The colour palette that I have selected for the Lighthouse Hub consists of mainly three colour elements.
Monochrome is one of the main colour palettes of the Lighthouse hub, inspired by and representing the concept of light and the contrast between light and shadow. This colour palette was inspired by a few of my precedents – including a co-working space – Interchange by Tom Dixon and the Architecture and Interiors of Hongkou Soho by Kengo Kuma and associates. This also included metallic versions of the colour palette as metallic reflects light. Light fittings will also be selected to tie in with this scheme.
Dark Blue / Teal
Dark blue, with some small dark teal elements adds minimal colour to the space, and provides almost the “shadow” element of colour to the design. I will mainly be sticking to the darker end of the colour palettes shown above as it fits more with my concept of light and shadow being a part of light. It was also inspired by how Tom Dixon works with his interiors by adding some dark colours to a design. Light fittings will also be selected to tie in with this scheme.
Copper / Yellow
Copper with some potential yellow elements will be added to a few areas of the design and provides almost the “light” element of colour to the design. This is mainly through some of the materials that will be used such as copper and alabaster that will be lit from behind in the bar area and some of the bespoke tables that will be designed to go with it. This also matches the red brick of the building which will be exposed in some areas to retain some of its historic design. Light fittings will also be selected to tie in with this scheme.
A materials palette for the building will follow that will show some of these colours shown above.
