A new luxury hotel has been commissioned in the Los Angeles area, the hotel has a vintage Hollywood vibe, with a contemporary spin. Guests will include international business and leisure travelers with sophisticated tastes. Your client, the hotel’s owner/operator, wants lighting to play a prominent role in the design development and has engaged you to develop a lighting design concept for the lobby area.
The lobby is a dramatic space. Its façade is comprised entirely of glass, to give all approaching visitors a view of the interior. The resulting daylighting will be a tremendous opportunity, as well as a concern. The lighting for the space should be beautiful and balanced, both day and night. Therefore, lighting should have different scenes for the day and night-time functions.
The architectural design already includes beautiful luminous surfaces on the walls and ceilings. There are lots of architectural coves with opportunities for integrated lighting details. The client has engaged you for your lighting expertise; make sure all lighting details are executed elegantly and aligned with your lighting design vision. In the detailed drawings, the architect has indicated some locations where lighting may be integrated; but has asked that you review their suggestions and details and adapt them, as needed, for your lighting concepts and fixture specifications.
The client has requested a centralized architectural control system for the hotel with automatic time-clock functions and push-button override station for managers.
Some interiors finishes have been selected; they are indicated on the drawings. The interior designer has also developed a color elevation to provide you with guidance on the look and feel of the space. Non-specified information has been left to your discretion.
All assumptions must be justified in the narrative. Major modifications to the architecture and interior design is not allowed.
