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.
