Tasked with outfitting the luxurious J.W. Marriot Bonnet Creek Resort & Spa in Central Florida, H.E. Williams resorted to an eclectic approach of dramatic luminaires and functional integrated lighting.
The general strategy involved using understated lighting in utilitarian areas: the linear recessed lights in this corridor provide a subtle wayfinding cue and an aesthetic counterpoint to the wavy interstellar pattern on the carpet below.
The interstellar theme persists throughout. These overhead slot lights complement the recessed celing feature with its perimeter lighting, while the integrated wall lights provide an eye-catching juxtaposition, evoking lightning and the ephemeral signature of shooting stars.
But the real drama is found in the hotel’s open areas, where H.E. Williams used grand chandeliers with a space-age motif.
Combined with the proximal flush mount circle lights, the chandeliers create the effect of being surrounded by interplanetary phenomena, “mimicking the starry night sky.”
1% dimming was used in the ballrooms, achieving a soothing transition from a brightly lit meeting space to a welcoming hall for weddings, celebrations, and other events.
And all lights were designed for performance and ease of maintenance: Williams’ innovative TrimLock reflector retention system ensures the trim remains flush, and all outdoor lighting is engineered for performance in wet conditions, including those at the outdoor pool bar.
