Lighting : April 2010 Whos Who of Lighting
2009 IESANZ INtErNAtIoNAl lIghtINg AwArdS IES A WARDS been the result of the construction process but they pass unnoticed to the untrained eye. The building is flooded with daylight: a pleasant departure from the usual gloominess of galleries. The daylight is carefully controlled in sensitive areas by the use of motorised blinds. When these are closed the daylight appearance is maintained by uplighting washes onto the blinds. Transluscent laylights are also used to control the daylight. These have electric lighting that maintains the appearance at night. The lighting also lights the architecture in an intensional, rather than haphazard manner. The result is a building with light, not a building with light pasted onto it. The gallery staff are delighted with the outcome and the building (and its exhibits) is very popular with the public. While the gallery is small ands free from the risks museum fatigue it still includes vistas through windows to the FIGURE 12.

The store is typical of many telephone retail outlets in that it occupies a small but prime position in a shopping centre with many other shops and other distractions nearby. The products being sold – mobile phones – are small and need to be displayed not under glass, as a few years ago when the phones were simply phones but now have to be displayed in a way that customers can test their functionality. As well, the outlet uses backlit display panels containing promotional material adjacent to flat screen video displays. This project was the first of a standard design that Telecom NZ will roll-out to most of its retail outlets. The project is so successful because the lighting isn’t intrusive nor does it produce glare or unwanted reflections in what is sharp clean light of Canberra. At night, there are views into the gallery, providing views to pedestrians. suPPLIeRs: Erco, Xenian, Sylvania, Hawko, Xal, Bega, Iguzzini, Targetti FIGURE 13.
