Christmas Case Study – Hilton Hotel Heathrow Terminal 4, Ambius

on Monday, 11 November 2019. Posted in News

With entry deadlines soon to be announced, you'll all be thinking about which installations and maintenance projects you'll be entering in next year's Leaf Awards. So we thought it was a good time to remind you of some of this year's Gold Award winners.

This month we will be featuring Design and Installation Awards for Christmas installations. Topical! This first one is by Ambius for their installation at the Hilton Hotel Heathroow Terminal 4 last year.

General information
The client increased their contract value to add even more Christmas items to the site. With a large number of hotel and business guests passing through the hotel over the Christmas period, they wanted to ensure a festive feel to all of their guests and colleagues alike.


Adding more garlands to cover all the link bridges within the hotel as well as the addition of an extra tree and poinsettias on the tables in both the bar and executive lounge, we ensured that whatever the reason for any of their client's visits, there would be a magical Christmas feel to the hotel.

Reception and bridges

The hotel felt warm and festive from the moment that anyone walked in, which came teamed with their scenting contract being changed to the Christmassy mulled spices.
