Wellness and Wellbeing at The Westin London City – A Nulty Project


The Westin has opened its first UK hotel along the banks of the River Thames in London, boasting iconic riverside views as well as 5-star luxury throughout. A subtle and calming lighting scheme designed to reflect the hotel’s central theme of wellbeing. 

Nulty collaborated with Dexter Moren Associates to design a layered lighting scheme for the venue, which is close to St. Paul’s Cathedral and the River Thames. It produces a serene, composed backdrop laced with drama. 

Nulty Illuminates the Hotel Design 

The Haven, the hotel’s entrance lobby, spans three floors and is flooded with natural light. Track lighting is angled around three sides of the atrium to complement a spectacular suspended paper installation that casts a dappled silhouette on the fourth grey wall, instilling tranquillity. 

The lighting design in the 222 guestrooms includes a number of integrated lighting details that emit a soft glow around features such as the headboard. The suites have an emphasis on balancing light layers, with cove lighting interacting with decorative pendants and lamps. A dimming rotary dial controls all lighting, giving guests control over their own lighting levels and allowing them to set the lighting scene. 

Adjustable spotlights are integrated into a curved wood ceiling and positioned at varying heights in Hithe + Seek, a wine bar on the second floor. The light is hidden to follow the contours of the architectural ceiling, drawing the eye to a series of interlocking globe pendants that add character and intimacy to the space, especially after dark when the bar is visible through the floor-to-ceiling windows. The bar itself is a focal point, with integrated lighting within the joinery and graze lighting beneath the countertop to highlight the beauty of the stone. 

The spa, pool, and fitness area have been designed by Nulty to engulf guests in serenity and tranquillity. This meant paying close attention to the materials in the underground swimming pool by grazing light across the textured surfaces and using lines of illumination to frame and accentuate a series of recessed stone feature walls. Coffer lighting provides warm ambient light from above in the Heavenly Spa by Westin reception area, while diffuse lines of light in the ceiling and walls contribute to the space’s relaxed, intimate feel in the fitness centre. 

Westin Focuses on Wellness and Wellbeing 


The Heavenly Spa by Westin embodies a calming atmosphere thanks to the use of warm lighting in the reception’s ceiling cove and shelving. With horizontal linear grazes of light and recessed illuminated niches casting indirect light onto relaxing guests, the swimming pool area has minimal downlighting. 

By balancing layers of light to promote a sense of space and calm, Nulty’s lighting approach in the guestrooms and suites responds to DMA’s restrained design narrative. Since the Heavenly Bed, a hallmark of The Westin, is the centrepiece, the team used lines of light to create a calming effect around the frame and inside the headboard.
