The internationally renowned Price Waterhouse Cooper is one of the largest financial Advisors in the GCC region, with over 200,000 employees. PWC has offices located in all major cities across Saudi Arabia, Acoulite worked with Perkins + Will to create the lighting concept for their new office located in the newly designed and prestigious King Abdullah Financial District (KAFD).
Acoulite worked closely with the designers and contractors at every stage of this project. Starting at the initial design stage with the consultant Cundall (http://www.cundall.com) to the execution of the concept with Riyadh based contractor Absal Paul (http://www.absalpaul.com), this was all conducted under the project management company Aecom (http://www.aecom.com).
The lighting design was created to achieve optimum flexibility in the open areas of the office. Acoulite implemented high visual comfort ratios with a minimal power consumption rate. LED cove lighting from Osram (https://www.osram.com/corporate/) was used to add a sleek touch to the design. Custom-made pendants and down lighting from Flos (http://www.flos.com) added a touch of class and uniqueness to the overall atmosphere. It was essential to create a design and feel to the VIP, managers and meeting rooms that would reflect and maintain PWC’s worldwide identity. This was achieved through the intelligent use of diverse lighting products in tandem with the design-forward, interior look.
The project was a great success and delivered in a timely and efficient manner; opening the door for Acoulite to become one of the main providers for the KAFD project.
