private residence provided an excellent scope to explore new lighting
techniques with the added complication of designing lighting for an
existing listed structure. Careful consideration was taken to minimise
disruption to the fabric of the existing building and to conceal as
many light sources from view.
residence also benefited from reclaimed and renovated roof structures
within the main living spaces, which provided a perfect opportunity
for expressing the structural qualities of the exposed ceiling. A simple
light fitting was developed to sit within restricted spaces within the
roof lines. These were concealed from view to up light and down light
the exposed pitch beamed ceiling to the main living space and leisure
minimal use of lighting equipment and careful integration into the interior
as well as an architectural lighting control system has made a success
of this project.
touches of colour in the pool area provide contrast to the extensive
red birch details, which are also clearly visible from the exterior.
The exterior is sympathetically lit with low level lighting and architecturally
sympathetic wall lights that blend and compliment the architecture.
