Winter Windows 2018Images1 / Information
Location London SW9
Status Completed 2018
Now in it’s second year, Winter Windows is a collaboration between a group of children aged 8-11 from Hill Mead Primary School and designers from Squire and Partners.
Over the course of two workshops run by the practice, children were challenged to create expressive winter shapes using a continuous line of light based around emotions or senses such as excitement, light or cold. Children explored these alongside more traditional winter symbols such as snowflakes, sweets and gingerbread men, drawing with pencils on paper and testing out the ideas with a ‘line of light’.
A panel of judges from Squire and Partners selected eight winning designs varying from ice skaters to steaming mugs of hot chocolate! The children's sketches were then transformed into physical light installations by Squire and Partners' modelshop team.
Occupying an entire glazing panel along the street, each bespoke light is made using a sheet of Perspex with a coloured LED light set into a CNC cut channel.
