Lighting is a reflection of luxury. It combines the Universal, the functional, and the aesthetic in a phenomenon that is both a science and an art. Resort lighting represents the highest level of sophistication found in the lighting design services industry, representing a synthesis of multiple disciplines applied in such a fashion as to separate and elevate the experience of a luxury resort to the level of the timeless and the impeccable.
Commercial resort landscape lighting is rapidly rising in demand and popularity as management teams realize the need to showcase the entirety of a property as a single point of differentiation from the world of daily life. Light is an absolutely essential component to resort design, being essential to clear visibility of the grounds at twilight and nighttime hours.
It bears noting at this point that truly superior resort and hotel lighting must address interior facilities with equal attention to detail and finesse as that paid to the external layout of the grounds themselves. Without this, the uniqueness of the experience will diminish when guests enter the building.
Every element of the resort must therefore be addressed as a unique, individual component of an interconnected whole. The restaurant is set apart for romance, conversation, and sublime escape from the mediocrities of ordinary life. The banquet hall is both decorated and illuminated with lighting themes that invite to celebration. Layered landscape and architectural lighting arrays emphasize the multi-dimensional elements of natural beauty blended with the finest human engineering and design. Pathways, outdoor dining areas, boardrooms, tennis courts, and even parking lots are both lit for safety and decorum, contributing like strands in a web of light to the exclusive world that resort lighting creates.
Illuminations Lighting and Design foresaw many years ago that the current explosion in resort and hotel landscape lighting would one day sweep the nation. As an eclectic firm focused on bringing custom solutions through multi-disciplinary blends of various lighting design methodologies, we positioned ourselves to rise to the forefront of the resort hotel and high-end lighting market when the time came to do so. To prepare ourselves, we formed a network of strategic alliances with some of the worlds leading architectural, landscape, and lighting fixture-manufacturing firms.
This network of strategic partnerships has enabled us to cross-train our professional teams in domains normally not directly addressed by standard lighting companies. This overlap of skill set has also enabled us to customize methodologies specifically created for hotel, hospitality, country club and resort lighting arenas. These proprietary strategies are applied onsite after extensive client consultation and feedback and subsequently implemented in a manner that unites functionality and aesthetics.
The end result of a resort lighting design by Illuminations Lighting Design will create harmony and congruence between natural, architectural, decorative, and activity themes in every single element of the facilities indoor and outdoor points of interest.
The key to creating this lighting-as-experience phenomenon lies in a wider selection of top-grade, commercial equipment that enable us to create more levels of light than competing firms deliver. Many landscapers, for example, blend only two levels of light to illuminate trees and pathways. We blend four layers of light to emphasize trees, vegetations break points, fountains, lakes, decorative fixtures and statuaries, and pathways and outdoor dining areas.
We also ensure clear visibility through indoor windows into greenways and atriums on the other side of the glass. Again, layered lighting and superior knowledge of architectural angles of incidence are required to accomplish this delicate balance without generating excess glare that can distort the view.
A few examples follow to illustrate the precision and level of detail that Illuminations Lighting brings to the world of resort luxury and entertainment.
Outdoor Landscape Lighting Design:
We begin by studying both the landscape and the architecture of the facility to determine common angles of incident between man-made designs and natural formations. This allows us to subsequently unite buildings with landscapes in a manner that results in a more aesthetic presentation of the entire property.
Interior Lighting Design & Consulatation:
We examine critical elements of building interiors, special facilities, dining areas, and meeting rooms. Such factors as interior architecture, existing decorative themes, and decorative fine art play a large contributive role to our development of interior resort lighting design. We combine our expertise with information gathered from a series of client consultations and testimonials that inform us of the activities most commonly occurring in different areas of the building. We can then accommodate functional, practical demands with this knowledge without losing sight of superior atmosphere and creative appeal.
As in the case of outdoor lighting, multiple layers of indirect and direct lighting are used to treat each room as its own unique realm of experience deserving of an individual touch.
Fine Art Lighting & Lighting Control Systems:
Perhaps one of the greatest benefits we can offer exclusive retreats and a resort is an in-depth knowledge of fine art decorative lighting and advanced lighting controls. Our impeccable reputation in the home automation industry transfers well to large commercial arenas where a wide variety of sophisticated controls will enhance ultra luxury with the convenience of one-touch, ultra-modern lighting level and power control.
Our access to many of the world’s most sophisticated art and display lighting fixtures also allows us to create specialty lighting effects around paintings and statuary and to also enhance ornamental and functional displays throughout the facility.
Every resort lighting theme is unique and custom to the particular location and nature of both property and corporate brand. Illuminations will take as much time as necessary to patiently and systematically develop a architectural lighting system that is supportive of luxury and celebratory of the finest moments in life.
