Studio N has collaborated with architecture and interior design studio Roar to deliver a dramatic lighting scheme.

The immersive spa experience sees a lighting scheme designed to accentuate key architectural focal points and complement Roar's restrained material palette.

Large illuminated arches in the central courtyard form an eye-catching feature, whereas smaller lighting elements in arch-like shelving and decorative light fixtures create a layer of accent illumination that create an atmospheric yet practical environment. Elsewhere, concealed lines of illumination in combination with minimal, low-glare downlights strike a balance between a dramatic, almost theatrical lighting effect with a healing, restorative environment.

This project has been shortlisted in the architectural lighting design category of Dezeen Awards 2022.
