70 LIGHTING MAGAZINE | December 2016/January 2017 December 2016/January 2017 | LIGHTING MAGAZINE 71 2016 IESANZ INTERNATIONAL LIGHTING DESIGN AWARDS Award of Excellence TO STEENSEN VARMING FOR THE EXTERIOR LIGHTING, AUSTRALIAN WAR MEMORIAL, CANBERRA Designer’s statement: Light articulates the elements, providing definition to the established hierarchy levels of importance in accordance with the AWM, Heritage and City requirements. The lighting reinforces the unique identity of the AWM while being respectful to its purpose, history and architecture. Light radiating out from the inner core symbolizes the heart of the Memorial and creates a night-time image that emphasises its architecture and meaning. Judges’ comments: Excellent and subtle use of light commands a deep respect and emotional response befitting both the fallen soldiers and the architecture. Potential luminaire positions were restricted since the building is exiting, however, an outstanding result was achieved, particularly of the main features such as stained glass windows, the tomb of the unknown soldier and the exterior, including the dome. Architect: JPW Architects Luminaire manufacturers: ACDC, ERCO and Planet Lighting Above: The cloisters containing the Roll of Honour, with its red poppies.

Award of Excellence TO DONN SALISBURY AND CATRIONA SIMMONS OF ELECTROLIGHT FOR WOLLONGONG CENTRAL, WEST KEIRA Designer’s statement: The West Keira project combines interpretive architecture with organically integrated lighting to create an immersive shopping experience. Each element of the West Keira project is unique and bespoke, drawing strong parallels to the surrounding landscape which makes the Illawarra region distinctive. Both natural and artificial light are utilised to enhance the architectural form, finishes and volumes. Judges’ Comments: This small centre of part of a larger one developed over a number of years. Its décor is clever and interesting and the impressively modest (in terms of cost) lighting is outstanding. The public area lighting brightens surfaces without detracting from the shops. A modern, young, subdued atmosphere has been created with clever use of minimalistic lighting schemes. The lighting feel is more that of a high-end hotel rather than that of a regional shopping mall. Wollongong Central’s main atrium is lit by day with daylight and electric light, some reflected from the panelling with continuous wall washing adjacent to the shop fronts. Luminaire manufacturers: 3S Lighting, Aurora Lighting, Eagle Lighting, Euroluce, Darkon, JSB Lighting, Klik Systems, Light Culture, Lighting Project, LiTEsource and Controls, Nocturnal Lighting, Tridonic and Zumtobel Group One of the interior areas of Wollongong Central with a ceiling of colanders (some of which are also luminaires) and columns clad in rolling pins.
