2018 was a year filled with inspiring collaborative projects. One of which saw us travel to the Singapore Garden Festival. Held in the heart of Singapore’s new downtown Marina Bay and Gardens by The Bay precinct, Sydney landscape designer and horticulturist Myles Baldwin presented an intuitive contemporary design inspired by the great Victorian planting schemes and colonial Singaporean black and white Bungalow.
The landscape was set around two curved walls designed to create a stage for planting arrangements and specimen trees. Between the walls; a path, constructed from locally-sourced recycled stone, highlighted the natural beauty of Singapore’s local materials. The contrast against the built form was the perfect setting for our Up/Down Wall Lights drawing visitors to wander at leisure around the path at night.
Palm and succulent species provided height, whilst lush foliage including equatorial perennials, offered a rich spectrum of contrasting hues. Our Accent Lights projected onto feature trees and by changing the light beam angle drew attention to the graduating foliage, textures and colours.
The combination of award-winning design and innovative lighting blended seamlessly and we were thrilled to collaborate with Myles for the bespoke design and world class event. We would like to extend our congratulations to Myles who was awarded Silver for Equatorial Gardenesque.
