Aglo Systems supplied the hotel lighting package for boutique hotel Brady Hotels Jones Lane, which opened in late 2019. Brady Hotels Jones Lane is situated in the north-east quarter of Melbourne’s CBD surrounded by theatres, restaurants, and the business district. The boutique hotel features 153 hotel rooms over 21 levels and boasts the latest design and amenities including bespoke furniture, modern bathroom designs, a gym, café, guest laundry and upper level terrace offering a serene outlook. The $32 million hotel was developed by SJB, Peddle Thorp, and Brady Construction. The Specialist Projects team at Aglo Systems worked with ASI Electrics to supply a broad value managed hotel lighting package of premium products, providing cost management and project management to deliver to the specified budget while meeting the design brief.
Brady Hotels Jones Lane features a wide range of Mondolux products and Aglo Projects products across the hotel rooms, room door numbers and café area. Fittings include adjustable recessed downlights, surface mounted extrusion with 9.6W strip, pendants and custom disc wall sconces for room numbering. Mondolux Stirling 90 Adjustable Recessed Downlights in white were used within the hotel rooms and for common areas to provide general lighting. The Mondolux Benson Adjustable Recessed Downlight with IP40 was selected for the café area to provide general lighting. As part of the custom requirements of this project to meet the modern, bespoke design aesthetic we sourced two additional Aglo Project Products – the disc wall sconces used for the hotel room numbering and flowerpot pendants which were used within the hotel rooms. The disc sconces were supplied based on the architect’s feedback, in conjunction with ASI where we sourced the fitting to match the required output specification, physical diameter and design intent providing a sleek/minimal look and feel with a backlighting effect for the room number. The flowerpot pendants were sourced to meet the technical requirements, design intent and customer budget where we ensured the product had the correct customised finish while meeting the project-specific performance specifications. Both fittings were sourced and supplied using our robust project management skills working to short timeframes and organising delivery dates to work in with booked trades to cause no disruption to the opening date.
Downlight fittings were supplied with CRI80 and a colour temperature of 3000K whereas the extrusion fittings were supplied with CRI90 and a colour temperature of 2700K.
The project spanned a short 6 month duration from original samples to delivery.
