotscape – Goodman’s Fields, Boxtree – Rubens Hotel, Gavin Jones – Counry Estate, Light Lab – Show home, The Filaments, Wandsworth.
We have designed and installed garden lighting in many medal-winning gardens at the annual RHS Chelsea Flower Show since 2002, including those designed by Diarmuid Gavin, Julian Dowle (winner of Best in Show), Erik de Maeijer & Jane Hudson, and the 100% New Zealand Garden by Xanthe White and From Life to Life (in memory of George Harrison) by Yvonne Innes and Olivia Harrison. We also installed the lighting for the QR Garden designed by Jade Goto at the Chelsea Flower Show in 2012. We also have a long-standing relationship with several nightclubs and have provided lighting design & installation for outdoor rooms at Canvas, The Cross & Pacha.
Branton Bamford was the electrical consultant on BBC’s “Home Front”, the high-end interior and exterior design series, presented by Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen & Diarmuid Gavin.
On-screen appearances frequently accompanied his work, which ranged from the installation of motorised garden rooms that rise out of the ground, or move along a track to enable them to stay in the sun, to the installation of turntables, disco lights, mirror balls and projectors in a nightclub-inspired garden, all of course lit by state-of-the-art garden lighting.
For the BBC series “The Apprentice”, we designed exterior and garden lighting for the ‘home’ of the contestants, including the electrical installation of an outdoor gym. Wishbone Exterior Lighting has advised the BBC in its coverage of garden lighting for the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, as well as having our work featured extensively in the programme’s film about garden lighting.
