Ombrae Studios is proud to announce our project in Singapore, 6 Battery Road, has been shortlisted for the STRUCTURES - High Budget category of the 2022 [d]arc awards.

Commissioned by DP Architects in Singapore, and working closely with their internal lighting design division DP Lighting, Ombrae Studios and our manufacturing partner Metal Concepts, along with local sales representative Soluzioni, rose to the challenge of installing this custom soffit above the linkway running the length of the podium. This included optimizing input artwork that echoed the exterior facade's triangulated design motif, creating the perception of dimensional facets, despite the surface only featuring flat Ombrae panels. Additional expert execution included perfect alignment of the sprinkler system penetrating the panels at specified perforated holes, which aligned with the rest of the Ombrae pixel grid. Extensive consultation and collaboration with DP Lighting ensured a beautiful finished result, with the Ombrae surfaces evenly lit for a considered and memorable visual experience.

The [d]arc awards are a celebration of the best in lighting design from around the world. This prestigious recognition utilizes arc and darc magazines’ reputation as the most widely read and respected lighting design publications in the world, with the voting pool exclusively comprised of professional lighting designers.
