Molecular Lighting Design had the rare opportunity to work with Kit Kemp on her inspired and eclectic vision where the main objective is to have a residential feel rather than staying in a hotel. The design owes its success to a true collaboration of the decorative and architectural lighting which leave you the impression of being in a truly unique environment, which is fun, cutting-edge and unpretentious.
Molecular Lighting Design have lit HBA London's fresh interpretation of alpine chic to create a new icon in Gstaad. The scheme complements the use of vernacular materials blended with contemporary interior styles. It uses light to create different atmospheres to suit the diverse seasonal usage of the hotel from a warm and inviting atmosphere in winter to a fresh and invigorating atmosphere in the summer.

Working closely with the interior designer, GA Design, Molecular Lighting Design have created a scheme which compliments their contemporary interpretation of this historic building. The existing high ceilings and architectural features were a challenge to light sympathetically in order to create an ambience that makes guests feel special the moment they arrive. A combination of feature pendants, intimate table lamps, down and up lights and concealed linear lighting create a subtle sense of luxury.
The Lanesborough Hotel re-opened its doors in 2015 following a multi-million-pound refurbishment. Alongside this was the creation of the Lanesborough Club and Spa, which opened in March 2017. The design concept was for it to work as an extension of the more classic British design of the main hotel, combining this with details inspired by The Roman Bath Spa, to create the new luxurious members club and Spa.
The chic and innovative design of the ESPA spa, a space completely without natural light, is reliant on spa lighting to provide the atmosphere and mood to relax instantly the guest and create a pioneering, next-generation spa almost entirely lit with concealed lighting. The selection of fittings, finishes and controls has been carefully considered to create the right mood for all four floors of this impressive and multi-functional spa.
The lighting of this leisure and hotel complex right at the centre of Northampton has established the building's night-time presence and contributed to it being a landmark in the town. A wall wash that gradually changes colour throughout the day provides a dynamic atmosphere once inside.
With the increase in destination shopping malls, competition is high. Having the right shops is only half the attraction; consumers want the overall experience to be one of visual stimulation and luxury. This was the premise behind the refurbishment of Sunset Walk at Centre MK in Milton Keynes. The Hexagon pendants are a bespoke design, developed specifically from mirrored gold stainless steel to bring a sense of quality and high end finish to the centre. The hexagons had to fulfil a number of specific criteria and were developed through a series of mock-ups to ensure they met all goals.
Guy Oliver designed this art deco inspired interior, every element of which is bespoke including a stunning series of architectural details, the magnificent lay lights and light fittings. Working closely with Guy Oliver, Molecular Lighting Design have helped produce the original character of this wonderful new space. LED lighting is layered throughout to make a harmonious balance which changes throughout the day creating a warm and intimate atmosphere in the evening. This restaurant lighting scheme won the prestigious 2015 National Lighting Design Award in the hotel and restaurant category and is shortlisted for the 2015 World Interior News lighting project category.

Axis is both a stand-alone restaurant and the hotel's key destination eating area. Lighting enhances the architectural details and the large mural in this contemporary restaurant.
This unique chalet is a modern twist blending the tradition of timber with modern styling. As it is built from scratch, lighting is fully integrated in each room. Spaces are delineated with concealed lighting to bring out the best in the interior design. Cabinets are floated off walls for a soft lighting effect or mirrors are haloed with light to appear to seamlessly float off the wall.
This Grade II listed family home is sympathetically lit to enhance the natural features of the historic interiors and new addition of the basement pool areas. The unusual architectural interiors and listed status drove the team to find creative solutions to complement the style and provide a fitting ambience. Photos by Fabrice Rambert
This unusual contemporary triplex has a stunning central staircase incorporating a custom-designed chandelier, along with a lower ground floor spa and garden. The lighting throughout is integrated into joinery and architecture to highlight the luxurious finishes and add drama and atmosphere to this high specification apartment.
A clean contemporary mezzanine was created at the top of a very traditional building. Lit from within with LEDs, this semi transparent staircase is like a cool white ice cube. In contrast the shelves provide a warm light not only providing practical light to see the book spines but providing the main light in the room.
Lighting adds a whole new dimension to this beautfully designed mews house crating a sanctuary in the centre of this bustling metropolis. Hallways and landings are made brighter by the lighting of the objects and art, sumptuous tiles are bought to life with light skimming down the back and the height of the vaulted reception room is emphasised by the addition of uplights in the space.
Finding the right lighting effects that would highlight the different materials of this 70 metre yacht was the key for the design. Where possible the lighting was integrated into the interiors and joinery and complemented with downlights to make the artwork and textures stand out. Following this design philosophy along with the programming of preset scenes the result is a balanced and elegant atmospher that makes Joy the winner of the World Superyacht Awards 2017.
Aquila is an 86m superyacht that has recently been refitted under new ownership. We worked closely with Redman Whitley Dixon to turn the designs around within just a few months. Only 4 years old, the use of dark wooden panelling and large halogen downlighters throughout gave a lot of scope to refresh the design. The careful use of materials and the appropriate lighting not only lifted but completely changed the whole feel throughout. Challenged with a refit project, resulted in limiting factors such as existing lighting positions. It was vital for lighting tests and mock-ups to be carried out with different specialist materials. This completely transformed the staircase and glass wall which were once lost in the original design.
Creating an inside/outside feel for a boat is everything as the enjoyment of being on a boat is to experience being on the sea. The yacht lighting designs were created to be read as one place from deck to the interior finishes. This is more apparent at night when lighting is integrated to set the scene. Low output LEDs were used as bulwark lights and integrated into the spreaders to accentuate the mast.
