Sofitel is one of the most luxurious 5-star hotels in the Philippines. It has a gorgeous European mixed with Filipino design that exudes elegance and grandeur. Its sophisticated theatrical style in the midst of a tropical setting attracts international and local travelers. They provide impeccable services and products and the lighting system to be installed should be able to uphold to its standards.

The property needed a dimming system in the lobby and lounge that would operate 24/7. After research and analysis, TELCS decided to replace the existing lighting with more energy-efficient luminaires before setting up the dimming system because it would be more cost effective.

Dramatic and intricate lighting design was implemented on the fa├žade to emphasize its 5-star status and to make the hotel even more outstanding. The structure is very well illuminated that it can be seen from a distance. The entrance resembles a Hollywood red carpet setting for businessmen, stars, and VIPs. Directional lights were used on the flower bouquets and other plants in the establishment for accentuation, to create a visual symphony of artistry. Angled beams and well-placed brightness were used to emphasize other details.
