Lakeside Joondalup is the largest shopping centre in Western Australia and is located approximately 25km north of Perth CBD. The complex represents a central community meeting place with multiple retail and recreational precincts.
A key feature of the redeveloped shopping centre is the entrance with a new single cable catenary lighting system. The high level cables in the system stretch above the feature trees and provide adequate mood and directional lighting to create a visual jewel that welcomes visitors entering the centre and warms the immediate environment for diners in the adjoining open restaurants.
The individual cables and luminaires were modelled and connections designed to ensure that the cable loads could be accommodated by the mating building structures, leaving a footprint completely free of poles and other support structures.
