Exterior Lighting of the Iconic Sea Containers Building

Project brief

To provide an eye-catching lighting and media system solution for the north façade of the prestigious Sea Containers Building, located near London’s popular South Bank cultural area.
Following a decision to redevelop the building into a luxury hotel, building developer the Byrne Group commissioned A.C. Special Projects to supply and install the Traxon LED Media Tube system, after being very impressed by the performance and potential of the product during a demonstration.
The huge scale of the building's internal and external refurbishment project required compliance with very strict contractor regulations regarding undertaking work on-site. In addition, a number of technical and logistical challenges had to be overcome to install the fixtures to the client's requirements and tight timescale.

Project details


  • Traxon 60PXL Media Tube RGB
  • Warm White LED Tubing
  • Traxon & e:cue Lighting Control Engine 2 FX Media Server
  • Traxon & e:cue Video Micro Converters


  • Demonstration and advice on equipment selection
  • Sourcing, supplying and installation of equipment
  • Programming and commissioning of lighting control system



The Sea Containers Building is an iconic riverside landmark overlooking London's South Bank, so we are very proud to be involved in lighting this beautiful spectacle. The bold choice for the exterior lighting design provides an eye-catching complement to the venue's distinctive north façade and rooftop cruise liner hull design.
