This luxury Restaurant is part of St. Regis Hotel located in Doha. The lighting concept is based on an involving skin that is treated partially in a theatrical manner while allowing for transparencies, screening and filtering of light.
The entrance, the rotunda, is the visual key element of the restaurant. It is treated as a big custom lantern integrating users into the scene which changes throughout the day to adapt to the different daylight conditions. This is enhanced by backlit screens that generate a theatrical atmosphere.
In areas of formal and casual dining, the glitz, richness and brightness are incorporated by chandeliers and recessed mounted accent downlights. Screening, contrast and shadow are the key elements.
