Cranbrook School Heritage Lighting Rejuvenation
Heritage lighting fittings are remodelled into a new light feature at Cranbrook School, NSW
Aglo worked with Point of View lighting design to create several corridor pendants and a heritage lighting feature pendant for Cranbrook School in Sydney. The feature pendant utilised three separate, historic light features, which were carefully refurbished and incorporated into a new single design piece. It was a challenge to blend the aesthetics of these pre-existing features with a new design that combined all of these components into one feature pendant. The new components were manufactured by milling, rolling and spinning brass to match the material and finish of the existing features.
Point of View’s concept for the new corridor pendant feature lights came in three size variations. The materials, look and feel had to match the historic building environment. In total, Aglo Systems produced three units of three-spheres; two units of a dual sphere; and one single-sphere version. The corridor pendants were manufactured by spinning, folding and welding steel, which was then electroplated in a brushed brass finish, to compliment the aesthetic of the feature pendant. The corridor pendant illuminates the area with LED strip up lighting and downlight spotlights.
