The owner of a historic wool store in Dunedin asked Rexel for help with lighting for the building's restoration.
Number 123 Vogel Street is a two-storey building with a 4 meter stud, kauri beams, trusses and floor timbers, and double brick walls.
The ground floor was tenanted but the first and second floors were empty and rundown. The owner wanted to restore the building while respecting its history, using light to draw attention to the architecture.
The challenge of this project was to ensure appropriate, comfortable levels of task light, staying in keeping with this heritage building.
Since its opening in 1894 St Patrick’s Basilica in Dunedin has been a place of worship and a focal point for the local community.
