Wall of Light, St Anne’s Churchyard, Wardour Street

By Davis Landscape Architecture @DavisLandArch

The Wall of Light was the idea of a residents’ charity Soho Green and was completed in 2004. It was designed by an architect local to the site, Steve Johnson and was constructed to discourage Soho Green (St Anne’s Churchyard) being used for drug dealing, defecating and littering in this formally a dark secluded space.

The wall of Light is comprised of 16 Oak curved posts which support panels of stainless steel mesh. It has fiber optic lighting installed in the top and bottom Oak struts to each panel, these wash light onto the stainless steel mesh. These fiber optic lights are programmed so as to provide a dynamic lighting display, providing delight to those passing this feature during the hours of darkness.
