About the project

The lighting design of the speakeasy at the Stanton Hotel in El Paso, Texas, demonstrates a sophisticated application of human-centric lighting principles.

The approach employs a layered lighting scheme that combines ambient, accent, and task lighting to create a versatile and inviting atmosphere. Ambient lighting is achieved through strategically placed recessed downlights that provide a soft, uniform light, reducing harsh shadows and creating a warm, welcoming environment. Accent lighting is used to highlight art and architectural features, contributing depth and drawing attention to specific elements within the space.

The use of tunable white fixtures is a key feature of the lighting strategy, offering flexibility in color temperature to evoke different moods and complement natural circadian rhythms. This adaptability is crucial for a space designed for private events, allowing for customization according to the event's theme or desired ambiance. Indirect lighting, such as cove lighting, adds a glow to the space, enhancing the comfort of the visual experience and avoiding glare. This is particularly effective in a speakeasy setting, where a relaxed atmosphere is paramount.
