The development consists of a Tower building housing 18 occupiable floors, which includes a business centre and high-end retail and 7 levels of boutique offices in the heritage listed Mayfair Building.
Electrolight was commissioned to design specialist lighting to the Ground Floor common areas including the entry lobby, Atrium, main lobby, lift lobbies, amenities and the Mayfair Building heritage façade. Lighting emphasises the internal architecture and reinforces a sense of luxury and sophistication inherent with a premium office development of this nature.
The entry is constructed of travertine stone walls which continue through to the Atrium and ground floor lobby. The travertine is evenly illuminated using a range of different techniques including traditional wall washing, grazing and spotlighting. Metal halide lamps with a warm white colour temperature were used in the space to create warmth and augment the elegance of the interior. The lighting scheme supports the architecture, emphasising the stone material, which is a signature feature of the building, and provides excellent vertical illumination throughout the ground floor.
A glowing line at the base of the stone wall visually defines the perimeter of the entry, Atrium and lobby, creating the illusion of illuminating the full height of the stone wall. The glowing line is created by an architectural recess with frosted glass diffuser and internal LED strip.
Environmentally sustainable principles were central to the lighting design, with the building achieving a 6 star Green Star and 5 star NABERS energy rating.
