Aglo Systems has worked with Crown Melbourne for over 5 years and was commissioned to engineer and manufacture the Porte Cochere LED architectural light fittings and several other custom-built pieces for the new Crown Perth development. We worked in parallel with Bates Smart and Electrolight to deliver the project.
The Porte Cochere feature consisted of a series of large, overlapping pendants ranging in size and shape from 3.5×3.5m up to 2.5×5.5m. Each pendant required even illumination of the opal white diffusers on the inner and outer faces of the pendant, with a polished mirror rose gold finish to the top and bottom.
The outdoor conditions played a major role in selecting weather proof materials and components such as stainless steel, acrylic and IP67 LED strip whilst still achieving a high-quality finish. Aluminium was also used to reduce weight to meet the load ratings of the ceiling structure and ease the installation process.
