The UK’s Architectural Signage experts – how can we help?

What is architectural signage?

Architectural signage is the generic term use to describe custom signage that is specifically designed and produced in order to enhance the built environment. Typical applications for architectural lighting include branding, wayfinding and decor, but the actual uses, as indicated by these photos, are very broad.

Examples of Architectural Signage

Wayfinding signage.

Suspended signage.

Branding/Logo signs.

Illuminated / non-illuminated signs.

External location-defining signage.

Custom decorative signage.

Essential factors for your architectural lighting

Objective. Firstly, you need to consider what your architectural signage is going to achieve. Are you trying to build your brand for visitors to your reception. Are you helping building users to locate the facilities? Are you helping a building sponsor express their investment and support?

Sympathy with the building & its users. It’s important that the design and execution of your architectural lighting projects are sympathetic with the building and its users. Is the building modern or classic? What’s the demographic of the building’s users and how will they relate to your architectural signage? Consider how you can lean on, and bring out, the character and history of the building.

Technical aspects. If you choose illuminated architectural signage so that it stands out, you need to consider where technical parts will be located. This includes elements such as wiring, dimmers, LED drivers and connectors. Engaging the install team at the design stage will ensure that this element is fairly straightforward.

Who should we choose for our Architectural Signage project?

The architectural signage and lighting will take a very small proportion of your overall building budget, but if you get it right, it will have a huge impact on the success of your project. Based here in the UK, Carousel Lights have experience working with some of the UK’s largest and most prestigious building owners, building operators, architects, designers, local authorities and fit-out companies. We can assist at any stage of your project, whether at initial design conception stage or at final fix.
