The Illuminated Arboretum

We were Commissioned to design and deliver “The Illuminated Arboretum” at The National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire.

“The National Memorial Arboretum is the UK’s year-round centre of Remembrance; a spiritually uplifting place which honours the fallen, recognises service and sacrifice, and fosters pride in our country. It is a living and lasting memorial.”

Working with the Arboretum we devised a light trail enabling visitors to experience and enjoy the various physical and emotional aspects of the Arboretum at night.

Inspired by the Arboretums theme of “Humanity in the Living Landscape” we designed a trail that encouraged visitors to interact with it’s core themes of Service, Nature and Positivity.

These themes are abundant throughout the landscape and our mission was to highlight and enliven these aspects through sympathetic trails, and immersive lighting installations.

The installations were designed to be enjoyed individually, each providing an opportunity for meaningful engagement, or as a whole… each a step on a journey through the site.
