Volvo Cars Bilia - South Yarra, VIC

Multi-award winning engineering consultancy firm Wood and Grieve briefed ELA on the Volvo showroom project and from there, the ELA team worked on several lighting design calculations to ensure we met the design brief.

Eagle Lighting Australia worked with Wood and Grieve Engineers to provide a retail lighting solution for Volvo Cars Bilia South Yarra. The new showroom opened in late 2015, with a complete fit out having taken place. 

Many levels within the showroom needed to achieve 700 lux. It was important for ELA to gain the right contrast as vertical illuminations had to stand out from the street view, allowing the showroom to serve as additional marketing for the Volvo brand. It was also important that the spotlights were equipped with high colour rendering LED’s, ensuring that the cars in the showroom are accurately presented and shown in the best light to the potential buyer.

Fagerhult Marathon LED became the central product of choice, ticking all the boxes in terms of aesthetic design, paint colour and quality finish, CRI, flexibility in orientation and range of beam distributions available. The medium beam distribution was important to include as it provided the punch and contrast the space needed.

Fagerhult Pleiad G3 LED downlights were positioned around reception and general circulation areas, drawing focus to front of house staff and glare-free orientation light as you walk through the showroom doors. This creates a warm and welcoming feel, encouraging the customer to walk through the front doors.

Fagerhult Dome highbay’s were also used in the detailing/wash bays. These provided the high lighting levels required by maintenance staff that meticulously check and maintain vehicles to the highest standards.
