Mercure Riga Centre, Latvia

Mercure Hotel in the centre of Riga has recently opened. The striking building has a modern, sleek façade, yet with multiple classical design elements, as an homage to the original art nouveau style of the building dating from 1901.

To further enhance the visual appearance of the building, CLS was selected to supply the exterior lighting, because of its broad experience with similar projects worldwide. The assignment was to create an eye catcher, without disturbing any guests in their hotel rooms.

By using the HYLO with narrow beams of only 12° and a warm white colour temperature (3000K), the vertical shapes of the building are accentuated, while the light remains between the hotel room windows. REVO Compacts on the higher floors complement this effect. By using HYLO fixtures with amber as a contrasting colour on the ground floor, the height of the building is further enhanced, while a clear distinction is made between hotel rooms and public areas.
