After 40 years, this Flagship airport hotel received an extensive renovation of the registration, restaurant and lobby areas, and the 16th-floorlounge. The existing building has limited ceiling clearances, antiquated lighting controls, and an electrical system near capacity. There was a lot to overcome, and this operational hotel never closed its doors during renovation.

Working with the hotel brand’s design team, a sleek, modern interior design with rectilinear forms and tightly integrated lighting and mechanical details emerged. We selected square and rectangular fixtures to reinforce this design vocabulary. While we used various LED fixture styles, we chose a standard fixture family for ease of maintenance, and the reduced loads did not require upgrades to the existing electrical service. Architectural, structural, mechanical, food service, and even art elements were carefully coordinated with lighting placement to minimize fixture views and potential glare, ensuring the best fixture placement and integration. Our team performed calculations to verify sufficient task and ambient illumination and contrast ratios in each space.

During construction, the design and construction teams worked together to solve structural, mechanical, and electrical conflicts with the existing structure as we uncovered them. Our designers constantly adjusted lighting layouts and Integration details to accommodate and often improve the lighting design. The 16th-floor lounge features 180-degree views of the airport. We tailored the lighting control system to the area with individually addressable fixtures for granular daylight control. Both time-clock and manual preset operate seamlessly with automatic daylight harvesting from three different exposures. A new, scalable lighting controller manages time-of-day scenes in each area, running lighting sequences for a subtly changing environment. Manual overrides allow for impromptu adjustments in the dining or public spaces. The controller will allow future expansion as the property continues renovation, building towards another 40 years of reliable operation.
