The brand-new Holiday Inn Express Melbourne Southbank is situated in Melbourne’s premier culture and entertainment destination. Positioned in the arts hub of Melbourne, Southbank is home to the National Gallery of Victoria, Arts Centre Melbourne and the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art. Holiday Inn Express is a mixed-use development offering ground floor retail, 3 levels of above ground parking, 3 levels of offices, 345 hotel rooms and an internal, plant and art filled laneway that connects from City Road through to Fawkner Street. Aglo Systems’ Specialist Projects team were pleased to work with ASI Electrics to manage and supply a broad value-managed lighting package of premium products, ensuring the function, output and aesthetic of original design was not compromised.
Holiday Inn Express Southbank features a wide range of Mondolux and Aglo Projects products, sourced especially for all areas of this project – common areas, lobby, gym, conference rooms, hotel rooms/apartments and outdoor façade. Fittings include recessed architectural downlights, Neonflex (blue) LED, Neonflex LED, Impact 5075 Suspended Extrusion, Stealth 1715 Extrusion, Linea 4.8W Strip and wall mounted lights. The photos shown are of the hotel lobby, great room and meeting room – Festival Theatre. Aglo Projects architectural downlights were selected to provide general lighting in these areas and to work with the rooms’ design aesthetic. The Mondolux Impact 5075 was selected as part of the lighting package due to its slimline profile and was used as a feature within the space.
The Aglo Specialist Projects team also worked with ASI’s onsite team to supply made-to-measure pre-assembled LED kits based on exact site measurements, complete with pre-wired plug-and-play connections to cut down installation time and cost.
Downlight fittings were supplied with CRI80 and a colour temperature of 2700K, whereas the linear fittings were supplied with CRI90 and a colour temperature of 2700K.
The project spanned an 18-month duration from original samples to the project handover.
News@CBR is a news and travel essentials concept exclusive to Canberra Airport. A stunning 284sqm flagship store which is located immediately after security, provides travellers with news, books, magazines, stationery, beverages, snacking, confectionary, technology, gifts, souvenirs, toys and travel essentials. Aglo Systems was pleased to work with AWPL, Trivision and Pennant & Triumph to provide Lighting Design, Aiming and Supply of the fit out.
As part of the design, our lighting designer recommended trialling a 3500K colour temperature as the store position had no daylight coming into the store. Usually a 3000K colour temperature is used, however without daylight coming into the store, our recommendation was that 3000K would be too warm and would not stand out in the area.
Other considerations as part of the Lighting Design was to ensure adequate store front illumination by carefully selecting lighting specifications and positioning. We also worked closely with the contractor to make some alterations as needed including aiming to ensure shelving was effectively highlighted.
The bulkhead feature lighting at the front of the store used double rows of Mondolux Linea Surface Mounted LED strip.
To highlight the perimeter shelves, Mondolux Linea Surface Mounted LED with Stealth 1707 extrusion profile was used. For general lighting and product illumination within the store, Messina Midi Spotlights and Power Track 3 Circuit in black were used.
Merchant is the perfect place to pick up a little piece of Australia before or after your travels. An Australian retailer, Merchant’s curated range allows travellers to explore amazing flavours and goods from the furthest reaches of the region. Aglo Systems provided lighting design and supply for several of the retail stores throughout Australia. Photos shown are of the Perth, WA and T2, Sydney, NSW stores.
As part of the client brief from AWPL for these fit outs, we assisted to create a relaxed shopping experience, with an authentic vibe. For the Perth store we completed full Lighting Design, Supply and Aiming, and in T2, Sydney we completed Supply. For the Perth Lighting Design, the interior/joinery layout was challenging due to the ceiling services that limited us to place the fittings at the ideal locations. Our lighting solution incorporated high quality Mondolux LED fittings Polar Adjustable, Queens Adjustable Downlights, Venice Mini and Venice Mini Wall Washer Spotlights, in black, all supplied with a 3000K colour temperature and high CRI 90. Using the Mondolux Venice Mini Wall Washers avoided scalloping along the wall bays and provided even illumination from ceiling to floor.
As part of the lighting supply solution for T2, Sydney the shopfront entry utilises Mondolux LED Surface Mounted Neonflex with Stealth Linear and Corner Mounted Extrusion with opal diffuser, creating a warm and welcoming vibe. Working with Trivision to complete this fit out, we also sourced additional products to meet the Lighting Design requirements. Other fittings supplied as part of this fitout included Mondolux Polar Adjustable downlight and Venice Maxi Spotlight in black, all supplied with a 3000K colour temperature and high CRI 90 to keep the look and feel consistent with other store fit outs.
