Custom luminaires were supplied by Aglo Systems to the Canterbury Leagues Club in Belmore, NSW as part of a large architectural lighting project.

One of Sydney’s premier hospitality destinations with 5-star amenities including restaurants, coffee shops, multiple bars and entertainment lounges as well as a 24-hour health club, Canterbury Leagues Club is currently being refurbished in a staged development process.

Engaged to supply lighting for the refurbishment project at the club, Aglo Systems’ Custom Design and Manufacture team has been involved in the concept ideation and fabrication process of numerous light features across three tender packages. By August 2017, Aglo had already delivered eight fittings located around the café and corridor, library, banquette and lounge areas. Another nine items are either in design progress or awaiting installation. 

The custom luminaires are the final outcome of a creative design collaboration involving Aglo, Point of View lighting designers and Altis architects.

The B-PL6B Pavilion Pendant, installed in the Bakehouse Café, went through several changes using 3D modelling and render programs. Made from various aluminium machining processes and electroplated in brushed dark brass, the pendant is illuminated by 12 low voltage G4 LED lamps covered by an ice crystal glass sphere.

The design of the DPL8 ceiling mounted light feature, also situated within the Bakehouse Café, went through several iterations as part of the creative collaboration. Fabricated using both steel and glass, ten of these lights are installed in a row parallel to the exterior window. The glass is blown and shaped specially to suit the steel work in a dark bronze finish. This fitting has two light sources: an LED module placed in its centre for downward light and an LED strip placed around the top surface to illuminate the ceiling.

Six DPL4 pendants have been installed at the Bakehouse Café, each light featuring a 550mm diameter smoked orange hand-blown glass shape with a contrasting dark brass finish frame work. A decorative filament LED bulb illuminates this pendant.

DPL3 is one of two corridor feature lights that the Aglo team helped manufacture; Aglo supplied the 200mm diameter frosted glass sphere that attaches to the vertical beam with the sphere illuminated by an E14 lamp.

The second corridor light feature, DPL5 pendant features a 100mm diameter cylinder that is almost 1.5m in length. Suspended from decorative rods with a brushed aluminium body in a dark brass finish and an opal acrylic cylinder base, the fitting features polished brass decorative rings and walnut timber end caps, and is illuminated by a single strip of LED tape.
