The visitor centre aims to illustrate the history of York, highlighting the historical importance of the city’s sweet manufacturing history with a tour and coffee shop. The lighting helps to reveal this story by using several visual sensations throughout the tour to highlight key parts of the exhibition. A playful project, the coffee shop lighting uses references such as swirling chocolate and sweets to create a comfortable environment where patrons can taste the sweet history of York.
