Holophane Provides a Warm Welcome for Hotel Guests
A combination of Holophane luminaries have been used to highlight and complement the traditional surroundings of The Stanley House Hotel in Mellor, Lancashire.
Stanley House is a 17th Century manor house set in 54 acres of stunning parkland in the Ribble Valley countryside, an area known for its rolling hills and stark escarpments. The hotel has recently undergone extensive restoration and is regarded by many as one of the finest country house hotels in England.
Holophane luminaires were chosen to illuminate the main hotel building, surrounding gardens and the adjoining barn conversions which accommodate the function suites, meeting rooms and Cassis restaurant. Lighting had to adhere to strict council regulations and blend in with the overall image whilst meeting Dark Sky regulations within the green belt area.
Arese, a decorative contemporary, indirect amenity luminaire from Holophane was installed throughout the walkways along with Denver Pole an attractive, high performance, low wattage pole mounted luminaire for striking landscape illumination.
Holophane’s popular Hydrel in-ground floodlights were also utilised throughout the grounds to provide accent floodlit lighting – this luminaire is a favourite amongst architects and lighting designers because it emphasises the subject of illumination without the distraction of a visible fixture.
LEDs were chosen for planters throughout the grounds, as their low lens temperature makes them ideal for public areas where there is the possibility of people touching them.
The overall effect of the illumination provided by Holophane is a visually stunning nightscape that complements the hotels attractive Lancashire stone architecture.
