4 National Circuit, Canberra, Australia

Client: ISPT

Architect: Fender Katsalidis

Landscape Architect: Oculus

NDYLIGHT was appointed by ISPT as part of the NDY team to be involved in all front of house lighting elements as part of the 4 National Circuit development in Canberra. Working with the architectural team from Fender Katsalidis, the landscape design team at Oculus and the Client, ISPT, we developed a lighting strategy for the precinct and surrounding public realm interfaces.

With two separate 6 and 7 storey office developments on the site, a unifying lighting system was developed to ensure the entire precinct was linked together visually and functionally complied with the relevant Australian Standards and security requirements.

Design considerations as part of the development of the lighting strategy focused on not only the visual experience but, also with the performance of both the 4 National Circuit and adjacent 2 National Circuit security systems. As a 5 star Green Star rated development, external light pollution was also carefully managed.
