QT Melbourne Hotel

Donn Salisbury, Rosa Arcaya, Ryan Shamier (Electrolight)

Architect - Angelo Candalepas & Associates Interior Designer Public Areas - Nicholas Graham & Associates Interior Designer Guest Suites - Indyk Architects Builder – BUILT

QT Melbourne is the latest installation of this stylish and edgy hotel brand. Electrolight were appointed lighting designers to work alongside Nic Graham & Associates and Indy Architects to create a hotel experience unlike any other. The result is an eclectic mix of art, sophistication and character. The brief was delightfully elastic, requesting a lighting approach which pushed the barriers of excitement, quirkiness, intimacy and discovery. Nestled in the centre of town on Russell Street, the design for QT Melbourne was to provide a reflection of the intelligent, sexy, sophisticated and artistic character of the Melbourne CBD. One of the client’s primary brief elements was that all lighting features were to be unique to this location, and not able to be seen at another hotel or establishment. This extended the lighting design scope to the design of many bespoke luminaires.

Judges’ Comments

A Boutique hotel with dozens of intuitively crafted bespoke luminaries. These design elements enhance the guests experience and bring glamour and a sense of playfulness to each space. The effort to ensure a high level of detail in every area is evident.

The Forum

Fay Greenhalgh & Adam de Guara (Glowing Structures)

Architect - Trethowan Architecture Interior Designer – Jackson Interiors Builder – SOMA Building Electrician – BJW Electrical

The main criteria was to ensure the heritage details of the historic building were retained and that light fittings complemented the space rather than compete with the interior. The Foyer was a challenging space due to the double height domed ceiling and the increased lighting requirement to the stairways. After researching the history of the building Glowing Structures worked with the existing and enhanced the starry sky feature which was synonymous with the original foyer. The twinkling sky effect is achieved with a varying size of deep recessed, concealed, high powered downlights, in a random star arrangement which provides the ability to transform the lighting from an ambient, low level lighting scene to a high level of illumination for cleaning and practicalities. With the Auditorium the emphasis was to retain the original look and feel, whilst defining and accentuating the hidden gems around the multi-use space. High Output linear LED lighting was installed in recessed coves to enhance the architectural detail and double up as ‘house/cleaning lights’ when higher levels of illumination are required. The back of the banquettes were highlighted using a bare LED light source concealed within a bespoke brass mounting to emphasis the “cricket bat” design and create a dramatic effect.

Judges’ Comments

What an amazing canvas to have the opportunity to create a spectacular lighting composition and effects. A surprise around every corner. Quite a few risks were taken that certainly paid off. Magic.

Twig House

Jess Perry, Dimitrios Tsiokaras (Electrolight)

Architect - Leeton Pointon Interior Designer – Allison Pye Interiors Builder – LBA Construction Group

Twig House was conceived as sculpture – melding architecture, interior and landscape into one. Curved monumental concrete forms, devoid of architectural embellishment, rise out of the landscape, & are balanced by tactile materiality exploring the fluidity of form and light, enclosure and expansiveness. The design is based on minimal elegance, precision and integration. Illumination flows organically from the built form, exuding a warm and seductive glow, imparting depth and composition. The intent was to present the architecture as the hero, allowing lighting to be one with it. The aim for the lighting was to create a comfortable, relaxed and functional lighting solution for the residents and to honour the architecture such that the lighting becomes part of the built fabric – expressing the bold geometry, revealing architectural materials and volumes completing a harmony of design. The light guides and reveals with a coherent language that is theatrical yet restrained. In the gardens, light leads and supports an exploration of the spaces, plants and trees. It softens edges and reveals textures in a deliberate and restrained scheme that is cognisant of an inner urban location and consideration of the night sky.

Judges’ Comments

Unique private residence. The lighting was heavily considered with a 5 year design journey to keep up with the latest lighting technology. Strategic placement and the reservation to not over light the project was exceptional.

The fixture was designed to take up as little space in elevation as possible and hide a number of services present in the open ceiling cavity whilst remaining true to the concept of fermentation and wine associated semantics. It also had to be versatile enough to allow for multiple dining options below while still providing a functional warm and soft light emission. The idea of a bubbling champagne fermentation process was presented using a combination of LED and traditional lamps with amber colouration utilizing the efficiency and longevity of LED. A sequencer was used to further accentuate the fermentation analogy with the slow rising of light output and then arbitrarily rapidly dimming to simulate the bubble bursting on the surface. The lamps are simply hooked onto the mesh grid and can be removed for maintenance.

Judges’ Comments

10,980 incandescent lamps - A Mesmerising and enchanting installation. The time, effort and passion involved in delivering this was clear. An amazing scale of craftsmanship and creativity. A true masterpiece.
