The Edition Hotel in West Hollywood, California is one of four unique luxury boutique locations in the United States. The design team’s focus for this west coast hotel was to create not only an unassuming yet breathtaking structure but also a memorable visitor experience. As guests approach the main entry doors, they begin to feel the bass from upbeat music pulsating from the building’s main lobby as they are met with the smell of jasmine as it pushes its way through the building’s HVAC system. Within the main lobby, decorative luminaires with strategically placed dimmable recessed ceiling downlights and adjustable ellipsoidal fixtures that help provide a warm, enchanting atmosphere.
As the engineer of record, WSP provided the developers with professional services for the project, including mechanical-electrical-plumbing (MEP) systems, fire protection, architectural lighting and commissioning services. For WSP USA’s lighting design team, it was no small undertaking to carefully coordinate the project’s 75+ individual luminaire mounting details with a design team that spanned the globe from California to London. Attention to detail can be found in every view throughout the roughly 300,000 square feet property, which includes 247 guest rooms, 20 high-end luxury condominiums, a Michelin- starred restaurant, gymnasium, spa, night club, ballroom and two roof top pool decks.
Our team’s lighting concepts reinforced the architect’s ultra-minimalist design aesthetic by leveraging color temperatures, lighting textures and carefully placed dimmable LED ingrade uplights throughout each space in the hotel.
