Designed by Arata Isozaki and RHWL Architects, the exterior of the QECCC complex resembles a Sidra tree - the national symbol of Qatar. It is made up of 10 halls, including the 2500-seat Lyric Theatre, the 500-seat Concert Hall and a 4000-capacity banqueting and event facility, in addition to lecture halls, breakout spaces and a multipurpose exhibition hall.
Svetlost Teatar equipped the Lyric Theatre with Robert Juliat D'Artagnan 930 SNX 2.5kW HMI profiles, complete with Jalousie 2 dimming shutters, and two Cyrano 2500W HMI followspots. Twenty-four Solo 744 fluorescent strips were also added for linear effect production lighting. A further 12 Solo units were installed in the Concert Hall along with two Super Korrigan 1200W HMI followspots.
Four more Cyrano followspots were provided for the banqueting and event space to cater for the large scale events such as international boat and motor shows for which the venue was designed.
Finally, additional fluorescent Solo units were deployed building-wide to be used as decorative linear-effect lighting.
Svetlost Teatar's Project Manager, Petar Jankovic, says “We chose Robert Juliat followspots, HMI profiles and Solo fluorescent units because there is no question about the high quality of RJ products. We added RJ Jalousie 2 shutters to the HMI luminaires in the Lyric Theatre as we had used them before in Belgrade musical theatre where we were convinced by their quiet operation, quality and robustness.”
