As part of Macquarie University’s continuing upgrades to it’s campus, Jadecross had the pleasure of contributing to the illumination of Wally’s Walk, affectionately named after Dr Walter V Abraham, the University’s Architect planner from 1965 to 1983. The building required functional, glare free pathway illumination as well as an emphasis on its architecture using light and colour.

ERCO IP65 Wallwashers were selected to light the corridors under the eaves of 18 Wally’s Walk, uniformly illuminating the thoroughfare for students and staff members during operation hours. Adding to this, ERCO Skim downlights with an oval flood beam were used to create a clean line of light, forming inviting, even pathway lighting. 3500K was selected to seamlessly harmonise with the natural colour temperatures of both daylight and night time.

Using the louvred alcoves as an opportunity for articulation, Aria RGBW linear luminaires by Coolon has been carefully positioned. Grazing intermittent sections of the exterior to create a sense of interest while the colour changing element creates a vertical, everchanging artwork for passers-by.
