For this project we designed a lighting scheme that had several different functions
- to illuminate the ceiling with an even coverage in an aesthetically pleasing way
- the ability to dim the lighting to enable focus and help guests move through the hotel
- to provide a functional cleaning lighting level
Then we designed a lower line of light to guide the guest along the corridor. Each door should have been highlighted and would change colour depending on the guest’s arrival, so Mr and Mrs Smith could be told that their room number is 243 and to look for a blue colour door.
Each floor was controlled by a programmed system that could change with time of day and guest movement. It would also sense when movement was detected and would dim down at night and during the day when the corridor was not being used. This would save the owner of the hotel money and energy as the lighting would not be on 24/7.
The hotel decided not to install the complete system and opted for a reduced scheme. The hotel opted to install the ceiling light and changed the break out corridors to standard down lighting. There is only switched control for the installation so the hotel is unable to take advantage of the control systems benefits.
