AECOM office fitout at Level 21 420 George Street, Sydney

The reception, function rooms, kitchen and office areas of this project have undergone a remarkable fitout making the most of the significant levels of daylight penetrating into this space but the outstanding feature of the area is a giant LED lit finger print. There are black polished glass lined corridors that have been lit so as not to reflect light and other areas that seam to float with the use of well design lighting.

Façade Lighting of 1 Martin Place, Sydney

This well known heritage building façade of the old GPO has been re lit using various types of LEDs to subtly emphasis the clock tower, arches, balconies and exterior stonework without light penetrating into the rooms. The various selections of LEDs from different suppliers have been chosen to give a constant uniform warm colour.

The First Emperor : China’s Entombed Warriors Exhibition at The Art Gallery of NSW
This is an exhibition that was only in use for a short time. Black reflective film walls with well selected lighting gave the appearance of a larger display. Lighting was selected to give a journey thru the exhibition and to highlight the exhibits.

Foyer and Lobby of ASX 20 Bridge St Sydney

Ground floor foyer of ACTEWAGL building, Canberra

When driving down the street at night this entry really stands out. It was done to celebrate it’s 10th anniversary of ACTEWAGL. It does needs to be seen to be appreciated - the colour changing "Ossolites" are programmed to create dramatic and interactive sequences of light, colour and movements.
