Aglo Systems supplied custom feature lights for the luxury Fawkner apartments located on St. Kilda Road, South Yarra, VIC. A newly built 20-level apartment complex featuring 253 luxury hotel-inspired apartments, The Fawkner incorporates four different types of feature lights developed by Aglo’s Custom Design and Manufacturing team.
Aglo Systems worked with Vast Electrical Services, Icon Builders and K.P.D.O Architects to complete this project.
Of the four feature lights installed throughout this high rise building, the first pendant can be seen in the reception area. Two versions of a cubed style pendant were designed and created, each with a different type of finish - brushed light brass on one and polished nickel on the other. Manufacturing techniques such as metal folding, welding, polishing and electroplating were used for the pendants. While the brushed brass cube pendant version is located above the reception desk, the polished nickel pendant is on the opposite side, in the residents’ meeting room.
Additionally, Aglo’s Custom Design team also developed a large branch-shaped pendant for placement above the meeting table. Manufactured using milled and cast metal techniques, this pendant features glass blown shades.
The fourth architectural light feature for this project is located in the wine room where a chandelier is installed over the centre of the dining table and incorporates three layers of moulded glass tubes in orange, clear and frosted colouring. The manufacturing process included methods such as metal rolling, folding, welding and polishing for the frame of the chandelier, and moulding and sandblasting for the glass components.
All design and engineering work was completed by Aglo’s in-house professionals, who also assisted with the onsite installation.
