Project Overview

This wonderful 1730’s barn was both a challenge and very exciting to light. The clients wanted to create a vibrant space for their young family, creating a contemporary feel whilst accentuating the stunning old barn features.

Challenges included lighting the 9.5m high central space without losing intimacy and ‘connection’ with the ground level, and conversely, creating a sense of height in some of the upstairs bathrooms which were tucked in under the eaves.

Lighting a 9m high space

The brief

The 9m high central area in the barn needs a multi-layered approach to provide a sense of continuity through the space.

Layers of light in the kitchen

The brief

The kitchen has a surprisingly low ceiling for such a tall building.  The lighting is built up in layers with task lighting, ambient lighting and accent lighting all given careful attention.

Lighting for low ceilings in the bathrooms

The brief

The bathroooms are squeezed into the roof space creating rooms with very low ceilings.  The challenge was to lift these small spaces.
