Woodhouse has been designing and manufacturing co-ordinated families of lighting, street furniture shelter systems and signage since 1987. The company’s consistent aim has been to use repeating elements on the street to bring a sense of order and place to towns and cities. There was rarely any consideration as to how these elements would work together on the street or the contribution they would make to the perceived value of the space. From the very beginning, Woodhouse’s approach has been to look first the functional requirements, the commonality of design that could be brought to those different functions.
Woodhouse currently manufactures four different product ranges; Geo, Coda, Loci and Motis and also supplies street furniture and lighting elements from 4 European partners; Escofet, Aubrilam, Eclatec and LEC Lyon.
Woodhouse has a long-standing relationship with the Architect Alex Lifschutz of Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands, who has designed two ranges for the company: Geo, which reflects the best of modern urban design and has been selected for and installed in some of the most prestigious and iconic public realm projects of the past 20 years; and CODA – a new contemporary, co-ordinated range that shares the same award-winning design DNA as the Geo range, and introduces an innovative concrete construction to deliver longevity, robustness, quality and excellent whole-life cost value.
