State Drill Core Reference Library, Adelaide

The South Australian Drill Core Reference Library stores geological samples recovered from over 120 years of mining for minerals and energy resources hidden beneath the surface of South Australia. The extensive external façade is constructed from rusted steel and preformed concrete panels. The VarioLED™ Flex SKYLLA SV IP67 in 3,300 K was inserted behind selected concrete panels to illuminate the area around the concrete, both at the high level and ground level. The façade is thus animated and the contrast between steel and concrete is excitingly staged.
