In 2019, the Brisbane City Council launched the City of Lights Creative Lighting Scheme, aimed at activating the city, bringing people together, and strengthening the night-time economy. Lightcore, a leading lighting solutions company with a passion for reviving building facades, saw an opportunity to use their skills to help activate inner city buildings.
Lightcore’s attention was drawn to 609-611 Stanley Street, a heritage shop building built in 1903, housing the Woolloongabba Art Gallery and French bistro C’est Bon and Le Bon Bar. The challenge was to create a sensitive while also dynamic lighting installation that would highlight the building’s heritage architecture and also boost the night-time economy of the building and surrounding areas. Together with the project from beginning to end, navigating government and heritage regulations, securing funding, and ensuring minimal impact on the business and surrounding areas during installation.
We love this heritage building and when Deane approached us with the idea of installing creative lighting to show it off to passers by we were delighted. The end result is stunning. Well done Deane and the Brisbane City Council

Lightcore came up with a unique idea of installing the lighting from the top down, abseiling down the side of the building to avoid obstructing the walkway and impacting traffic. Special resins were used to attach the lighting to the building, preventing drilling into the existing structure, and making it easily removable if required. Heavy-duty cabling and high-spec IP67 silicon flex lighting source were used to withstand the harsh Australian climate. Lightcore undertook rigorous on-site testing, secured multiple permits, and used extensive visual design materials to visualize the predicted results.
The project was completed over a period of just five days, well within the project timeline of 12 months. The finished product was met with enthusiastic approval from all parties, including the building owners and Brisbane City Council officials. The dynamic lighting display not only highlighted the building’s existing architecture but also attracted more business, making a measurable impact on the night-time economy of the building and surrounding areas.
