During the Olympics, Eos designers Douglas Welch and Shaun August met with LIVEDESIGN magazine to talk about the lighting projects they had done around Vancouver. LIVEDESIGN is a magazine focused on the behind-the-scenes work of the entertainment industry. Check out the link below to see the video interview as well as LIVEDESIGN’s blog.

The prestigious Queen Elizabeth Theatre received a royal lighting makeover, courtesy of Eos Lightmedia’s Principal, Douglas Welch. Opened in time for the 2010 Olympics, 1959 built theatre received a full architectural renovation of the interior and exterior spaces. Douglas Welch envisioned a bright and modern lighting look that would be inviting from both inside and outside the theatre. The custom built pendants suspended in the astounding lobby are locally made from natural sea-shells, a nod to both the building’s original luminaires and its coastal location.
On the exterior, the unsightly concrete fly-loft lies no more in a dark shadow but is transformed with colour changing LED lighting fixtures, a wonderful colour complement to the buildings white glow. In the heart of Vancouver, an old gem has been polished off and returned to her former glory. For more pictures visit our flickr page here.

The Eos team has officially won a public art competition for OCT Transpo Articulated Bus Garage in Ottawa, Ontario. As the main staging grounds for the cities buses, the front wall of the bus garage will have LED lighting fixtures embedded into it. Titled “TRANSPOtting” the colourful motion of the LED’s will reflect the buses movement throughout the city. As the amount of buses increases during the busy times of the day, the motion of the lights will playfully reflect this, ultimately dimming down as the buses return to the garage in the evening. The Eos team will design, supply, program, and install this project for the City of Ottawa.

Everyday now you start noticing lighting projects popping up around Vancouver. Last week the Eos team finished installing “The Words don’t fit the Picture,” by Vancouver artist Ron Terada. Adjacent to the iconic Public Library off Robson Street, the LED lit art changes color and draws out pedestrians camera’s in droves. The Eos team worked closely with Ron to construct and implement his design as he envisioned. Check out the link below to vancouverisawesome.com for more pictures.
The buzz is growing! The world’s largest telescope, nick-named the “Thirty Meter Telescope” is in the design process,and Eos Lightmedia has been selected as the Lighting Designer for this amazing project. Working directly with the industrial designers, Dynamic Structures, the Eos team has the unique challenge to light this massive structure. With the sensitivity required to illuminate the working space of the scientists while keeping the light away from the telescope optics, our team has the unique challenge of directing and focusing light to specific areas. Additionally, low heat output from the luminaires is required to regulate the temperature of the space. Our team is excited and proud to be apart of such a prestigious project.
