Case Study: Hilton Aventura Miami

Hilton Aventura Miami

Designer: Prime Group of Hollywood Florida
Lighting: Prizm Lighting

Project Background
Opened in March 2021 in Aventura, Florida, the new 208-room hotel is near two major airports, South Florida’s finest beaches, world-class shopping, golf courses, casinos, and many other hotels in the area.

What is significant about the project?
Prime Design designed the Hilton Aventura Miami with pristine white and gray exterior wraps and an interior canvas of grays with warm neutrals and metallic highlights. Its stylized artistic presence bears oversized garage murals, the black-and-white lobby and in-room art canvases.

To create lighting designs and patterns, Prime Group specified the Pixel Dot series from PRIZM Lighting, featuring a flexible strand, full-color LED nodes designed for extraordinary effects and expansive installations without the constraints of luminaire size, shape, or space. Its linear form factor accommodates two and three-dimensional applications for architectural accent, perimeter lighting, and dynamic displays.  

The lighting at the entrance highlights other features at main reception — white marble flooring, sleek leather lounge chairs, and a modern glass fireplace.

With individually addressable RGBW nodes, the PRIZM Pixel Dot series was designed for direct view, point source lighting, back-lighting, media facades and illuminated curtain walls. It features 6 RGB SMD LEDs with three additional white LEDs per dot, easy interconnecting lead and tail wires for faster installs, and an 80,000-hour performance rated life.

For precise control, the DLC-E DMX controller, also from PRIZM Lighting, was specified to deliver long distance access and communications for the PRIZM Pixel Dot series. Connected to a wireless access point or a Wifi router, the DLC-E DMX controller features easy controls and settings with a mobile device or tablet using the Wi-Light 2 APP. In addition to App-based control, the DLC-E features time clock scheduling.

Through the DLC-E DMX controller, Hilton Aventura Miami plays multiple scenes or “shows” to create custom lighting designs that specifically fit the artistic flair of the hotel.

“The entrance prepares guests for the well-appointed accommodations, a robust culinary program, artful touches, and vibrant lifestyle amenities,” said Jon Krams, National Sales Manager at Prizm Lighting.

Other hotel “wow” factors include extravagant guest suites that start at 406 square feet with floor-to-ceiling views of South Florida. On the seventh floor, guests will find Gala, a signature restaurant, as well as MuseBar, a Hilton Executive Lounge, The Reserve, Library, and an elevated pool deck with skyline views and private cabanas.
