At the heart of the 98 acre resort, built on its own jetty, completely immersed in the marina environment, lies the focus of attention; the Event Centre. This elliptical and organically conical glass and metal building is a destination venue and one-of-a-kind architectural marvel in Cyprus, designed for spacious open-air or indoor events. Its eye-catching exterior vertical sunshades create a layered and visually elaborate experience during the day and are transformed into a glowing icon at night.

Cypriot lighting designers Archtube conceived of a dynamic RGBW lighting plot that bring the Event Centre to life, creating scenes and evoking different moods and reactions depending on the use of the Event Centre on a given occasion.

The Event Centre is wrapped by a veil of vertical sun shade fins in 5 levels, each inclined progressively and slightly differently. There are 148 fins on each level. The lighting design intention was to illuminate a pair of fins by placing a single light fixture between them at the base of each level; requiring 740 light fixtures in total.

The fins have an elliptical profile and vary in length between 8.7 and 2.2 metres in height. Individual control of each fixture was required. The intention was to create dynamic lighting programs based on content. The illumination of the fins was to be as homogeneous as possible and light trespass to be reduced as much as the up-lighting concept would allow. A suite of different lighting programs was to be provided in such a way that the client could easily manually select a particular program to suit a specific event, or as a default, an automatic schedule would run the day to day lighting displays. Remote control was required so that illumination Physics could provide support via a broadband connection for maintenance or the uploading of new lighting scenes.
