The ‘Building of the Year’ award ceremony was held on 14 December. This prestigious event was first held in Bulgaria in 2002 to recognise the best architecture and construction projects in the country. The Paradise Blue Hotel won the Hotels and Holiday Resorts category, with lighting provided by LEDS-C4.
The hotel, which first opened in August 1969, has been fully renovated and modernised. The main goals when designing the new complex were to preserve the characteristic silhouette of the old adjoined buildings, the maximum number of guestrooms with a sea view and the white exterior of the hotel as a traditional feature of the region. The design of the façades is totally white, and the range of sizes and designs used for the façade panels and decorative elements recreate the spray, movement and effect of the sea.
Together with our collaborator Prisma.bg, LEDS-C4 created the overall lighting for the hotel complex, combining decorative and technical elements from the company’s various brands, such as the Tulip pendant lamp and the Grok wall lamp, the Ping standing lamp from the Decorative line and the Smooth standing lamp from the Outdoor line. Furthermore, LEDS-C4 produced around 50 items adapted to the specific needs of the different hotel spaces.
