Mega-Mansion Renews Paintscaping 3D Projection

Share Article

Projection mapping quickly becoming must-have for giant estates.


Mansion owners are now turning more and more to 3D mapping to bring the spotlight on their property. Nothing is too extravagant.

Once reserved for high-end events and concerts, 3D projection mapping is quickly becoming the da facto lighting technique for high-end mansions. And LA-based mapping designer Philippe Bergeron is riding the wave.

Bergeron and his firm Paintscaping will present “LightNights”, the story of the co-founder of Goodyear Tire, FA Seiberling, for the second year in a row at Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens, a mega-mansion of 64,000 sq ft, in Akron, Ohio.

The guests will embark on a journey thru magic and drama. From the building of the house, to its opening day on Christmas, to Seiberling getting fired from Goodyear.

For those not familiar with 3D mapping, it is the art of projecting images on buildings and landscape, in alignment with the architectural features. A merging of real and virtual, if you will.

“Mansion owners are now turning more and more to 3D mapping to bring the spotlight on their property,” notes Bergeron, President of PaintScaping, “nothing is too extravagant.”

Case in point. PaintScaping has mapped maybe the most famous – or infamous? – estate in the world. The Playboy Mansion. “We mapped a number of different locations on the property, including the tunnel that leads to the legendary grotto,” continues Bergeron.

But PaintScaping’s work is not limited to estates. Their work in the music video “This is what you came for,” by Calvin Harris featuring Rihanna, gathered over 2 billion views on YouTube, making it the most viewed mapping ever.

And Bergeron’s company has mapped a number of high-end hotels and resorts. The Ritz-Carlton Kapalua in Hawaii, The Westin Kierland in Scottsdale, The Madeline in Telluride, the Terranea Resort in LA, and The Venetian in Las Vegas, to name a few. Especially during the holidays.

“3D mapping is the perfect tool to tell old stories in a new way and make people believe in magic again,” concludes Bergeron with a smile.
