Jean-Drapeau Park Pavilion

Appearing like a floating fenestration that remains transparent when lit, Fluxwerx View suspended luminaires helped transform this multi-purpose event site located on the legendary and historic site of Montreal’s Expo 67.


Having undergone a complete transformation in 2019, Jean-Drapeau Park was reimagined by architects Lemay landscape work and Éclairage Public’s strategic and beautiful use of Fluxwerx and Lumenpulse luminaires, bringing one of the city’s premier parks into the 21st century.

With the goal to minimize the visual impact of the lighting fixtures in the space, the Fluxwerx View suspended luminaires were selected due to their innovative LED design with no direct or indirect view of the light source when on. To help address multiple layers of public safety concerns, environmental protection, ease of operation, and aesthetic attraction, Éclairage Public design team specified the luminaires in the Catering Pavilion, a high traffic commercial and retail space adjacent to the central outdoor event section. 

Suspended throughout the pavilion from aircraft cables, these understated linear luminaires in anodized aluminum finish offer a seamless juxtaposition with the space’s perimeter glass walls and abundant natural light. Designed to integrate into the built environment, the luminaires blend seamlessly with the architecture, replicating the clean, modern lines of the windows, adding safety and accessibility to the semi-outdoor pavilion and delivering harmonious, seamless lighting throughout the space. Selected 20 up / 80 dn distribution option provided the flexibility to integrate a variety of lighting schemes and deliver a unique architectural experience within the space.
