A house can have the most beautiful interior design and stunning architecture, but if the lighting is wrong it simply won’t feel like a home.
The lighting – both natural and artificial – should be considered from the start. The earlier it’s taken into account the more it will complement the interior design and architecture, and work to create the required ambience.
The key to great residential lighting is the quality of light and how it interplays with different surfaces. Because light itself is invisible a common mistake is to put too much emphasis on the hardware or design of a luminaire, above the quality of light that’s being emitted. For example, a chandelier might be chosen because it looks stylish, but how will it actually light a space?
We consider what surfaces should be seen and illuminated, and what composition is required at different times of day.
Forming a composition with layers of light, which includes contrast and drama, to create a cosy and comfortable, flexible and interesting home. We use different styles of lighting at various levels around rooms to create pockets of illumination and shade.
