exploring with light

the hotel sankara

This luxurious 5-star hotel is located in the Westlands suburb of Nairobi – a major upcoming commercial and economic zone.

In common with the modern generation of urban hotels, the lighting concept for the Sankara seeks to highlight the local interior design influence within the context of an overall contemporary lighting scheme. The lighting design fulfils international technical and visual standards, whilst delivering a strong focus on the local artefacts and works of art which, showcased throughout the hotel, emphasise the property's connection with its cultural roots.

Emphasis is also laid on 'feel-good' lighting and the guest rooms at the Sankara exemplify this. The necessary amount of the appropriate kind of light in the right locations in the room provide an attractive and warming glow to make it your home away from home.
