The lighting system at the Biodôme requires special attention to simulate the natural lighting of each ecosystem as closely as possible.
XYZ was asked to provide and install a water- and moisture-resistant system that would not alter the temperature and environment of the aquariums and vivariums. Our experts opted for 20 Graze Compact Powercore luminaires and 30 eW Burst Powercore gen2 luminaires from Color Kinetics. The units were custom-made to the specifications of the Biodôme’s habitat specialists, operating at 5700 degrees Kelvin to replicate the light levels fish and reptiles are exposed to in nature.
This solution developed by the lighting designer at Octochrome and put forward by XYZ will help maintain optimal living conditions within the Biodôme ecosystems while maximizing the visitor experience at various wildlife observation points.
