The Rockwell Hotel, LondonHotels / The External Environment
dpa lighting consultants worked closely with Squire and Partners to produce an appropriate lighting response to this hotel. The impact the property has on Cromwell Road was an important aspect of the scheme ensuring the building informed passers by that the hotel inside was interesting, unique and stylish. Working closely with the graphics the lighting exposed the natural elements of the architecture in a classic manor. The light fixtures themselves are as discreet as possible allowing the building in its lit form to send out the message at night as well as during the day.
The terrace garden is an exciting and interesting space carefully illuminated at night to produce an appropriate atmosphere to relax in. The lighting floated the bridges over the water, emphasised the oversized planters and grazed light around the perimeter timber treatment.
