The Barbican, London – Backstage Lighting Upgrades

PTB have recently completed the installation of the new lighting system, rear of house at the Barbican Concert Hall – the home of the London Symphony Orchestra. PTB were initially approached by Yvette Chin of the Barbican’s in-house Projects team to explore a new lighting scheme to help breath new life into the backstage areas of the concert hall, the area was in dire need of a facelift as it was a very uninviting area for the musicians. PTB looked at various options alongside Yvette and Ingo Reinhardt (Senior Technical Manager at the Barbican Centre) and designed a system utilisiing a Pharos control system, GDS ArcSystem and Pulsar Chroma AR111. PTB subsequently worked alongside builders Huttons to create the revitalised space.
