A space for reflection and contemplation.

The passing of a loved one is most certainly one of the most difficult times one can go through. For over 50 years family-run business Pettigrew Funerals has provided loving support and guidance to those who require assistance with funeral arrangements. Through their kind and gentle approach and their state-of-the-art facilities, they are able to manage every aspect of the difficult journey.

The state-of-the-art facility of Pettigrew Funerals Newcastle required a lighting approach that mirrored their soft and kind manner. The interiors of the building are designed with a calming feeling of reflection and contemplation. It was of great importance that the lighting mirror this from the entry through to the chapel,and while providing the necessary illuminance seamlessly integrate into the architecture of the spaces.

The luminaires used for Pettigrews Funerals

Stramac Lighting along with Electrical Projects Australia and Shaddock Architects chose the Aus-system SK66 continuous recessed luminaires to be used throughout the various areas. The long chapel and service rooms featured a custom perforated ceiling whereby the luminaire needed to run along a specific channel to avoid breaking perforations. The system was installed in long lengths and custom rectangular shapes following the architecture of the stepped ceilings, working perfectly with the natural daylight from floor to ceiling windows and upper void windows.
