Hotel Lighting Design
We’re working on a number of hotel lighting projects at the moment, five of which I’m delighted to share below. From luxury interiors to high-quality finishes, it’s all in the detail when it comes to lighting and hospitality…
The Carlton Tower Jumeirah, London
Following extensive refurbishment and renovation works, The Carlton Tower Jumeriah is due to reopen its doors next month. Set in the heart of Knightsbridge, the hotel features 186 rooms and a selection of new signature and junior suites.
Emphasis on creating modern twists to the timeless luxury aesthetic was important in the lighting design scheme. Inspiration was taken from the neighbouring Cadogan Gardens with elements from its imperial beauty influencing the chandeliers and luminaires that hang inside the hotel.
The iconic Sheraton in Bahrain is undergoing a major refurbishment to uplift its public spaces and guest rooms.
Focusing on creating layers of light and cleverly hiding fixtures out of sight, the vertical and horizontal planes and surfaces have been brought to life with a mixture of indirect, functional and decorative light fixtures.
The Westin London City
The Westin London City is a new five star development consisting of 220 guest rooms, 29 suites, a ‘Presidential Suite’ and nine luxury apartments. The premises overlook the River Thames and will connect to the Thames Path on the North Bank of the river.
Integrated indirect illumination has been built into the design of each guest room, with subtle ceiling recessed accent lighting filling in the levels where needed. The lighting scheme has been designed to utilise the elegant decorative luminaires, while a seamless integration of light accentuates the original architecture. The lighting design for the space maximises the views of the river, reinforcing a relaxed and refined atmosphere throughout the hotel.
Rove EXPO, Dubai
Rove EXPO is the only on-site hotel at EXPO Dubai, geared towards the many professionals that will visit.
Decorative and oversized fixtures suspended from the exposed ceilings take precedence in the public spaces. This creates a unique experience that is complemented with small details, such as recessed shelf lights and hidden luminaires, to graze the different screens and features. When brought together, this will form a warm, fresh and trendy ambience.
Raffles CBD, Cairo
The Raffles Hotel will form part of a new Central Business District and will be located inside the ‘Iconic Tower’ in Egypt, which, upon completion, will be the tallest tower in Africa.
The luxury of this hotel is evident in the attention to detail. The high-quality finishes create a sophisticated atmosphere, while the stunning wall features, relief and textures are washed with warm light and blended with delicate decorative fixtures. The ceilings are a key focus, drawing the eye upwards and giving an appreciation of the intricate level of detail.
