UCL New Student Centre Opens
University College London's new centre in the heart of Bloomsbury is a 6-level hub for a host of student services. Foremost are individual and group study areas - 1,000 study places have been created.

The work surface lighting requirement was well met by Aktiva's discreetly efficient AL-07/LED/Desk, its 2.9 Watt lensed lamping doing its bit towards an aimed-for BREEAM rating of 'Outstanding' for the Centre.

Architect: Nicholas Hare Architects

Making Waves at the Old Library St John’s Oxford
B-Line/Book has now added a Wave shade option to its features. Designed to reduce light glare significantly, the Wave shade option has greater width than the standard B-Line but still presents a slim profile.

B-Line/Book/Wave is currently being evaluated for use in the Grade 1 Listed Old Library (built in 1598) at St John’s College Oxford. This test installation demonstrates lighting that can work with the oldest bookshelves in Oxford.
