Anaheim, Ca.

The Westin Anaheim Resort, in the heart of California’s Anaheim Resort district, is a definition of modern design paying homage to Anaheim’s historic orange grove roots. Long Beach, California-based Michael Hong Architects served as the project’s design architect, while HED was the executive architect and Los Angeles-based Cobico, Inc oversaw its interior design.  The lighting design was conceived by Costa Mesa award-winning firm, First Circle Design.

Included among the resort’s 47,000 square feet of flexible event and meeting space are 23 event rooms, 18 breakout rooms, and a ballroom that totals more than 16,000 square feet.

The project features a variety of Targetti and Duralamp interior and exterior products.

Over 3600 linear feet of the flexible linear DURATAPE120V was used to provide a visual line of light around the perimeter of the hotel that highlights the building facade on two key levels. DURATAPE 120V was the ideal solution for this application as the flexible linear light is fully encapsulated and is IP65 rated and suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications. The linear strip allows you to simply, plug and go as no power supply is required! This product is pre-assembled to specific lengths with various connector options and has a direct line voltage connection making it ideal for long run lengths with uninterrupted illumination.

DURAFLEX ARCHITECTURAL Top Flex in 3000K was used to provide toe-kick and cove accent lighting in the luxe cabanas.

Luxe cabanas surround the outdoor swimming pool area and anchor the ground floor along with a 3,600-square-foot fitness center.  The luxury guest area is accented with a variety of exterior lighting including DURAFLEX ARCH TOP FLEX and DURATAPE ES that are both used throughout the cabanas and pool area.

DURATAPE ES is an energy efficient high/mid/low output narrow spaced essential white LED flexible linear strip for continuous consistent color in linear applications.  It is available in both indoor and outdoor options and an ideal and popular solution for cove, under-counter/cabinet, and lighting accent applications. The versatile linear strip light is ideal for under seating illumination due to its compact size and multiple mounting options.

BULLETTO MINI with Tree Strap

A powerful but compact floodlight projector, the BULLETTO MINI and JUPITER ingrade floodlights were used throughout the landscape lighting design. BULLETTO MINI’s were installed with tree straps on palm trees that surround the hotel and outdoor pedestrian egress areas.

BULLETTO Mini can be easily aimed with a 180 degree rotation for precise distribution.

RISE Rooftop Lounge offers informal dining and craft cocktails, as well as frames the views of Disneyland’s nightly fireworks display. BULLETTO MINI was surface mounted with the optional canopy mount accessory to provide the accent illumination on the rooftop bar. The small scale of the fixtures and high center beam candle power allows the high-performing BULLETTO series to light large applications. The 180 degree rotation of the projector allows the luminaire to be directed as needed to provide both pathway and ambient illumination.

JUPITER ingrade floodlights in 3000K were used throughout the landscape lighting design to deliver uplight along the garden area, pool and driveway paths. A combination of both Spot and Flood optics were utilized in the design.

Included among the resort’s 47,000 square feet of flexible event and meeting space are 23 event rooms, 18 breakout rooms, and a ballroom that totals more than 16,000 square feet. Over 5,000 linear feet of DURATAPE ES versatile strip light was used throughout the property in 3000K to beautifully illuminate the coves throughout each ballroom and hallway.

DURATAPE RGBW provides a choice of color options for hallway illumination between the meeting and ballrooms. DURATAPE RGBW was specified due to its full adjustability of color tones, and its ability to change colors for seasons, holidays, and time of day.
