This innovative suspended ceiling is an incredible representation of art in architecture. LMN was the design consultant with prime consultant architects LM and number TEN Architects in joint venture for the 100,000 square foot addition to Winnipeg’s RBC Convention Centre. The 30,000 square foot custom metal ceiling was engineered, fabricated and installed by Eventscape for the main conference room. Made up of 324 identical suspended modules, they joined together to form a geometric pattern which was inspired by ice crystals and floe patterns. With 81 custom fabricated light shrouds incorporated into this system and floor to ceiling windows on the east and west sides, together they provide beautiful views both inside and out.
Each of the individual modules were 15 ft. x 8 ft. with 10” high fins with 1” returns, welded together and powder coated. Together the suspended metal armatures formed an intricate, tessellated monohedral pattern.The custom light shrouds were fabricated to work with the ceiling system. Manufactured in six identical sections and 40” in diameter, these hexagonal light reflectors, were manually bolted together to form a unique suspended light tray and suspended in a grid layout by 3 wire connections.
