Property Week Winner 2020 Developer of the Year

Alumno and Lumiere, together again!

The UK’s largest light festival is back in Durham on 12-15 November 2015 and will showcase works from UK-based and international artists. Alumno are sponsoring the festival for a second time and are proud to support Patrice Warrener’s piece named “The Red House”

Patrice Warrener for Lumiere

Warrener, who trained as a painter, is an artist known internationally for a system he invented called the Chromolithe Polychromatic Illumination System. Over the last fifteen years he has made more than 60 chromolithe (meaning colour from stone) installations, lighting up buildings in cities all over the world.

The technique sees Warrener paint onto building facades using projected light, transforming the building with an incredible palette of bright colours. The light work is meticulously traced onto the building in advance.

David Campbell, Alumno MD said “Alumno Developments are pleased to support Lumiere Durham again as part of our longstanding commitment to developing creative talent – from leading international names like Patrice Warrener, to the local graduate artists who showcase their work in our developments.”
