Winner in Hotel and Restaurants Lighting
Media City, Dubai, UAE
The brief for the lighting was to reinforce the architecture and interior design of a five star property and to complement and enhance how the spaces looked and felt through the day, evening and night.
In a crowded market within the region the lighting was to elevate the design and stand out the project within the hospitality sector.
The lighting scheme delivers on each aspect of the brief, from a dynamic façade lighting scheme that stands out the architecture in a competitive location, to the automated lighting scenes that run through the interior public spaces, each considerate of the space they illuminate. The restaurants have lighting scenes to complement meal times throughout the day, lobby spaces reveal uplit screens that graze texture and materiality, lift lobbies softly glow through backlit light boxes with inlaid metalwork, and the rooftop bar comes to life in the evening through edge lit artworks, sparkling glass displays, and internally glowing onyx counters.
With considered design from the outset we were able to surpass the client expectations and deliver the lighting scheme on budget and exceeding many of the requirements of the brief.
