Whitegoods Hotel Corte Valier resort, Lake Garda


The Hotel Corte Valier resort on the edge of Italy’s Lake Garda has been given a new lease of life. The lighting brief from the architect Stefano Feriotti was to reflect the quality of the hotel and its location, respect the very clean and sophisticated architectural treatment, and provide overall visual comfort. Lighting designers at Arkilux and the


product design team at Whitegoods Lighting worked together to provide perfect lighting conditions with absolute minimal impact on the architecture. A combination of Whitegoods’ trimless downlights, linear lighting profiles, pendant luminaires, spotlights and concealed cove lighting features have been used to create the scheme. The result is an inspiring, low impact and stimulating visual environment, in keeping with the setting and the lighting brief.

Halogen light is used sparingly but to good effect to provide good colour rendition, highlight and interest. Fluorescent concealed cove features provide low glare comfort and an uplifting space via an energy efficient solution. Whitegoods trimless 60mm round halogen downlights (standard and IP65 versions) were used to good effect in the luxurious bathrooms and many of the communal areas.


The 100mm and 60mm linear plaster in continuous length downlights were used in the bar, lobbies and meeting rooms to provide shadow free continuous illumination, devoid of hot spots and shadows; and in many cases aiding the architecture by delineating the space. All this combined with the benefit of energy efficiency.


Both Edgeless Cove and Light Strip,


overlapping T5 fluorescent cove lighting systems, were used to reinforce the architecture in providing rectangular cove and coffer lighting details, edge lit details in corridors, lobbies and superior rooms.


The hotel claims to be a place to


regenerate body and spirit; the lighting is a key component in this idea and helps to create a relaxing, harmonious environment.
