The Showroom at Canterbury Leagues Club

The Canterbury Leagues Club is an iconic venue in Sydney’s Western Suburbs that is very popular among locals and visitors. As part of a recent upgrade, the Club has opened a new events space called ‘The Showroom’.

The Showroom is a new space that can accommodate up to 500 guests. It is equipped with a state-of-the-art immersive audio-visual system, a dance floor, and bar facilities. Altis Architecture, who have been working with the Club for over 20 years, were behind the project. The aim was to continue the resort aesthetic through to The Showroom. Lighting designers Haron Robson were brought in to bring the client’s vision to life with detailed lighting.

To highlight and mirror the geometry of the coffered ceiling in The Showroom, it was decided a suspended extrusion would be the best choice. Working with the many stakeholders to find the best solution, lighting partner Jadecross put forward the SK45UD linear system. This system was custom powder-coated and arranged in rectangular formations throughout the space.

A custom 35-degree optic was used within the extrusion alongside integrated track, which houses matching custom powder-coated Luxient Trackspot 90. This adds the ability to achieve more directional illumination, all from the one system.

In addition, the SK45UD was also customized with RGBW uplighting. Therefore, allowing patrons to enjoy a fully immersive and custom lighting experience suited to the particular requirements of each event at The Showroom.

Moreover, Flex 50 Trackspot with oval optics line the perimeter of the space. While the use of Flex 150 Pendants with RGBW, and Flex Adjustable 70 Downlights add a finishing touch to the space while also providing varied illumination for the new and exciting Showroom.
