The Address Marassi Golf Resort is situated within the larger Marassi development in the north of Egypt, overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. The resort has been designed in a Tuscan style with low-rise edifices housing almost 50 rooms. Nulty worked closely with the interior designer to produce a luxurious environment that envelops every guest. The lighting scheme celebrates the architecture of the space, whilst highlighting the grandeur of its features.
Stepping into the welcoming resort after a round of golf, whether to enjoy a refreshment or checking in to a suite, guests are greeted with warming hues of golden light which glow from hidden cove lighting in the ceiling of the lobby area. This illumination highlights the height of the ceiling and the cottage-style architecture, whilst also creating flare and drama. Situated above the check-in desk are top mounted downlights that create pools of functional lighting on the surface below. Wall washers highlight the golden coloured cupboards, framing the reception area.
The cigar seating lounge, which is cosily nestled to one side of the lobby, boasts a mellow colour temperature with balanced illumination, creating a relaxing atmosphere. Bold pendants are suspended throughout the bar and dining spaces, whilst individual picture lights illuminate various paintings and artwork that is peppered around the interior space. Undercounter lighting and screen lighting help to illuminate the bar area, whilst joinery lighting in the alcoves with integrated linear lights and small downlights, highlight glassware and trinkets.
Outside, a relaxation area overlooking the pool encourages conversation and a communal atmosphere. Luminaires are in place on each column, firing light upwards and downwards to highlight the colonnade and the underside of the canopy, creating a focal point to captivate each guest. A combination of wall washers on the coves and top of the Roman columns on the façade, creates a beguiling vision as guests sit back and take in the view of the resort.
