Lighting Design Project by Elektra Lighting

Graduate Hotel Oxford

Located within the city’s cultural epicentre, The Randolph Hotel by Graduate Hotels takes inspiration from the University of Oxford’s history, paying homage to its storied innovators and alumni. Just steps from iconic colleges, including St. Johns and Trinity, this historic landmark is a welcome retreat for locals and travellers alike.

Following its acquisition by AJ Capital Partners, a full refurbishment was undertaken to this listed building and Elektra was appointed as lighting consultants. We worked on all key public areas including reception, bar, restaurant, function spaces, various drawing rooms, libraries, ballrooms (at times it felt like a game of Cluedo !). The bar is named the Morse bar, in honour of Colin Dexter who worked here for a period.

The key aim of the lighting was to create a space that was simultaneously classic, as befits a listed building in a historic town, with modern elements and technology such as the introduction of a full scene setting dimming system, new bar and back bar and so on. All these elements were aarefully considered and executed with
great care, in harmony with the historic setting and original features.
