After discovering we’d be working on this commercial project in Malaysia, we admittedly spent a good ten minutes screaming with excitement and Googling all the best places for laksa. After that though, we immediately got stuck in to one of our greatest opportunities to date.
The Client Presentation Centre consists of office and conference space for a data company, and our job was to design a lighting design scheme that would reflect their refined corporate identity and the technological nature of their work. We used mainly unobtrusive ceiling and floor lighting to give the place a calm, clean and “uncluttered” atmosphere, but added a few special touches to certain objects inside the building – such as the company’s central processing server in the main reception area, which is encased within a chilled display cabinet. We chose to bathe it in a cool blue wash of LED light to make it a real feature of the space.
The conference rooms are used by the company in many different ways, at various times of day. We gave these rooms a flexible lighting control system that responds to both daylight levels and the presence of people, helping to reduce energy costs and encourage sustainability. The system has multiple light modes, to provide just the right atmosphere for each occasion.
