A new civic center was born in Ajax with the opening of Pat Bayly Square. Championing not only the creation of a meaningful community point but also the use of sustainable principles, this landmark project is an example of the forward-thinking urban development transforming cities across Canada. In line with these principles, a considered and environmentally friendly LED lighting design was central to the development, transforming the way the city center is illuminated and experienced.
With new multi-functional spaces, a skating rink, seating areas, artwork, and more, the Pat Bayly Square represents a spectacular new addition to the community, as well as the surrounding architectural landscape.
Working with landscape architects NAK Design Group and electrical engineers Moon Matz, Salex helped bring to life a lighting design that would support the goals of the square’s sustainable design, and provide a setting for community functions, cultural activities and daily amenities year round. Column lighting from Selux, as well as SGI linear grazers and Structura poles with North Star Lighting RGB floods, transforms the downtown core with lighting design, while also creating a strong unified look and enhancing the city experience.
Bringing bright lighting and bustling activity to the beating heart of this urban centre, the Pat Bayly Square is set to become one of the prime destinations for community activity and interaction in the region.
