Project Location Lanzarote, Canary Islands.
Entry DescriptionLocated on the island of Lanzarote, the Arrecife Gran Hotel & Spa has opened after a total reform.
In the lobby, a large pendant luminaire articulates and manages the space.In the reception, a warm tone is the protagonist.
The Pool-Bar was carried out under two lighting strategies that coexist with each other. One: to capture the beautiful sunset and bring it into the space through dynamic Tunable White lighting that changes colour temperature to the rhythm of the sunset. And two: once the sun has gone down the glass dome is transformed into a display of RGB colours, with a final scene of a deep blue sky full of shooting stars that run and flash along the dome.
The entrance to the restaurant from the hotel lobby is concealed behind a panelled metal door that reflects the surrounding space to emphasise the surprise effect of discovering its interior.The lighting strategy is based on the use of indirect linear lights as the project’s narrative discourse. An environment of intimate corners with predominantly 1800K colour temperatures. In this way, light and nature merge into a single concept that amplifies our emotions to achieve the most enjoyable gastronomic pleasure.
