The plan of a modern 5-star hotel, located in what was once one the largest metropolises of the ancient world, was altered following the discovery, through excavations for the foundations, of Byzantine-period mosaics and archaeological remains dating back to Roman times. Thus, in addition to providing all the comforts of a hotel facility: suites, restaurants, spas, and recreational spaces, the complex also preserves the entire archaeological area, enabling visits and becoming a “museum hotel”. A single system of LED projector lamps embedded into the architecture and integrated into the roofing take up a minimum of space and accomplish the dual task of illuminating the various hotel functions and the archaeological area.
