Following the recent installation of Megaman decorative LEDs throughout the main house at Coombe Abbey, the hotel has once again chosen Megaman lamps to fulfil their lighting requirements in their brand new magnificent marquee. The decision to use Megaman LED lamps throughout their marquee has enabled Coombe Abbey to continue with its energy saving ethos whilst also creating the most suitable lighting solution.
Set in 500 acres of parkland, overlooking formal gardens and a tranquil lake, Coombe Abbey was founded as a monastery in the 12th century and in the 16th century it became royal property. Now a four star country house hotel, boasting 119 rooms, Coombe Abbey has been lovingly restored to its former glory by its current owners, offering a stunning venue for Weddings, Conferences and special occasions. The hotel, with its immaculate grounds and plush en-suite bedrooms, offers the perfect blend of luxury and intimacy. The introduction of their new marquee now enables Coombe Abbey to hold outside events for any occasion all year round for up to 350 guests.
Stuart Eglin of Megaman, along with Yvonne Scott the interior designer at Coombe Abbey, worked together to create a bespoke ‘ground up’ lighting design using a combination of 6W GU10 in-ground uplighters buried around the perimeters of the internal walls and 12W PAR30s in spotlight track fittings fixed to beams spanning the width of the marquee. Megaman’s LED GU10s emit three times less heat than the equivalent halogen lamps, produce 2800K for a warm, ambient colour temperature and have a long life of 50,000 hours, meaning they were the perfect choice for use in the marquee.
Following the installation, Coombe Abbey are once again delighted with the results. The lighting scheme has added a fantastic ambience to the marquee which now provides the perfect setting to any occasion.
