sopoThe Sopo Del Office Towers and Lifestyle Centre is mixed-use development
Indonesia - To enhance the architecture of the Sopo Del Office Towers and Lifestyle Centre in Jakarta, Chayolite recently installed Martin by Harman lighting fixtures.
The Sopo Del Office Towers and Lifestyle Centre is mixed-use development featuring office spaces, premium retail stores and a lavish hotel. The complex consists of a massive 41-floor tower, a smaller 28-floor tower and a shared lifestyle centre. Sopo Del’s architecture and design showcases an interpretation of North Sumatra’s ulos heritage and value, representing bravery and strength.
In order to accentuate the buildings’ ulos-inspired design with immersive lighting, Sopo Del hired leading lighting and acoustic consultants PT. Litac to deploy a cutting-edge lighting display. To accomplish this task, Litac designed a lighting solution consisting of Martin Exterior Dot-HP fixtures.
“We wanted to emphasize Sopo Del’s ulos pattern and height,” said Hestu Widinugroho, Litac. “This was done using Martin Exterior Dot-HP LED fixtures and linear up-light systems with warm white color, giving a continuous flowing effect from the body to the crown of the building. The dynamic Dot-HP fixtures accentuated the diamond shape of the building, making for an exciting overall visual experience.
“One of the challenges our supplier faced during the installation was the placement of the Dot-HP fixtures in their precise locations while protecting them from exposure. We are thankful to the team at Martin Professional APAC for being so helpful in programming and achieving the perfect solution for the building’s façade.”
Litac deployed a total of 510 Martin Exterior Dot-HP RGB fixtures on the exterior of the Sopo Del buildings. Their design allows for long fixture runs with variable pixel pitches, enabling a wide variety of different looks. The system was connected using 12 Martin RDM 5.5 Splitter units.
“We required a lighting solution that could highlight the architecture’s cultural motifs,” said a spokesperson for Sopo Del Office Towers and Lifestyle Centre. “Since the foundation of the building is based upon the ulos heritage representing bravery and strength, we wanted the lighting systems to reflect this design feature. The solutions we received from Litac and Harman have certainly met our expectations and have brought out the true grandeur of the building along with our country’s heritage.”
