60 LIGHTING MAGAZINE | December 2017/January 2018 December 2017/January 2018 | LIGHTING MAGAZINE 61 2017 IESANZ INTERNATIONAL LIGHTING DESIGN AWARDS 2017 IESANZ INTERNATIONAL LUMINAIRE DESIGN AWARDS Award of Excellence to PointOfView for Parliament of Victoria – Undercroft, Spring St, East Melbourne, VIC Designers’ statement: The Undercroft of Parliament House refers to the 150 year old foundations that, over time, have been adapted as MP’s offices. PointOfView were engaged to redesign the lighting in the public circulation spaces that saw the creation of a fully bespoke lighting design with dramatic accents complemented by soft indirect illumination. Every uplight and spotlight was carefully located due to the irregularities of existing site conditions. The central uplights also act as self-contained cable tray system. The final challenge was the programme: eight weeks from concept design, tender award to completion, with only four weeks onsite during the election campaign. Judges’ comments: Very difficult design situation, including existing, large and obtrusive services and heritage requirements. Almost every element required unique attention. Overall, a simple and elegant solution that lifts the space out of the gloom of the foundations. Luminaire manufacturers: iGuzzini, Inlite, Austube and Philips Dynalite Consulting Engineer: Erbas Engineers Award of Excellence to 3S Lighting for the Barangaroo International Towers Sydney Chandelier Luminaire description and design statement: A collaborative design effort involving Rogers Stirk Harbour and Partners, Speirs and Major and 3S Lighting, for our client Lend Lease, has led to the creation of a unique family of chandeliers for the lobbies of the International Towers at Barangaroo South. The design draws on the principles of traditional chandeliers utilising the same components parts but with contemporary techniques and technology. There’s a light source which has up and down LED modules recessed within aluminium heatsinks; a refractor which scatters light; a spoke-like structure which supports the light sources; a suspension rod which hangs the skeleton within the space, all giving the chandelier form. These components form a kit of parts that allows the chandelier to be reconfigured by adding or taking away elements. As such they can have subtle variations based on their location across the three lobbies. Judges’ comments: The group of outstanding large chandeliers seem to float elegantly in the foyers. Their scale, intricacy, engineering and custom optics provide a superior solution that complements the interior. Well done the whole design and manufacturing team, Australian manufacturing at its best Thanks to: Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners, Speirs + Major and Lend Lease Two views of the undercroft lighting in Victoria’s Parliament House.
