CLASSIC AND CUTTING EDGE
Jupiters Hotel & Casino on the Gold Coast have recently invested in a new lighting system for their Porte de Cochere (which is technically a front entrance big enough for a horse and carriage). Blair Terrace from ULA Group worked together with Martin Ferguson from AECOM Sydney and Jupiters Hotel & Casino’s Project Manager Brad Charles on a new design for the entrance. The original brief was to create a classic light bulb matrix look on the new canopy ceiling at the front entrance of the complex. When the venue explored the available options the Anolis ArcDot featuring the latest Cree RGBW multi chips was chosen due to its versatility and colour changing capabilities. The project involved 137 pieces of ArcDots being installed into the ceiling of the entrance, which were then programmed and pixel-mapped to run matrix video effects in different setups and sequences 7 days a week from dusk to dawn. The building management system automates the power to the system and an Ecue Lighting system activates the lighting show every evening. An additional 30 ArcSource 24MC fixtures were also installed in the ceiling of the Porte de Cochere to create saturated colours on the forecourt entrance and valet parking area.
