Hotel Aka

Gabellini Sheppard

Miami, FL


Studio Atomic collaborated with Gabellini Sheppard to create the lighting for the Hotel AKA Brickell in Miami.
The lighting concept enhances the natural daylight in the hotel with interior illumination that adds a changing sensory dimension as day turns to night.

Simple, modern lighting complements the distinct textures, patterns and natural palette used throughout the interior to provide a counterpoint to earthy materials, including an airy, luminous restaurant filled with tropical plants. The soft, nuanced lighting establishes a harmonious frame that accentuates the modern character of the hotel, punctuated by panoramic views of the lush nature of Miami.
