Our lighting concept strives to incorporate the Aman philosophy of integrating individuality, locale, culture and environment into their resorts. For us this means maximizing daylight potential, and a high comfort, quality indirect lighting scheme. Through daylight techniques and strategies we create a strong connection between the interior and outside landscape. Combined with contemporary style, subtle indirect lighting strives to capture the magical spirit of Sri Lanka. Accent lighting enhances the both the functional and ambient atmosphere in the room. Incorporation of traditional Sri Lankan lighting elements underlines Aman Resort’s attitude, and creates romance.
Color Temperature Map:
Since Sri Lanka is a warm climatecolor temperature of light playsan important role. The entrance areas and the bathroom would be areas with more refreshing light.The room would get gradually warmer with the warmest point being the balcony, creating anambiance of romance in the evenings.
•Welcoming•Arrival•Good first impression•Convenient•Feeling of security•Transition space from corridor•Storage•Dressing area•Looking good•Mirrors•Colour differentiation
Utilizing a suspended ceiling over the entry way, cool indirect lighting refreshes the guest as he or she enters the room. A back lit mirror and indirect lighting inside the storage areas aid the guests as they prepare for the day or their night out.
•Relaxation and respite•Getting away from it all•Another world•Luxurious/better than home•High function/ make up, shaving •Two options, function/ atmosphere•Connection to nature•Colour differentiation
Dimmable halogen side emitting fiber optic cove lighting along the side of the tub allows the guest to adjust ambient glow while bathing. A high color temperature, good color rendering fluorescent back lit mirror and an art object along the sink wall provide the perfect light for applying make up. To the left and the right of the bed are two tall windows looking into the bathroom. A louver system allows the guest direct the sunlight in the bathroom, enjoy the view to the outside from the deck while freshening up, as well as close them when privacy is needed. Finally a halogen down light in shower adds a bit of sparkle and brilliance.
•Relaxation•Romance•Reading ability•High comfort/ softness•Glare control
Cool color temperature cove lighting in the ceiling creates a soft light ceiling, providing general illumination to the room. A warm cozy glow coming under the bed provides a night light as well as a romantic surprise in the room. Bedside lamps give warm diffused light for night time reading.
• Relaxation• Conversation• Reading/playing games• Feels like home• A place to put your feet up• Tea and cookies• Entertaining guests
A simple glowing orb like pendant over the lounge area, reminds guests of the sunset and creates the perfect atmosphere for putting your feet up, or sharing drinks with friends.
• Tasks• Technology• Writing• High Comfort• Focus on working plane• Concentration• No distractions• Daylight
For working light a small brushed metal desk lamp blends well with the rooms décor and spills a pool of light on to the surface for working. A dim back lit art object on the wall does not provide functional light, but instead adds a sense of balance to the room.
• Relaxation• Romance• Outdoors• Peaceful
A diffused material is placed underneath the boards of the deck, with a fiber optic system providing light to the diffuser. This creates a soft light coming from between the floor boards of the balcony. Placed in niche on the central wall is a traditional Sri Lankan prayer lamp. The view to the sea is not disrupted and one can enjoy beautiful evenings outside.
