Lighting Historic Buildings by Derek Phillips



Historic buildings form a large part of the nation's heritage, whether used for their original purpose, as might be the case of a theatre, a railway terminus or house, where some modification may be required to meet its enhanced needs, whilst retaining the integrity of the original structure; or alternatively historic buildings where the use has completely changed and it is reasonable. Retired since 1993, Derek Phillips, was an architect and lighting consultant. After obtaining degrees at Liverpool School of Architecture (first class honors) and Massachusetts Institute of Technology and after spending time as a visitor to the University of Berkeley, Derek became Architectural Consultant to the AEI Lamp and Lighting Company. He then founded his own architectural and lighting practice in 1958, called Derek Phillips Associates, which later became DPA (UK) Lighting and DPA Chartered Architects.
