Fairmont Hotel at Three PNC Plaza

Inspired by the city’s industrial past — Illuminated steel and glass elements create a resounding ‘wow’ effect.

As you walk into the Fairmont Hotel you’re greeted with a sense of glamour and elegance. Every detail, down to the location of furniture, has been artfully thought out to create a timeless aesthetic where guests can enjoy their stay. The hotel, located in the City of Pittsburgh can accommodate up to 185 rooms. HLB designed dynamic lighting solutions for the public spaces, 12,000 square feet of meeting space, ballroom and prefunction, spa, restaurant, lobby lounge, guestrooms, and corridors.

The lighting design enhances special features such as illuminating decorative colored panels and employing the use of square recessed metal halide downlights in ceiling areas, which echo the linear forms of the architecture. The team worked on fixture selections which complement the architectural lighting as well as meeting sustainability goals.
