International House - Fragments, Ashford
StudioFractal were invited to create an exterior light installation reinventing the nighttime presence of International House. Drawing upon the architectural details of this landmark office building and engaging a transformational colour pallet, Fragments has been designed to dematerialise the form of the building, reducing it to a rhythm of vertical gestures with colours and activity celebrating seasonal change.
The scheme is designed to have a minimal daytime impact and comprises adapted colour changing LED fittings within a custom-designed cable trunking system. An abstract display of colour changing shards animates the building from dusk through to midnight - with bursts of increased activity on the hour.
