A re-purposed building structure almost 300 years old receives one major intervention intended to bring an exquisite environment for cultural events, social gatherings and a new life for a derelict colonial grain silo.
The lighting design had to extract the flexible features of a solid built environment making the structure easy to communicate character, meaning and mood. The voice that lighting conveys adheres to a new program one that makes this already beautiful construction and invites visitors to spend time at night
A complex restoration over 4 year period and a superb landscape layout gave a guidance for the type of intervention that the lighting could add to the environment, interior are to be flexible for different tasks and use. Exterior had to reflect festive or formal situations visually to a distance. All lighting fixtures are LEDs in RGBW and DMX interface, all fixtures are mounted to existing perimeter walls that determined distance and optics required height was achieved by mounting fixtures in posts where no less than 2 fixtures where installed in order to optimise and decrease number of vertical elements.

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
