 PEOPLE'S CHOICE REGIONAL WINNERS 

NSW / ACT 
National Boer War Memorial
Group GSA + LAS

 

The lighting design for this simple but evocative project, supports the intent of the
memorial, subtly adding drama and movement. Well detailed and delivered, the
unobtrusive fixtures do not mar the daytime experience of the site, that can be enjoyed at
pedestrian and vehicle levels. Overall an outstanding spatial experience.

Rockhampton Riverside
Urbis

 

This project exemplifies the integration of lighting design within the entirety of the public
realm all brought together by smart networks. Beyond the integration of technologies
though, the lighting design supports the urban landscape and contributes to the activation
and interpretation of the public realm. It understands its context, knows where to be
playful, where to be dramatic, where to be serious and where to be restrained. The
concept of supporting the creation of 'rooms along the street' emphasised by the lighting
design; featuring building façades as well as urban spaces and water features and bold use
of pink give the place a unique and coherent Identity.

VIC / TAS
Monash Caufield
TCL

 

Creating a simple lighting plan, the excellent execution makes the space useable into the
night time hours, further enabling a modern ‘sticky’ campus experience. The warm
ambiance balanced with the mixed use spaces are presented in a well-integrated,
restrained manner. This clean and robust campus space makes good use of the retained
trees and clean lines with the lighting adding to the security of the campus experience.

WA / NT / SA
Railway Square
PLACE Laboratory

 

A dynamic and creative project, the effective lighting of the water line, a suggestion to the
former rail line, contributes to the overall interpretive quality of the site design. A theatrical
yet classy use of light that makes the most of the post-industrial context and boldly
accentuates key interpretive elements of the site in a sophisticated way. The use of colour
and light transfer, light and shade results in an outstanding public access space to be
enjoyed by all ages at all hours.
