Located in Bekasi, a fast growing suburb on the eastern border of Jakarta, Harris Hotel, is part of a mixed-use facility in Summarecon Bekasi, a 240 hectare development. The hotel offers 332 rooms and a 3,000 sq-m convention centre with 12 meeting rooms and exhibition spaces.
Upon arrival, visitors will see a grand staircase and a custom-made chandelier in the main entry. Special lighting is created by illuminating a composition of numerous solid cylindrical glass segments. The stair path length provides vistas around the chandelier while traveling between two levels. The stair and the bar was designed as one continuous strip, serving as balustrade above and seamlessly turn as the bar counter at ground level.
Lighting plays an important role in other parts of the hotel. Plenty of ceiling manipulations can be found in this project, including linear constant cove lighting at ceiling level, which serves for navigational purposes such as guiding circulatory flow from the lifts to the lounge, the mall or to the lobby.
ILATAAJ has used a combination of various soft white finishes and a light toned timber laminate to create a fresh look for the brand.
