Corinthia Hotel

Location:  London

Our design intent for the exterior lighting of  the Corinthia Hotel was predominantly to enhance the building's architectural features by night, whilst improving the general ambience of surrounding streets and defining the hotel's identity.  The building’s beautiful original Victorian architecture was emphasised to express the scale by bookending the building with more illumination to the vertical "turrets". These corner features and surrounding entrances are given a higher level of lighting to express the building’s architectural form, and highlight the building’s extremities framing the more subtle window architrave uplighting in between.  Wattages were appropriately selected in relation to each other and the streets' ambient lighting.
