This modern family house has two highlights, which proved to be a special lighting challenge: heart of the house is an over all floors leading, 8-meter-high wall of water. To visually underline the effect of the gently flowing water, LIGHT ON used LED strips in a stainless steel profiles from top and bottom, illuminating the wall with linear grazing light. Another ambitious solution was developed for the bar made of onyx stone. To make the colorfully drawn, translucent stone work optimally, the entire bar was backlit with VarioLED ™ Flex HYDRA HD25. The niches in the bathroom and a spiral staircase are illuminated by lighting fixtures of the VENUS family.

The refurbishment of this key building in Victoria involved the relighting of the main office floors with low energy lighting and the creation of an impressive new entry experience.
A special canopy feature was developed with integrated lighting built-in to visually link the interior spaces to the external streetscape. A series of canter-lever arms extend through the interior lobby and are brought together to form a canopy at the entry point on the streetscape. Adjustable lighting offers the facility for varying coloured presentations. Whilst a set colour balance is used at most times in a static mode, for special occasions the colours, tone and brightness can be set to different levels.
The lighting controls utilise the DMX protocol which in this project is on a wireless network, due to the complex nature of the building and the tight voids which precluded traditional cable ways to be threaded through the structure.
