Description:This project formed the second phase of regeneration works based upon Griffiths Thompson Partnership’s masterplan strategy for Newcastle’s Chinatown district. The original design proposed Chinese lanterns suspended from gantries spanning the street to create a “canopy of lights”. Due to budget constraints the final scheme was revised to incorporate Chinese lanterns suspended from individual wall-mounted brackets.
