The old preserved and the new additional building are lit, aiming to boost the facade’s appearance and functionality, the light is intentionally directed from below upwards. The harsh contrast of the entrance hall emphasizes the transition and separates the interior from the exterior. Moving on to the lobby, the visitor experiences a sense of warmth and intimacy that comes from the decorative lighting. The spa area prevails low intensities and warm hues. The transition from the actual hotel to the spa is highlighted by a long corridor with light deriving from a self-lit photograph that follows the runway’s path. The vintage lamps formulating a “chandelier” effect add to the restaurant’s personality.
