Wish Bruce

Proud to be involved in the “Wish” development located in Bruce, Canberra with the creative collaborative of TP Dynamics and AURORA Design. At the marketing launch last Friday, we were entertained and humbled by the words of TP Dynamics Founding Director Tony Pan, on his vision for Bruce and the value he places on people and relationships.

Having visited Japan in 2016, I was delighted to find these images in Pinterest. I drove past the Nagakin Capsule Tower (photo below) designed by Kisho Kurowaka and always wanted to know what it looked like inside. Some lessons to learn from this 1972 building on how to design micro, affordable housing for the masses.

a buzzing greenwood plaza

Design work for Mirvac, at Greenwood Plaza, was completed end of 2012 by Crone Partners Architects and Interiors, on a number of projects including ceiling and lighting treatments, as well as respite seating. These works are currently under construction creating a buzz around the centre. Retailers and shoppers alike, are appreciating the efforts made by the Design Team to modernise the centre, which was in need of a serious make-over.

The new ceiling and lighting treatments at Greenwood Shopping Plaza, is nearly complete in 2 major zones, with a further 5 zones programmed to rejuvenation the Plaza over coming months. The design of the upper level lighting, looked at creating an artificial atrium light, similar to the existing atriums at the centre, where you see the branches of large trees through the glass roof.

The lighting is connected to a computer system allowing the light feature, termed the “birds nest” to change colour or work on a programmed loop of colours. The lighting system and design was developed through a collaborative design approach, with Crone Partners, Mirvac, Barrisol, Mainbrace and Philips Lighting.
