The lighting plays an important role in highlighting focal points and at the same time creating the necessary ambience to integrate the landscape into the modern architecture. The lighting design focuses on the aesthetic appeal of the buildings as well as the functional and ergonomic aspects of the spaces. A range of luminaries were carefully selected to seamlessly integrate into the building environment.
New technology Cree Edge LED floodlights with solar panels were used to illuminate the carpark to Australian Standards whilst maintaining efficient design and aesthetic appeal. Cree Edge In-direct LED post-top luminaries were selected for the illumination of the general landscape area to ensure visual comfort. iGuzzini iRoll uplighters were used to create a lighting statement to the entrance hallway of each building. iGuzzini Full wall lights were installed for their performance and halo wash effect to highlight the feature brickwork and architectural façade. iGuzzini Light Up Lights were selected to highlight the striking architectural columns and feature walls.
