NGV External Lighting
A comprehensive external lighting strategy for NGV in St Kilda Road which integrates several components into the heritage fabric of the iconic existing building.
This project has several components as part of a comprehensive external lighting strategy for National Gallery of Victoria in St Kilda Road. With lighting concepts and technical expertise provided by Electrolight, Workshop Architecture worked in collaboration to integrate these into the heritage fabric of the iconic existing building. Archway lighting is embedded in the forecourt at the springing points of the entry archway, banner lighting is embedded in the projecting eave soffits to the south and east, soffit lighting is mounted within the zig zag clerestory to the whole building perimeter and wall wash lighting is submerged in the moat (to the south and east) and in the garden beds (to the north). All had significant technical, aesthetic and heritage considerations to overcome including the Heritage Victoria approval process and the daily operations of an highly active public building. All lights are three channel(RGB) LED fittings which allowing subtle but extensive colour range adjustment so as thematically tailor lighting effects from on exhibition to the next.
