Riverside Transport Museum in Glasgow

The award-winning Concord Beacon Muse from Feilo Sylvania has helped create an energy-saving, high performance lighting display at the Riverside Transport Museum in Glasgow. Used to showcase the various displays in the Modern Street area, eighty two Beacon Muse fittings were chosen for their long life, low energy and optical flexibility. The new scheme provides dynamic accent lighting and helps transport visitors back in time.

Zaha Hadid’s first public building to open in the UK, the Glasgow Riverside Transport Museum sits proudly as a flagship of the city’s Clyde Waterfront regeneration. With its unique shape and demanding presence, it is no surprise the lighting design was not up for compromise. DHA

Design was responsible for lighting the exhibits in the museum. Their brief was to design a predominantly ground-mounted display system that would provide suitable highlights and contrast to the exhibits and collections.

The ‘Modern Street’ offers a set of closed display areas which exhibit various transport items and model street amenities including a subway, MOT garage, cinema, toys shop and cycle shop. These areas had a track system available overhead and DHA chose the Concord Beacon Muse for its onsite flexibility. The clever adjustable zoom option system offers a wide flood 65˚ beam angle which can be tightened to a 10˚ spot without the need for additional lenses or reflectors.
