We took this thought and applied an approach which introduced warmth and depth. We worked with WMK to peel back the finishes, pressing outward and pulling inwards to provide a silky organic glow through openings in the ceiling and walls. Slot details, curved coves and trimless plaster body luminaires meld with the softness of the lighting, applied with warm white LED throughout. Subtle feature light elements accompany the hospitality feel, and the CityScape light sculpture adds a dramatically abstract but germane statement to the client’s core offering. Our client is ecstatic with the result and the way it provides CBRE with a unique and relevant result through the medium of light.
The CityScape light sculpture was born from the idea to reflect CBRE’s position as the world’s leader in commercial real estate services. The extruded forms fall from a mirrored feature ceiling to create the abstract collection of buildings, rising and falling as they do through the typical cities around the globe. The ‘shining light’ elements representing the introduction of new buildings progressively developing within the high-rise clusters.
The flexible multi-layered lighting adapts to both day and night, as well as multiple room configurations for various functions. The entire meeting room partition system retracts, opening up to create a generous function space. On the push of a button the area expands and the lighting morphs, transforming from a series of corporate interface spaces to a warm hospitality and function space.
95% of light sources throughout are LED, with the remainder T5 fluorescent. All lighting is high-colour rendering with a CCT of 3000K. The lighting control system functionality was conceptualised to allow the flexibility of spaces to adapt to their varied purposes.
