This prestigious project was a huge challenge as the lighting requirements tabled by the Advocates were quite onerous. This meant many hours of virtual light modelling to select just the right luminaries and lamps to ensure that the lighting scheme lived up to expectations.
Fittings were chosen from manufacturers in Canada and Germany, special gold reflectors with antiglare coatings were selected to ensure no stray light caught the eye despite the gallery and double height library shelving.
The gold reflectors gave a soft light more akin to incandescent despite the fact the lamps were predominantly fluorescent.
Each work station has it’s own task lighting and dimming to ensure whatever time the Advocates are working they can create just the right lighting effect and ambience.
