Light Culture has completed work on the lighting for 8 Chifley, an iconic commercial tower in Sydney’s CBD
June 17th, 2015
With such an iconic building, the lighting concept was all about connection, both internally and externally. Light Culture’s red LED projectors on the exterior facade examine how lighting could help bring both public and work spaces together in the most sustainable way possible.
With budget an ever present concern in projects of this size, it was important to find ways to enable the lighting installations to achieve aesthetic and sustainability goals while at the same time keeping costs down.
To highlight the sway-bracket and support structure as an architectural feature, the specification and careful placement of red LED lighting dramatically accentuates the finishes of the facade while also reducing energy consumption and light spill. Products for this project were supplied by architecture and design lighting specialist We-ef.
