Mercure Greenwich Hotel, London, UK

  • Location: Royal Greenwich, London, UK
  • Client: Periguin Ltd
  • Service Provided: Lighting Design

The Project

The Mercure London Greenwich Hotel is a 4* hotel located in a former police “section house.” Featuring a classic, 1940s design by McMorran and Whitby Architects, this building was re-opened as a hotel in 2013, and still boasts many of the site’s original features.

The Brief

Melissa Electrical were approached by the hotel's owner to create a unique lighting design that would make the building instantly visible and recognisable. A strong visual "brand" would need to be created, in an attempt to create an iconic local landmark.

Our Solution

Our solution was to create an external lighting display. In tandem with a team of lighting installers, we created a system which lights the building's whole exterior in a range of colours. These colours can then be changed by hotel staff with the hotel's existing dimmer system, negating the need for time-consuming training sessions.

Our design team agreed on the use of the following products:

RGB Interex (acdc lighting)
Cold Cathode (acdc lighting)

Working alongside acdc lighting, our design team delivered exactly what the client was looking for – an eye-catching, iconic exterior lighting design that's sure to turn heads for years to come.
