Hotel de Russie

The restoration of the Hotel De Russie garden’s monumental complex highlight the need to tackle lighting as a complementary design theme with respect to the work on the architecture and the greenery, considering it as an added value to the entire operation. The main objective of the lighting design was to make the complex enjoyable and comprehensible by the user. Great focus was placed on the visual impact of the solutions selected, and the prevention of glaring in the various directions of observation. After the installation and aiming of the devices, the effects of the light were balanced using a management system, thereby allowing the creation of various lighting scenes.
