Helena Bay EstateOcean Lighting
The secluded Helena Bay Estate in Northland provides a luxurious haven in complete privacy. Ocean was approached by Ewen Cafe of 3D Lighting Design to work out a solution for the Banya Wing steam room and sauna areas as well as the plunge pool and main pool lighting.
The brief for colour changing linear lighting for underwater lighting and high temperature spaces like the sauna was challenging for LED luminaires, so our approach was to use Fibre Optics with remotely located light engines.
Side emitting fibre in the pool and sauna together with starfields and spotlights in the main pool and infinity pool 'weir' made for beautiful effect.
DMX control via a Cueserver 2 stored the colour changing scenes and was interfaced with the Crestron home automation system installed by Liquid Automation. With the distant location away from suburbia, we can manage scene and colour changes remotely by logging in via ethernet connection.
