New lighting design to the Grade I Listed Victorian Gothic interior architecture. Space Copenhagen has created a beautiful contemporary setting within this iconic venue in the heart of London.
Space Copenhagen was commissioned to design the new bar and lounge in The Hansom Lobby, as part of the current renovation works within the public areas of this beautiful hotel.
The lighting brief included new lighting for the historic interiors, which is one of the most important examples of Victorian Gothic architecture in England.
The space enjoys vast amounts of daylight and as a result, white-tuneable and dim-to-warm technologies were introduced in the various lighting layers (architectural elements as well as decorative).
The new low level furniture lighting included discreet details in the bar counter, mesh screens and local task lighting in the form of table lamps.
At night, the space is beautifully transformed into a warm, welcoming backdrop of subtle accents and highlights onto the Gothic details of the perimeter arched windows and roof structure. At low level, custom floor lamps surrounding the room provide a warm glow to the seating areas, whilst discreetly installed uplighters create drama to the planting and screens scattered throughout the room.
