There has been a shift towards whole fixture solutions that utilize energy efficient LED technology to bring about important cost and energy savings in the hospitality industry. Designers and architects are testing new solutions and possibilities that can take the adventure of decorative lighting to another level far beyond the foreseeable or ordinary. Present inclinations in the lighting field are oriented towards progressively comfortable solutions that conform to the aesthetic and functional needs of the customer with contemporary and timeless design.”
LWS Lighting Solutions (LED WORLD’s project Department) Project in-charge Mr.Shanil Basheer comments “We were approached by the Hotel’s Project Department head to entirely plan the basic design for their external facade lighting as well as illuminating the backyard coffee shop. Our lighting designers, engineers, closely worked with Harrison Consultants to lay down each archaic detail for rendering a gleaming display for the hotel during the nights. We supplied an array of products from neon flex lights with RGB controllers, Façade linear wall washers, spike lights, in-ground lights and double asymmetric washers, LED digital screen, LED festoon bulbs, outdoor spot lights and down lights. We mounted LED Strips with opal diffuser along the facade projection at bottom and top columns to create a halo effect. Linear LEDs were floor mounted against the wall uplighting the internal space visible through the plant room louvers. Strip lights were laid underside of the soffit above the terrace area for a floating effect. We installed Spikes LED uplights to illuminate the flags at the entrance, in-ground LED lights to illuminate the main car entrance. The backyard café was illuminated with festoon white cable lights with golf bulb lamps hung loosely from the pergola structure. Trees were draped with Fairy light wraps and spike uplights, LED downlighters were installed for column planting and planter illumination. The cafeteria walls were embellished with black wall mounted spot lights while the edges were laced with color changing RGB Led strip lights that are adjustable.”
With all the meticulous picked light fittings and designs, the hotel stands dazzled with a spectrum of lights creating a deluxe convivial view, perfectly standing out from the dark skies at night. General Manager Valentin Boyanov mentions “The brand new Steigenberger Hotel is assured of benefits of LED high-performing, state-of-the-art luminaires. The new lighting scheme transforms the façade and backyard into a brightly-lit and warm welcoming space, now operating at half the energy costs of traditional fluorescent lighting. The Hotel will operate in an efficient and eco-friendly way, enhancing the travelers stay experience and working environment for staff whilst boasting a bright and attractive lighting for a spectacular view.”
