About the project

Located one hour form Paris, the Trianon Palace & Spa, a Westin Hotel, is situated in the heart of Versailles sitting on the edge of the Royal domain of Versailles. As part of the refurbishment and modernization to the 199 room hotel NDYLIGHT was engaged to provide specialist lighting design for the public front of house areas in the main hotel building.

Working closely with the interior designers NDYLIGHT developed the lighting concepts for the hotel entrance, reception, the gallery, Gordon Ramsay’s first restaurant in France, a ball room and the meeting spaces.

The challenges of the project included working to a compressed a programme ensuring the hotel was closed for the shortest time possible and working and responding to the design variations that arise when refurbishing an existing structure.
