Pavyllon at the Four Seasons Hotel London at Park LaneHotels / Restaurants & Bars
Michelin star chef Yannick Alléno has brought his modern French Pavyllon restaurant to London’s prestigious Four Seasons Park Lane Hotel. dpa had the pleasure of collaborating with interior designer Chahan Minassian to create a modern and sophisticated lighting scheme for the restaurant, private dining areas, bar and terrace. The tea lounge has additionally been refurbished to match the décor of the restaurant with modernisation of the existing lighting.
dpa’s approach was to bring a subtle and seamless integration of lighting to elevate the dining experience whilst revealing the luxurious fabrics and materials of the beautiful interior design. With the restaurant service running from morning until late into the evening, a combination of precise lighting controls and employment of tuneable white luminaires allowed the perfect scene to be set. A fresh and comfortable breakfast scene balances the natural light of the morning, shifting to a warmer and elegant setting for afternoon tea or lunch and ending with a sophisticated, intimate dinner and drinks scene.
The sumptuous, curved dining counter and theatrical show kitchen is at heart of the restaurant, with intricate and layered lighting details accentuating the hood and counter. Bar Antoine is centred around an elaborate Murano glass chandelier and undulating dark timber walls with stone artworks illuminated from above and below for a dramatic backdrop to the seating area and spiral staircase.
The existing lighting in the tea lounge has been replaced with modern LED luminaires including tuneable white linear LED to the double height feature coffers and coves, which shift to warmer colour temperatures throughout the day and are in keeping with the ambience of the restaurant.
