2019 AL Design Awards Winner: The Four Seasons Restaurant
A bronze-clad tunnel punctuated by randomly placed miniature LED point lights connects the dining room and bar. The latter offers a moody ambience, with linear grazers recessed into the floor and concealed by air diffuser grilles, highlighting the hand-blown glass beads along the perimeter glazing. Table lamps illuminate the central sunken bar, supplemented by a linear grazer under the countertop.
The restroom entry corridor is defined by a wooden lattice ceiling with an uplit finished wood ceiling beyond. Perimeter light fixtures concealed within the trellis frame create an unexpected, magical moment.
“Excellent use of integrated lighting and decorative lighting.” —Dave McCarroll, AIA, partner and CFO, KGM Architectural Lighting
