Façade & Architectural Lighting Design

 

RAMUS’ specialist architectural lighting designs are unlike any other, bringing the spectacular to every project.

Our Work

The team has produced a diverse range of façade and architectural lighting designs, from intimate illuminated installations at building entryways, to multi-level building façades that are interactive on an impressive scale.

Some examples of our large scale architectural illumination projects include:

Light House: 888 Collins Street

Where the use of a live weather feed is interpreted in real-time into beautiful digital visualisations of rainfall, sun and wind displayed across a 22 storey building.

Wavelength

Where 396m of façade is programmed to display a choreographed light show, of moving abstract content programmed to correspond with the daily flow of human activity.

Wintergarden

The work spans an entire block showing over 180 hours of RAMUS curated digital media content.

Luminous: Darling Quarter

One of the world’s largest interactive light display, Luminous is powered by 100% renewable energy generated by solar panels affixed to the roof and offers a breathtaking permanent backdrop of warmth and connection for the community.

Jupiters Hotel and Casino

We integrated one of Australia's largest permanent façade projections, displaying high-resolution creative content all year round.

Riverside Quay

This light artwork subtly traces the undulating seams of the façade surface, drawing patrons along the Southbank Promenade into surrounding laneways and public spaces.

Our Approach

Lighting can be powerful in enhancing and articulating a building or interior space. As specialist lighting design consultants  we integrate the lighting in such a way that the architecture becomes a creative canvas to express. RAMUS values collaboration and exploration as part of our process, working alongside, architects, builders and urban designers throughout the life of the project.

  • Understanding Stakeholders

    We work out what the project is wanting to communicate - this could come from the history of the site, community or current stakeholders who have a vision for the building.
  • Concept Design

    This is where we begin to creatively develop and visualise your project.
  • Community Engagement

    We always seek a level of interaction and collaboration with the community to enhance and deepen the experience of the façade.
  • Design Development

    The design is technically developed and detailed and content options are explored in readiness for content production and construction and installation.
  • Custom Fixtures

    Due to the innovative nature of our designs often what we are envisioning isn't on the market so we work with manufacturers and invent bespoke fixtures.
  • Tender support

    Our team includes construction specialists, so we can help with the tender process and supplier selection.
  • Construction Installation

    Working with the builders, electricians and lighting and screen suppliers we ensure the quality of our designs are maintained during this phase.
  • Content

    If the canvas is the façade, the content is the paint. Whether its high-resolution cinematic content, figurative, abstract or interactive we custom make content consistent with the creative narrative and vision of your project produced ready for testing on-site.
  • Programming

    Is the final stage to bring the work to life. Our creative and technical team work on site to program the content onto the facade via our CORE control system. Our proprietary light and media management software enables remote programming and full automation.

“The first light installation of its kind, our reactive luminous skin interprets incoming weather data and translates it into beautiful digital visualisations.”
