Entry Description

The project involves remaking of John Portman’s hotel built in 1987 and bringing the garden into the atrium. Challenges involves introducing layers of light in the atrium space with limited daylight, integrating the new and old along with planting scheme. While grow lights are definitely required to supports the growth of the garden, achieving certain technical requirements of photosynthetic active radiation levels, the general concern of how the exposed grow lights will co-exist with the hotel guests and even complement the ambience for the hotel. Using very controlled optics, high RA9, colour rendering and tunable white solution of the grow lights, we are able to create the atmosphere of being in the forest in the daytime in 3800K, while evening approaches, the lighting ambience transforms into an atmospheric garden at 3100K. The lighting level changes throughout the day, responding to the natural lighting environment and the needs of the greenery and people. together with Richard Lippold’s suspended sculpture, Orchidea, the light show transforms the garden atrium into a new light scape,playing with the geometric shapes and material of sculpture and the atrium's architecture.
