Commercial outdoor lighting in downtown Naples
Right in the middle of downtown Naples you will find a treasure in the boutique style Trianon Hotel. With the addition of commercial outdoor lighting the Trianon’s exterior architecture and beautifully landscaped grounds are getting the attention they deserve well after the Florida sunset sizzles into the sea at sundown.
Dubbed “Trianon Old Naples”, the owners wanted to highlight the front of the property to improve curb appeal and add to the landscaping. Highlighting the beautiful Palm trees, statues, portico and the Florida charm of the front façade was the key to making that goal a reality. With the added benefit of unique architectural features like the balconies, roofline and the different reliefs along the front, we were able to capture the “Old Naples” splendor with this commercial outdoor lighting design.
Commercial Outdoor Lighting Design
Down lighting on two big oak trees provides the right amount of shadow and light to create a majestic effect on the smaller trees and shrubbery below. The palms, shrubs, and other greenery gain a glow from above that makes for a mysterious affect when uplights and path lights are added nearby. Seeing the depth and beauty in every branch and every leaf at night gives guests at the Trianon a warm and friendly invitation to enjoy the grounds at any time.
With approximately 20 low voltage uplights to highlight all of the beautiful palms and the front façade, we created striking shadows along the front of the boutique hotel. The shadows created from the tall tree canopy, the ornate balcony railings and the palm leaves create a unique majestic Florida feeling with drama and grace from every angle.
As you see in the picture there is a sidewalk running in front of the main entrance. The client wanted more light on the sidewalk. Rather than opting for typical task lighting we elected to install fixtures up in the trees to have the light cascade down. Having four very tall shade trees in the Florida heat is a valuable feature during the day. By using the trees to cast interesting shadows across the sidewalk and property at night we were able to maximize their presence after the sun goes down. The creation of shadows and patches of light results in a very aesthetically pleasing and original nighttime affect.
By converting existing uplights along the front facade to LED we were able to illuminate the Trianon in a whole new light. The addition of outdoor LED lights to the property is a win-win for the owners, as the lights provide brilliant illumination while spending less energy, less running expense, less maintenance and longer warranties than traditional 120 volt.
