Modern Architectural Hospitality Lighting – Canterbury Leagues Club is one of Sydney’s premier hospitality destinations with 5 star amenities including restaurants, coffee shops, multiple bars and entertainment lounges and a 24 hour health club. It is currently undergoing significant refurbishment and extension to multiple areas in a staged development process.
Aglo Systems’ Custom Design and Manufacture team have been involved in the concept ideation and fabrication process of numerous light features across three tender packages. At the time of writing in August 2017, we have delivered eight of the pieces which are located around the Bakery Café and corridor, library, banquette and lounge areas. Another nine items are either in design progress or awaiting installation. The project’s initial purchase orders were provided in March 2016.
Each piece is the final result of a creative design collaboration where the original concept for each piece was provided to Aglo by Point of View lighting designers and Altis architects.
The Library Chandelier is known as DPL6 to our custom design and manufacturing team, who supplied this feature. This chandeliers design was a collaboration effort between Aglo, Point of View’s lighting designers and Altis architects. The chandelier is made from electroplated steel frame work that has been suspended from the ceiling. A total of 30 hand cut crystal droppers suspended from black fabric cable, are each illuminated by a G9 LED lamp. A challenge was getting the correct pattern etched into the crystal droppers.
The DPL1 Banquette Chandelier is a simplistic bent tube light, which is arranged in a semi-circle around a pole. This arrangement takes one individual tube design and places 13 of them together to create an interesting feature. DPL1 is manufactured by mandrel bending a steel tube at both ends. A custom made spinning was also manufactured to conceal the lamp holder. The feature was finished with an antique dark brass electroplate. The feature is fixed to the ceiling with a canopy, which conceals the power cable at one end and then wire suspended on the other. A single E27 light bulb, illuminates each tube section. A challenging aspect for the manufacturing process was getting a clean and neat bend with a consistent tube diameter during bending, which was eventually solved. A purchase order for this feature was processed in March 2016. With multiple reviews and design iterations, this lead to a September 2016 delivery date.
The DWL1 architectural light fitting is a wall light for the lounge area. This feature consists of three mandrel bent and welded tubes which were polished and then electroplated in a brushed dark brass finish. An eye turning feature is the laser cut and rolled decorative mesh placed in front of the three E27 LED lamps. Four of these fittings were supplied for the room.
