Mission: Provide a fully customizable, colour changeable lighting control system without disturbing the structure of a heritage building in the heart of Fremantle. Challenge accepted.

Fremantle Arts Centre, built back in the 1860's is one of many history rich, fascinating buildings situated in Fremantle, Western Australia. Previously used as an asylum, a hospital, a school and now a fantastic space to showcase the best music, arts, dance, theatre and exhibitions WA has to offer.

The WA Electric Company have been able to repurpose existing power points with high power RGB DMX controlled luminaires supplied by Integrated Power to accentuate the Australian gothic architecture and bring the building to life. Digging trenches or any disturbance of the ground previously made the project unfeasible, Casambi overcame this issue.

Casambi to DMX controllers have been installed at each luminaire and communicate wirelessly to form a strong mesh around the perimeter of the building. Each device has the capability to run independently or as a group allowing the Arts Centre staff to create colourful scenes in line with exhibitions and World events. The project was commissioned by Holders Technology based on a schedule that means the building will illuminate in a warm white from sunset til midnight unless an event is on. The first event scheduled being 'Fire & Ice' meant the building would be lit in glowing orange and blue colours slowly fading in to each other every night for a few weeks.

Rohan Murray, Production Manager at Fremantle Arts Centre - "The Casambi façade lighting system has opened a new world of options in the visual presentation of the Fremantle Arts Centre that were previously only available as project specific options.

Changes of colour related to exhibitions, special events, seasons and even sporting codes-go dockers-can be achieved in a matter of minutes from any mobile device.

Hirers and visitors to the centre comment on the big impact of the lighting states that allow us to offer a little bit more to the Arts Centre experience. Thank you Holders Technology!"
