The luxurious The Well spa and hotel is located just a few minutes from the centre of Oslo. At 10,500 m2, it is Scandinavia’s largest spa and bathing centre, with 11 indoor and outdoor pools, 15 saunas and steam rooms, over 100 showers, waterfalls, a Japanese bath house, a Turkish hammam, rhassoul treatments and numerous relaxation rooms. The Well also offers fine dining, and guests can enjoy traditional and fusion cuisine interspersed with moments of relaxation in a complex entirely dedicated to their physical and psychological wellbeing.
The largest resort in the Nordic region is nestled in the heart of a peaceful pine forest. The rooms are decorated in a Norwegian style with meticulous attention to every detail. While each one is different, they all face onto the forest, creating a connection with the vegetation. The proximity to this vast coniferous forest, which changes with the seasons almost like a living work of art, was an important consideration in the entire process of building the hotel and offering the wellbeing that comes from a total immersion in nature. Influenced by spa traditions and culture from all over the world, the resort provides a tranquil space that nurtures your mind, body and soul.
In the wooded area, 30 life-size sculptures have been scattered strategically along a lighted pathway. The trail, which is about 300 metres long, was given emphasis with a design by SML Lighting and the choice of Linear 2.1 outdoor bollards, 8.5W 3000K, with an asymmetrical light output, a custom height of 1000 mm and anthracite finish in a customized DALI version, which demarcate and illuminate the sinuously curved path.
To light the statues, Ginko 2.0 projectors, 7W 24Vdc 3000K, were installed with 34° and 45° optics, honeycomb louvres and asymmetrical snoots. Two different installation methods were used for the fixtures: mounted on the ground with stakes or fixed to tree trunks with fastener straps, in order to obtain two different lighting effects. Ginko projectors were specifically designed to light plants, trees and features in gardens and parks, and they offer great versatility and a variety of light outputs, while their body is made of low-copper-content aluminium alloy for excellent resistance to corrosion.
