The Fawkner is a newly built 20-level apartment complex located on St.Kilda Road, South Yarra, VIC featuring 253 luxury hotel-inspired apartments Aglo Systems worked with Vast Electrical Services, Icon Builders and K.P.D.O Architects to complete this project.
Aglo’s Custom Design and Manufacturing team developed four different types of feature lights installed throughout this high rise building. The first pendant can be seen initially when entering the reception area. Two versions of a cubed style pendant were designed and created so that each had a different type of finish; brushed light brass and the other polished nickel. These pendants required the manufacturing techniques of metal folding, welding, polishing and have an electroplated finish. The brushed brass cube pendant version is located above the reception desk and the polished nickel one is on the opposite side, in the residents meeting room.
As well as the polished nickel cubed pendant installed in the residents meeting room, Aglo’s Custom Design team also developed a large branch-shaped pendant for above the meeting table. This pendant was manufactured using milled and cast metal techniques and features glass blown shades.
The fourth architectural light feature for this project is located in the wine room. This chandelier is installed over the centre of the dining table and incorporates three layers of moulded glass tubes in orange, clear and frosted colouring. Manufacturing methods for this included metal rolling, folding, welding and polishing for the frame of the chandelier and moulding and sandblasting for the glass components.
All design and engineering work was completed by our inhouse professionals, who also assisted with the onsite installation.
Aglo also supplied the general lighting for this site. Click here to view the Project Lighting Solution for this project.
