Modeled after Rome’s Villa Medici, The Breakers Palm Beach is a 125-year-old luxury resort that oozes old world seaside glamour. Located on 140 oceanfront acres, Harry Flagler’s statement hotel was designed by Shultze and Weaver, who created several top New York City hotels including the Pierre, the Sherry-Netherland, and the Waldorf Astoria. The Breakers guest register includes Rockefellers, Astors and Vanderbilts, Andrew Carnegie, J.P. Morgan, and several U.S. Presidents. Now dedicated to environmental stewardship, The Breakers is a Green Power Partner of the EPA, striving for energy efficiency and ecologically friendly practices, so it is fitting that the towers and balustrades of the historic façade are illuminated by color changing IP68 8.8 RGBW RibbonLyte in custom WH35 channel fixtures from Acolyte, specified through our partners at Lighting Dynamics with effects controlled through our 5 Channel DMX Interfaces. This installation brings modern currency to the opulent hotel, marrying state-of-the-art LED technology with Gilded Age architecture.
