The architecture is based around the shape of a ‘dragon’s curve’, reminiscent of a reptilian tail in color and form, with sloping sides that encircle the building. Much of the building is made with translucent walls, which gave us the opportunity to install some exciting decorative lighting.
The main curve of the ‘dragon’, a sloping corridor which wraps around the exterior of the building, has clear glazing at the front and a semi-transparent wall board behind. This area is lit with Philips Color Kinetics iColor Cove QLX and ColorBlast Powercore fixtures, which produce a varying cycle of coloured light that inspires viewers both outside and inside the building.
A similar effect is used in the main entrance, drawing visitors through to the main atrium area where there is an ‘art ceiling’ installation. The swirling shapes of the ceiling are masterfully lit with the compact iColor Cove QLX, which was suited for the application as it could fit in the limited space. This creative use of color changing LED extends to the show home, where visitors are wowed with amazing architecture and luxurious lighting.
Thanks to the impressive and inspiring lighting, the Farglory building shows visitors the same level of high quality that is associated with all of its constructions.
