An entirely new light and lighting concept
for our hotel, incl. the tower.
CLEANING UP THE LIGHTS
The Hubertushof hotel is located in the heart of an impressive natural landscape. The space is framed by mountains, the sky and the valley and has its own particular spatial presence at night as well. These days, it is customary for Alpine villages popular among tourists to decorate their spaces with lights.
This is why, on the basis of “Slow Light” criteria and in agreement with the hotel’s operators, Siegrun Apelt has decided to “Clean up the lights”. These points of light impact the naturally created nocturnal spaces. They cut through and enclose them, robbing them of their power. In addition, artificial lights obstruct our view of the starry skies and the wide valley expanses.
This means modifying or deinstalling unfavourably placed or unnecessary lighting. Subsequently, the newly created unit of nocturnal space will be completed by adding a subtle lighting concept for the ski-lift tower.
