River of Lights
The Lobby for Sydney`s `Gateway` building includes the design concept to upgrade the existing interior lobby, upgrade to the building entrances, entry access and facade , entry landscape concept, branding/landmark feature artwork, feature cafe & restaurant and the base building upgrade. Tennants include Credit Suisse, Bloombergs, British & Italian Embassy.
`River of Lights` The concept for the river of lights was an intuitive response to the irregular shape of the existing lobby floor plan. Various shapes where tested and modelled in sketchup, a cardboard model made and preliminary costs developed. The final layout was determined by regular panel types with pre-drilled setouts, then arranged in an irregular way to give the illusion of a random crystaline sculpture. The client then informally named the lighting feature `river of lights`.
