– Completed: 2018
– Products: LED profile, LED strip, lighting control


Terry, a successful businessman with a love for the quirky, had a vision to create a high-end cocktail bar for private events within his very own penthouse apartment. The bar’s design included 428 custom-made ice bricks, crystal glass angular fish, and crystal glass bench tops, all crafted with love by GlassXpressions. The goal was to use lighting to create the illusion that everything was encased in blocks of real ice, but this required a striking and changeable custom lighting solution to accommodate different types of events and create different types of moods.


When electrical contractors OCE Electrical needed to bring Terry’s vision to life, they contacted Lightcore’s founder, Dean Brosnan. Lightcore created a custom lighting plan, arranged all the custom LED lighting products, and even trained Terry on how to use the control system. We used custom-made high-spec RGB+6000K IP67 strip lighting, which gave Terry the ability to create the ultra-icy look he wanted while also enabling limitless color lighting options. In addition, we set it up so Terry could control the lighting of 16 different sections of the bar to create the ultimate icy paradise.


Lightcore conducted numerous on-site visits and answered any questions OCE Electrical had throughout the installation process. We utilized custom-made high-spec LED strip lighting, integrated it into the ice bricks and other design elements, and created a multi-zone system with dynamic color options to give the added WOW factor. The end result was a stunning, custom lighting solution that perfectly showcases Terry’s one-of-a-kind venue.

In conclusion, the custom lighting solution provided by Lightcore for Terry’s futuristic igloo style cocktail bar was a success. Through the use of custom-made high-spec RGB+6000K IP67 strip lighting and a multi-zone system with dynamic color options, Lightcore was able to create an immersive and interactive experience for patrons, while still providing the functionality required for private events. By conducting numerous on-site visits, creating a custom lighting plan, and providing training on the control system, Lightcore ensured that Terry was satisfied with the end result. This project is a great example of how the right lighting design can transform a space into a unique and unforgettable experience. If you’re looking for custom hotel lighting or bar lighting solutions, Lightcore is the perfect partner to help you bring your vision to life.
