The Hotel is located at the Northern End of the Esplanade boardwalk where the urban tourist-focussed part of the Esplanade transitions to generous Parklands along the ocean’s edge.

Creating a landmark with lighting

Sequal Consulting Group were approached by the client to provide a colour changing wall washing solution for the exterior of the hotel. The client wanted the hotel to become a landmark hotel that could be recognised globally. The challenge for Sequal was twofold. The first concern was to produce a solution to wash the entire height of the buildings feature facades with the second concern being able to complete the project within a compressed timeframe.

Creating a wall wash effect

Raylinc Lighting provided a digital lighting model to represent the desired wall washing effect using the Ligman Lightalk RGBW linear luminaire. Due to the site restraints the best solution was to install the standard 450mm wall brackets. The minimal visual impact allowed the installation to blend with the building during the daylight hours. To allow the full height of the building to be washed with colour and to restrict the effects of light pollution the fittings are tilted toward the building 2° and optically controlled via a 10° narrow beam optic. The results are spectacular.
