A Hotel by the sea of Taormina is the backdrop of a particular Hospitality project. Scenery and context are not only inspiration but an extensive constraint to manage during the lighting study. The hotel premises is built inside a renovated convent of the 14th century and this itself set several design challenges to manage.
When lighting is integrated inside such a historical context, the difficulties are significant, both in terms of technology and aesthetics. While illuminating the various Public Spaces, light fittings were inserted into existing architectural features, connected with the existing electrical outlets and required custom designed solutions.
