Project Location Thessaloniki Greece
Entry DescriptionMonasty Hotel, is the latest hotel in the Marriott Autograph series, and the first international branded 5 star hotel in the centre of Thessaloniki.
The lighting of the interior picks up the same design cues from the architecture and is discreet yet atmospheric, accentuating the materiality of the surfaces and enhancing the atmosphere, always nodding to ecclesiastical references and inspiration. The soft ambience, warm colours and subdued intensity of the light sources create a mysterious, yet comfortable space, full of mystique and captivating details. Circulation lighting tends to reference the ecclesiastical cloisters and shifts as the day progresses to warmer tones, reflecting the time of the day in the mood and atmosphere of the light.
The Guestrooms themselves stand out for their striking architecture, providing subtle yet intricate details that are accented by light. Several lighting layers are utilized to provide the guestrooms with flexibility in use and to match the guest mood.
A great number of unique fixtures were designed for use in the guestrooms and in the public areas to reinforce the ecclesiastical spirit of the design and provide a special decorative touch where required. The exterior of the hotel, was illuminated in a discreet yet striking manner, carefully reinforcing its architectural qualities, whilst presenting a warm, inviting environment.
Sustainability ApproachAll bespoke lighting fixtures were produced by a local workshop in Thessaloniki
Although there was not a requirement to achieve any Leed certification, all rules of energy efficiency both for indoor and outdoor lighting were followed.
