The Grand lobby of 569 Great Northern Way, featuring the 16-foot monumental video wall.
An overview of the lobby space and the predictable traffic patterns that would inform the location of the various sensors placed around the lobby, picking up on the movement of lobby guests.
At the stage of framing and cabling rough-in, the installation space is about to have the screen mounting system installed.
We generally design and fabricate custom vent grilles for our video walls to ensure adequate air circulation, and to optimize the positioning of the screens relative to the surrounding sight lines. These grilles are ready for powder-coating.
At the end of screen and sensor installation, our team began testing the infrared motion sensors and sonar proximity sensors using a simple program that represented their feedback with simple blocks and numerical values described on the screens.

The composite image that the interactive installation features. The star scape, rotates in the background, stars shoot across the night sky, the colour f the twilight changes with the hour of the day, and a swarm of fireflies dances around the camping scene in the lower foreground.
The grand lobby in all its glory, with cedar ceiling, stone tile floor, back-painted glass walls, and a gorgeous copper shrouding over the front entranceway.
