Carlsbad Hilton

The Hilton Carlsbad Oceanfront Resort and Spa is a new luxury destination in Southern California. During the resort’s construction, Troy Custom Design Studio was tapped through Littman Brands Contract to manufacture a series of lighting fixtures that are contemporary, calming, and energy-efficient. Paula Cleary, Principal of Interplan Design, chose lighting colors, shapes, and materials that inspire tranquility rather than overwhelm the senses. Using LED and CFL technology, we were able to meet the energy efficiency requirements of the project without sacrificing warmth of light. The end result is a collection of cylindrical chandeliers, pendants, and sconces situated in the resort’s community spaces. Rounded shapes, earth tones, and sheer organza shades literally and figuratively take the edge off of the environment. Trios of sandy, shaded columns are suspended mobile-style in the “pre-function” area. The fixtures’ extended length fills the room’s vertical space, creating a more intimate and human-scaled environment. Another standout piece features an inner ring of crimson fabric that provides a warm contrast to a cascading core of crystal accents. A leading innovator in the field of energy-efficient and high-quality architectural lighting, Littman Brands company CSL® (Creative Systems Lighting) provided LED lamping to the project. All of Troy Custom Design Studio’s fixtures in the Hilton Carlsbad Oceanfront Resort and Spa were fabricated at the company’s 200,000-square-foot manufacturing facility in City of Industry, California.
