Lighting is key to the building, which offers 24/7 access for its users. An internal lighting installation in the atrium can be viewed from the inside, but is also seen externally from surrounding areas including the University of Manchester campus. A mix of intimately lit and large open spaces alongside the specially lit landscape allows for flexibility.
