Festival House, Wedding Chapel, Blackpool

Location: Blackpool
Architect: dRMM
Sector: public

‘A superb example of how to incorporate the Roman Brick and how working with the architect can achieve some unusual ‘bespoke’ block finishes, the Glow in the Dark block’

Glow in the Dark was a collaborative project involving DRMM Architects. The block was required for the Tower Festival Headland, co-named Tower of Love, a wedding venue, cafe and tourist information point on Blackpool’s seafront.

The ‘Glow in the Dark’ block was developed using the Lignacite concrete block with recycled and phosphorescent glass. The block, after light absorption emits a subtle green light. An example of how this works can be seen in our Lignacite Video.
