Spicers Guesthouse,
Hunter Valley NSW

Spicers Guesthouse is a luxury retreat situated amidst the wineries of the Hunter Valley, with exceptional views of the rolling mountain ranges.

The newly renovated guesthouse weaves contemporary detailing with the heritage fabric and country spirit of the original buildings.

JHA’s Specialist Lighting team partnered with Spicers, Cottee Parker and Turner & Townsend Thinc to deliver illuminated spaces which are sensitive to the surrounds, and which resonate with an elegance synonymous with the Spicers brand.

An important aspect of the design strategy was our focus on the ‘arrival experience’ – ensuring that guests’ are welcomed from the property boundary at the beginning of the driveway, through the carpark and exterior grounds and into the warmth of the interiors, via soft lighting integrated within the landscape.  The view of the stars in the Hunter region is phenomenal, so controlling unwanted light spill was an integral principle of the lighting strategy.
