The interactive light installation, Sunray is intended to welcome guests home at Oasis by Crown…
The threshold of a residential building forms an important boundary where people transition from the public domain into the privacy of the home. As our population shifts toward apartment living in built up urban centres the importance of the threshold becomes all the more important. Sunray is intended as a gesture to warmly welcome residents as they arrive home.
Crown Group approached Ramus to design and develop an interactive artwork for the entrance to their new Oasis development. They wanted a work that had impact, but would also blend into the architecture. Within the constraints of a tight budget we created an interactive artwork that displays softly glowing silhouettes in response to the human form.
Being engaged early in the development process meant we were able to design the infrastructure on which the artwork would sit. This meant we were able to fully integrate the fixtures into the fabric of the building, providing a seamless experience.
The end result is a subtle yet eye-catching interactive light artwork, which marks the entrance to the building and provides a warm, welcoming experience as you travel from the street into the foyer.
