Hotbeam Lights Up UTS Broadway

Hotbeam’s range of German LED Linear products were called upon to solve the issue of facade lighting of the new University of Technology Sydney (UTS) Facility of Engineering and Information Technology building in Broadway.


July 24th, 2014

The architect wanted the hollows in the fins to shine light onto the binary aluminium screen facade.  A tube based lighting technology was proposed originally.  This was ultimately rejected due to a range of reasons.

The Hotbeam LED Linear VarioLED Flex Venus product was called upon to perform the task of lighting the facade.  The VarioLED Flex Venus produces an even and dot-free light.  It is made of a blend of polyurethane and is UV resistant.  The construction is water-resistant to IP67 and is flexible.  Installation was simple using a series of strategically placed stainless steel mounting clips.  What’s more, the ravishing green coloured Venus only uses 7.7 watts of energy every meter.


The LED products are part of a series of planned improvements to the project.
