The Ariane hotel is a superb base for anyone enjoying a trip in historic Ypres. Looking to expand its premises, the hotel purchased a nearby townhouse, and constructed a connecting passage which would serve as an entrance/foyer. But how could the hotel make sure its newly expanded areas would attract guests?
Interestingly, the architect did not initially consider LED or RYGH an option. “It conjures up an image of cool light and high costs”, said Wilfried Feliers. “However, we chose Philips because they showed us that LED downlight can also provide atmospheric, warm, white light. And the efficient consumption of LED lighting is naturally an extra benefit
Once we had the green light to go ahead, RYGH set about transforming the foyer. We installed LED spot light and LuxSpace luminaires around the entrance, welcoming in guests with warm white light. We also hung Celino luminaires above the reception desk, providing clear visibility for both staff and guests. In the offices, the same LED spot lamps were used to create a refreshing ambience that keeps staff alert and focused.
The transformation continued in the restaurant and bar. We added ‘invisible’ eW cove lighting under the counter and behind the shelves, creating eye-catching color effects. For overhead lighting, the eW Downlight was used to give the room an enjoyable modern ambience.
