Just a short stroll from the airport, the Felix hotel is the perfect layover for the weary traveller, sporting an array of inviting spaces complete with a bar, rooftop cinema, conference rooms and control tower views of the planes coming and going on the runways below.
JHA were given the opportunity to work alongside Shamrock Electrical in delivering the power, communications access control and lighting on this landmark hotel brought to realisation by Fox Johnston Architects and Space Control Interior Designers.
JHA were responsible for the design of the key communications infrastructure on the project, providing the building with wireless internet access, television services provided over the network, room access control and management as well as room service features that the modern jetsetter expects from luxury hotel stays.
Great care was taken to highlight the raw nature of construction elements and maintain open, practical spaces throughout the hotel. Through the use of natural wood finishes, exposed ceilings bare concrete columns and large full height windows the space provides an eclectic mix of colours and textures. In order to respect the design intent, careful consideration was made when locating in ceiling services.
The lighting control system provides the flexibility to adjust light levels for higher output task-oriented lighting or alternatively sets the scene with accent lighting that brings to focus the modern artwork covering the walls.
