In a scheme that comprised both existing listed building elements and new build, the role for EQ2 Light was focussed around key interior spaces and the external presentation of the project.
Given the prominent location of the hotel, sympathetic external lighting treatment were introduced into the existing building facades to extend the presence of the Dorsett into the night time scene.
Once in the hotel interior, guest and visitors are greeted by a sequence of interior spaces that alter in terms of volume and finish with the extensive central atrium. Light is used to accentuate this sequence and also to reference the original 1930s Deco origins of the pre-existing cinema building.
