About the project

NDYLIGHT worked with the architecture and interior design teams from Fender Katsalidis and the client, ISPT to develop the lighting strategy to the separate foyers to the two towers and reception link of this major Canberra office building, joining them together. The lighting strategy to each of the three spaces was designed to provide a subtly different visual outcome to create different environments with only key features used to link the interior treatments of each space.

With two separate seven storey office developments on the site a large amount of public realm space was provided and a visually cohesive lighting solution was required to these areas to bind the site together. As such, a unifying lighting approach was developed to ensure that the whole precinct was linked together visually while functionally, it complied with the relevant Australian Standards and security requirements of the precinct.
