His projects can be seen throughout South East Asia, Australia, Japan and USA. Mr. Hill specializes in holiday resort architectural project, with outstanding projects such as The Amannusa in Bali, The Datai in Langkawi, The Aman Resort in Hawaii and The Darwin Centre in Australia. He named his architectural design for The Lalu as “Ongoing Style”, a unique style of moving forward. This type of architectural style will remain fresh even after 10 or 20 years, being an architecture that will be still full of value.

Other than the unique architectural design of The Lalu, our architectural team also paid special attention to the hotel's lighting effects. Lighting effect was integrated into the planning right from the beginning. Lighting designer Nathan Thompson, who teaches lighting arts classes at the Melbourne University in Australia, creates lighting effects for major performing arts groups worldwide and continues to cooperate with major architects in lighting designs. Using effects such as contrasting light and shadow, brightness and dimness, Mr. Thompson excels at using lighting to accentuate objects, create desired moods and produce mystical and dramatic effects. His lighting design appears as splendid as silk brocade or as flowing layers of grain in wood. 





The lighting effect at The Lalu harmonizes with the changing intensity of natural sunlight and is never harsh. Each day, seven lighting changes occur at different time periods and in different settings. At night, the graceful motion of branches and leaves are made visible by lights projected from the treetops to the ground. Lighting at The Lalu reminds us of a line from a famous poem: “Just as the shadows of flowers are carried away by the setting sun, the moon appears and harkens them back”.
