The Principal Manchester
Location: Manchester, UK
LDI recently had the opportunity to be part of the design team involved in the relaunch of the Principal Hotel Manchester. Working in collaboration with Michaelis Boyd Architects and 3D Reid the brief was to discreetly add modern architectural lighting to the refurbished grade II listed building to enhance the historical features and provide soft ambient lighting with new decorative chandeliers & wall lights fitted with warm white LED filament lamps. Integrated lighting was also detailed into the new furniture and fixtures bringing a modern aesthetic to the historic interior. The final scheme is a balance of modern architectural lighting and decorative lighting enhancing the original character of the space whilst creating a warm & welcoming atmosphere to the public areas of the hotel.
