Dangrove Arts Centre

Linear lighting solutions with impressive continuous runs spanning over 40 meters

Dangrove is a new 10,000sq m, secure state-of-the-art storage facility designed for both the storage of a globally significant collection of contemporary Chinese art, and as a creative environment for art curation, conservation and interaction. 



The building is designed by Tzannes Architects to museum standards with a 100-year life and engineered for the lowest net energy use and carbon footprint Steensen Varming with final electrical documentation by Simpson Kotzman

Linear lighting elements are a major design factor throughout the facility and is used in areas as diverse as the corridors storage rooms, loading dock (IP55 Profiles), and gallery areas. Many of the spaces employed high CRI 90+ LED boards to ensure colours were rendered truly

Austube have been a major supplier for all the linear components of the project with some continuous runs in excess of 40 metres down the central storage corridors and unique custom fittings encompassing alternate components of linear LED diffused sections interspersed with sections of track lighting embedded into the profile 

"Due to the very large volume of Austube linear profiles specified on the job initially there was some concern of project delivery, coordination and quality, however working with the Austube team immediately gave us comfort both from the company's strong technical knowledge and "can do" attitude, continually going over and above to ensure Infinity delivered an excellent final product to the client - we would not hesitate to work with the Austube team on future major projects"
