Darling Harbour, a cultural and recreational district in Sydney, is just a stone’s throw away from the metropolitan city centre and offers a huge variety of leisure and entertainment facilities, including hotels, restaurants, cafés, shopping centres, museums, and attractive open spaces.
Connecting three brand new venues – the Theatre, the Exhibition Centre and the International Convention Centre – the 450m long Darling Harbour Boulevard has been recently illuminated by a smart, multifunctional street lighting system. The brief for the boulevard illumination called for discrete looking street lights, with a minimal design which at the same time could incorporate many different functions. The appointed planners wanted to integrate additional features, including coloured eﬀect lighting as well as loudspeakers, cameras and power supply options, into a minimalist and attractive lighting structure, adopting a smart and multifunctional lighting concept in order to make the outdoor space more pleasant by day and night.
