News@CBR is a news and travel essentials concept exclusive to Canberra Airport. A stunning 284sqm flagship store which is located immediately after security, provides travellers with news, books, magazines, stationery, beverages, snacking, confectionary, technology, gifts, souvenirs, toys and travel essentials. Aglo Systems was pleased to work with AWPL, Trivision and Pennant & Triumph to provide the retail store lighting design, aiming and supply of the fit-out.
As part of the design, our lighting designer recommended trialling a 3500K colour temperature as the store position had no daylight coming into the store. Usually a 3000K colour temperature is used, however without daylight coming into the store, our recommendation was that 3000K would be too warm and would not stand out in the area.
Other considerations as part of the Retail Store Lighting Design was to ensure adequate storefront illumination by carefully selecting lighting specifications and positioning. We also worked closely with the contractor to make some alterations as needed including aiming to ensure shelving was effectively highlighted.
The bulkhead feature lighting at the front of the store used double rows of Mondolux Linea Surface Mounted LED strip.
To highlight the perimeter shelves, Mondolux Linea Surface Mounted LED with Stealth 1707 extrusion profile was used. For general lighting and product illumination within the store, Messina Midi Spotlights and Power Track 3 Circuit in black were used.
