Case study: The Crowne Plaza Hotel, Liège
The Crowne Plaza Liège stands out because it is made up of three individual buildings. Two are historic buildings that have been converted into a luxury hotel with 32 VIP suites of more than 50m² from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. The third is a new construction, which boasts 126 guestrooms, each more than 30m² in size.
LEDS-C4 was responsible for lighting up these spaces by bringing together design, quality, functionality and energy efficiency. The lighting was carefully selected for the two historic buildings by Belgian designer Eric Goffin, who used his experience as an antiques dealer to bring the latest LED technology into line with the historic elements of the suites, choosing lighting from the Grok and Architectural LEDS-C4 lines.
For the new construction, a new solution was designed for these guestrooms, which was developed and manufactured by LEDS-C4. The bespoke headboard lights consist of ambient lighting (with energy-saving lamp), and an integrated reading lamp (with LED technology), which complement the designer desk lamp and the pendant light. The fabrics of the lampshades were also customised to complement the fitted carpet and wall coverings.
The ballroom was converted into a multifunctional events room. Here, the original bronze chandeliers have been restored and LEDS-C4 produced bespoke pendant lights which combine metal halide lamps with crystal trims.
LEDS-C4's in-house lighting projects department carried out lighting calculations and proposed sustainable solutions for all the spaces in the hotel. The company carried out 3D renderings and simulations until they achieved the effects that the designer and owner of the hotel were aiming for. The use of LED technology was the guideline which was followed in the corridors. Downlights from the architectural range were installed along with 2,700ºK LED to achieve a warm atmosphere.
Lighting fixtures from the outdoor range were chosen for the 700m² of gardens and the tower, thus creating a spectacular lighting effect in the historic complex.
The spa and wellness areas had to be functional, so lighting from the architectural and outdoor lines was installed. This combined energy-saving lamps and LED.
LEDS-C4 believes in light, and applies its knowledge in the development of each luminaire, of each lighting project, with the aim of achieving the desired singularity in the area(s) that need lighting.
