THE ILLUMINATION FOR BOX HILL CENTRAL references a harmonious marriage between futuristic and natural elements

Intersecting with local community & cultural influences to create a conceptual and function-driven approach.

The revamp of Box Hill Central saw the opportunity to collab with the team from Vicinity Centres to provide the lighting design.  

The rotunda area features Shoji lightbox Pendants. These are illuminated fabric disks created by digitally printing textured Japanese paper and the gentle hint of Ginko tree branch imagery onto the stretched fabric to create pools of light. It was designed to conjure notions of windows peering out to nature and surveying its beauty. 

The hallmark is Mesh caged ceiling features with internal tube clusters that run through the main thoroughfare. It draws its lighting concept from the intricacy of Shibuya Crossing meets futuristic digitised sci-fi.

The food and beverages area near the entrance showcases decorative lighting in the form of Panorama in Terracotta Shroud. Panorama is from the Australian-made Symphony range. 

Providing functional illumination for shopping and foot traffic was obviously a critical consideration. Track spots create pools of light, rod-mounted Rolls provide Auxiliary lighting, and Cognitos help with the circulation lighting.

Shoutouts to all the team at Vicinity, Buchan, Techne, ADP, Stowe, Maben, Case Meallin & Zimmerman Industries.
