Joseph-Rouleau Cultural Complex
The approach behind this project was to create a lighting display intended to sublimate the artworks and exhibitions presented in the upper gallery of the center.
A series of over 100 high quality, corrosion resistant and robust projectors were installed in direct view. This strategic positioning of the fixtures was chosen to compliment the modern architecture of the building.
XYZ teams installed a series of 36 classic multi-color floodlights that illuminate the building from the bottom up. This choice allows the multiple architectural details of the façade to stand out and it also enhances the height of the building.
Through an ingenious remote-control system, the lighting can be modified to emphasize certain events. Thus, some sixty dates such as Valentine’s Day or New Year’s Day can be highlighted by distinct lighting effects.
The main challenge was to create custom-made mounting bases anchored to the ground, so as not to alter the building. The selected spotlights had to be perfectly adapted to their environment and be able to withstand the particularly windy weather conditions of the city.
The municipality gave XYZ Technologies carte blanche in the process of designing and integrating the lighting systems for both buildings. Our teams were able to demonstrate their inventiveness and ingenuity in order to make this project coherent, while still respecting a reasonable budget.
Both projects were unanimously welcomed by the client, but also by the population who were delighted with the embellishment of their city’s downtown.
