SEA Aquarium (Singapore)
The Gillard Group lit the S.E.A. Aquarium, Resorts World Sentosa the then world’s largest oceanarium, viewing panel and aquarium. S.E.A. contains 43 marine habitats.
Illuminating such a large-scale marine habitat is one of the world’s most complex lighting design undertakings. Failure leads to loss of sea-life and commercial stress.
S.E.A. opened 2012 to global acclaim. On 27 March 2017, S.E.A. celebrated its 10 millionth visitor.
Research, sourcing, testing, modelling and designing took two years. Our use of LED on this scale in this environment was a world first.
