Mercure Hotel Hida Takayama


ModuleX® lighting was selected for the Mercure Hotel in Takayama,
Gifu Prefecture.

Blessed with pristine nature, rich traditions, and a fantastic location close to numerous natural jewels, Hida Takayama skillfully blends nostalgia and modernity. Mercure Hida Takayama is a new gateway to the captivating city and a place to reconnect with traditional-yet-contemporary Japan.

For the hotel's main areas, including the entrance, reception, and restaurants, where many decorative lighting fixtures (such as pendant lights and bracket lights) are placed, we created a lighting plan that focused on how to hide the presence of functional lighting fixtures while still making them work effectively.

We installed the optimum number of glare-controlled functional lighting fixtures with minimum size so that the illumination is not blocked by decorative lighting fixtures. It is very difficult to secure enough illumination on desk surfaces and lines of traffic only with decorative lighting fixtures, but by using our Filter Lighting Design technology, we managed to realize a space that looks as if it were planned only with decorative lighting fixtures.

Furthermore, as hotels are a place where guests stay for prolonged amounts of time, we used our original ModuleX® Controls lighting environment control technology and Time Sequence Design® lighting design method. They provide an environment that can change the balance of brightness and illumination within the viewing angle according to guests' activities during various time periods from check-in to check-out.
