Raine Square Redevelopment
Charter Hall’s redevelopment of Raine Square expands the centre into a spectacular entertainment and retail precinct. Conveniently located in close proximity to the train and bus stations, Perth City Link and Perth Arena.
This collaboration between Taylor Robinson Chaney Broderick and Cox Architecture, includes specialty retail stores, a new hotel, various restaurants and bars and a multi-screen cinema complex. The design addresses the site’s four street frontages and increasing public access in addition to integrating the existing heritage buildings. The heritage Royal Hotel, Glyde Chambers and Wentworth buildings have been restored as part of the redevelopment and returned to their former glory.
Façades and soffit are illuminated with striking effects to highlight both new and old architectural features. The modern gold squares lined with Unios Aeon Flex reflect the Raine Square branding while iGuzzini iPro, Linealuce RGB and Trick highlight the columns and detail of the heritage buildings. The discrete Laser Blades hidden amongst timber beams under the soffit create an inviting entrance to the precinct.
The interior features textured ceilings illuminated by Unios Aeon Flex and ELS downlights. Similarly the Unios Eclipse Linear lights compliment the timber beams creating a comfortable environment in addition to highlighting the texture. ELS SystemKanal was used to create square feature lighting, which add another design element that reflects the Raine Square branding. The Unios Marc wall lights bring the graphic shapes to the walls of the elevator entrance.
New laneways and entrances from William Street, with enhancements to the existing entrances allow a greater level of public access. Both client and builder requested a low voltage catenary system in addition to dimming capabilities to illuminate the laneway. The low voltage was necessary as it was to be strung over a public space. Mondoluce worked with ELS to achieve the required combination of low voltage and dimming control within the Ligman Odessa with Xicato XIM LED module. The fittings were suspended on the catenary throughout the laneway, which also enables the client to hang decorative features. The laneway is lit by iGuzzini Crown post tops in conjunction with bench seating lined with Unios Aeon Flex, which create a safe and inviting environment.
