The lighting design concept was developed to create a point of difference from the rest of Crown’s hospitality offerings. The client wanted to create a warm and cosy atmosphere using a simple, clean palette of materials. The lighting played a role in creating this – the venue was not to feel like the rest of the casino, the lighting design was to promote a feeling of bonhomie, consistent with a casual watering hole with great food, drinks and atmosphere.
As is typical for a Crown venue, there is more to the lighting than meets the eye. For a start, the majority of the lighting is LED and behind the light fixtures sits a sophisticated lighting control system that provides fine tuning and scene setting for various times of day. This sophistication and depth of design is perhaps illustrated best by the bottle wall. The wall comprises hundreds of VB ‘stubby’ bottles – an interesting enough feature in itself – but behind each of the bottles is an individual RGB LED fixture, each fully addressable using the sort of technology typically used to control media facades.
This time last week we visited the 18th Biennale of Sydney.
