Royal Academy of Art

Preserving the fabric of a heritage building and creating efficient lighting that is also discreet is always a challenge but in the setting of the Royal Academy’s General Assembly Room, it was of paramount importance. The chamber is where the Royal Academy's governing body convened and not only are its walls lined with precious art but the room itself has great architectural importance. So, a multi-circuit version of Precision Lighting’s Basis Track has been carefully concealed from view, installed above the chamber’s cornice to light both the ceiling and the artworks. The track was given a custom finish of RAL9002 grey-white to match the walls precisely. Other rooms equipped with Precision Lighting fittings at the RA include the Tennant Gallery, the Council Room and the Reynolds Room.
