Rosewood Hotel, London

Rosewood Hotel, London

Rosewood London has unveiled its latest drinking and dining destination, The Terrace, following a transformation by award winning landscape designer Luciano Giubbilei.

Foundry were briefed by Giubbilei to develop an intimate, discreet, yet dramatic lighting scheme for the space. Their design re-enforces the aspiration to provide a luxurious night-time environment that entices people to use the space after dark, whilst minimising the visual impact of lighting equipment.

The majority of the lighting is subtly integrated into an elegant stainless steel structure. Made from a solid 50x50mm profile and completely pre-fabricated off-site, the cabling routes, fixing details and the physical dimensions of the fittings all had to be precisely detailed before the completed structure was delivered to site for assembly. Foundry worked closely with Benchmark Furniture in the design and development of this structure, particularly on the inclusion of a custom trunking for cable routing. They followed this with the development of special mounting brackets that clip into the trunking. These brackets enable the high level lighting to be attached to the structure, designed to highlight the retractable awning and -once matured- the tree canopy.

Two bespoke fittings were also designed specifically for the project.

The whole scheme is flexibly operated through a Mode lighting control system, which includes a rain sensor hidden at high level to automatically close the canopy when activated.
