The Word

National Centre for the Written Word

Multi award winning state of the art cultural venue The Word, featuring extensive and creative lighting solutions by Hacel.

The Word is a hub of creative and inspirational spaces offering continued celebration of the written word in all its forms showcased through a rolling program of events, exhibitions and workshops. With the cutting edge circular design structure, an impressive lighting specification with a modern influence was essential to reflect the ideology and encompassing arrangement of the building. Class leading artistic Hacel luminaires, equipped aesthetically and technically, contributed and supported the outstanding, architecturally creative building. The desired outcome has been achieved above and beyond expectations and The National Centre for the Written Word looks set to become another iconic structure in the North East.
