In 2012, we were approached to design a lighting scheme for a family run hotel in a beautiful rural location. Our aim was to deliver lighting design for a restaurant with accommodation which would be not only energy efficient and functional but also affordable.

Working to a tight budget was a challenge, but by the end of the design process we delivered an energy efficient scheme using LED spotlights for the main restaurant area.

These LED fittings have a neutral finish, are adjustable, and the lamps provide a warm colour temperature, an attribute which is often overlooked in restaurants. 


In the bar area, a strong visual impact was needed. We used the Issa pendant from Intra lighting.

To enhance the unusual layout of the restaurant floor, we used large circular surface mounted fittings Cole from 299 Lighting. A timeless classic, the Cole is a versatile luminaire, floating gracefully and enhancing modern spaces. The dimmable 950 mm fittings were used.  

The next stage of the project will be lighting design and supply for the outdoor area and the neighbouring buildings.
