THE MARC | 129 RIVONIA
SANDTON | GAUTENG
GENERAL MALL AREAS
The Mall itself provides shoppers who live and work in the nearby Sandton area with convenient shopping, restaurants and a gym. The entrances to the mall are lined with the Argo Post top leading from the street toward the entrance overhang. The overhang is highlighted by suspended Aldo's up to 4.2m with an up and down light source.
The MARC has a glass roof with support beams that required a unique, high output fitting that would blend seamlessly into the design and so the Floren 30W 1500lm was supplied. The Floren was also recessed into the wooden slatted ceilings throughout. Recessed into the ceilings edges above the interior passage and walkways is an adapted black Jura track light at 24W. Restroom passages within the mall have unique Linear Mini fittings with RGB in order to create a unique ambiance. The parking and basement level is lined with Shuttle wall mounted fittings that provide adequate lighting to account for the minimal ceiling area that would have been used for ceiling mounted fittings.
LANDSCAPE LIGHTING AREAS
The landscape surrounding the MARC Precinct features numerous fittings in different applications including the Shuttle Trunion mounted 18W fitting on an 11m pole as well as in all planters throughout the building.
The Miso recessed wall light provides low level light on stairways and low level boundary walls whilst the Malta Bollard plinth mounted 16W at a 700mm height in all planter and lawn terraces provides pathway lighting. For the key amenity lighting throughout all landscape areas at the MARC, we used the Argo Post top 54W. The entrances to the mall are lined with the Argo Post top leading from the street toward the entrance overhang.
The MARC has multiple entrances and stairways and a special request for a linear light source that mimicked the right angles of the stairways, and portrayed a sense of direction was required and so the Linear Inca was supplied. Upper level stairway and escalator landings were supplied with custom Jura 24W 36° track mounted in a recessed cavity in the ceiling.
Lower level and basement parking landings featured the Perox Nexio recessed downlights at 24W 50° beam. Within the main shopping mall, stairways between various levels featured the recessed Floren 30W fittings.
UNIQUE FEATURE LIGHTING
We were requested to create a unique suspended fitting with a bi-directional light source that would create an exquisite feature on the ceiling as well as provide the required functional light output on the floor. The fitting is cylindrical and is suspended at 3 points, the internal wall of the cylinder is gold in colour.
A truly unique fitting, locally designed and custom manufactured specifically for the client's requirement.
