Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
First World Plaza is a renowned entertainment complex in the Genting Highlands, Pahang, Malaysia. Covering over 46,000m2, this popular destination houses an indoor theme park, a snow world, cinema, restaurants, shops and hosts performances such as dances, acrobatic shows and magic acts in its central area known as Time’s Square. This busy venue has become even more popular since the neighboring First World Hotel has opened – ocially the world’s largest with 7,351 rooms, as confirmed by being awarded the Guinness World Record.
OPPLE’s lighting engineers tailored a full lighting scheme that instantly reduced First World Plaza’s lighting electricity consumption by 50%. This delivered better than expected reductions and has been key in accelerating the promotion of sustainability and helping First World Plaza to “go green”. A wide range of OPPLE’s lighting solutions were installed such as the LED Performer T5 Batten, LED Performer T8 Tube, LED Downlight Performer HM and LED Slim Downlight EcoMax II to meet the unique lighting needs of this multi-use entertainment space. OPPLE LED Performer T5 Batten and T8 tube fittings were used as decorative illumination behind carved dark lattices placed in the ceiling of the main aisle from the dining area to the shopping area. Because the T5 Batten can connect with other units with no gap we were able to create a continuous run of lighting with no dark spots, creating a stunning effect highlighting architectural features as well as providing excellent light levels. In the main mall corridors, the OPPLE LED Downlight Performer HM units were fitted as they provide a bright and inviting environment, increasing visitor comfort at any time of the day or night. While in the lead gallery and the auxiliary channel of the plaza such as retail or restaurant areas OPPLE LED Slim Downlight EcoMax II were used, all designed to offer a smooth and natural transition from one lighting scheme to another. Finally, OPPLE’s lighting design team worked to create a stunning laminated lighting effect that adds impact and excitement to the building itself, highlighting and enhancing First Plaza’s brand image as well as improving the customer experience – all whilst reducing energy costs and enhancing First Plaza’s sustainability credentials.
OPPLE’s team delivered more than just great light fittings. They really understood our requirements, made unique suggestions, and have helped us to use lighting to enhance our brand as well asour customers’ experience.
