Hampshire Road Underpass

Victoria, Australia

We worked closely with our sister company Eagle Lighting. Revitalising the lighting of a dilapidated underpass on Hampshire Road in Sunshine, Victoria.

This project was part of a new thoroughfare leading to Metro Trains Sunshine Station. It was brought to life with vibrant street art by a local graffiti artist whose work adorned the existing walls of Hampshire Road underpass. Bespoke Tuscan 89 Angled luminaires were installed end-to-end for ease of installation. They provide excellent light uniformity within the space, making it a welcoming and safe environment for pedestrians. Another requirement was that glare from the lighting was controlled so as not to negatively affect the graffiti artwork.

The concept for the space was to make each concrete panel a “picture frame”. It needed lighting that is very robust as it is accessible to the public. We also customised the light output of the luminaires. This created a balanced luminous intensity to “bring out” the life and colour of the graffiti artwork.

“Designplan was selected not only due to the quality of their fittings, but their wiliness to adjust their standard offering to suit this project’s particular requirements. The Designplan team was willing to investigate and adjust the lumen package requested of their fixtures to a very low fix output as required for this installation.”
