Custom Film Ceiling and Model Base at Daniels Cinema Tower Presentation Centre

Custom Film Ceiling and Model base at Daniels Cinema Tower Presentation Centre

Fabrication Highlights:

• Custom acrylic film-style ceiling • Integrated lighting
   

Highlighting the cinematic theme of the new condominium, Great Lakes Scenic Studios custom fabricated a film-styled ceiling. Bending acrylic in a way that actually looked like unspooling film was the key challenge of this build. This is a good example of where having talented staff with an artistic sense is critical to the success of the project. While many people could bend acrylic, to be able to bend it and capture the organic natural of film with its natural ebb and flow is a skill that requires both a deft hand and an artistic eye. It all comes down to great people doing great work. Great Lakes Scenic Studios is proud of our world class team of tradespeople and artists that meet each new build with passion and knowledge.

Custom Ceiling at Daniels One Cole Tower

Close Up of Custom Ceiling for Daniels One Cole Tower Presentation Centre

Fabrication Highlights

* Custom lighting feature • Wood-metal-electrical integration
• Quick installation  

 

It's a story that project managers and design professionals hear all to often. You start with a design feature that seems easy enough and will add significantly to the look of a space, in this case a lighting feature. Oh by the way, it needs to be custom. Oh, and can we make it with both wood and metal and then add in the electrics? Oh, and there is not a lot of time or budget for installation. The list goes on. This is the point where typically the general contractor will throw a huge number at the feature to make it go away. This is also the exact point where Great Lakes Scenic Studios truly shines.
