The brief for the lighting design in this beautiful North Yorkshire country house was to create the warmth and elegance of a luxury country hotel. Lighting is integral to the feel of the house; it provides great functional task light, drama where appropriate and the odd surprise. The project covered the whole of the interior with external lighting in the extensive gardens.
The lighting design is complemented by a house-wide lighting control system from Rako. The lighting control system offers scene control, security integration and house-wide commands like “whole house off” and “holiday mode”.
Hekowa Up/Down light
The Hekowa fires light up and down the pillar, taking your eye up and raising what could be an oppressively low space
Twin Grid Downlight
Individually circuited. These downlights provide great working light across the island with no awkward shadows.
Bay Window Uplights
These miniature LED uplights provide accent lighting in the elegant Bay Window.
Recessed coffer lighting in the Orangery ceiling gives a warm glow. It helps mark out one of the zones in this multi-purpose room.
Subtle Step Lighting
The LD47 fitting delivers a subtle wash of light across the steps. The stair lighting is one of the layers of light in this welcoming scheme.
Giovi Wall Light
The Giovi wall light adds a little surprise to the smallest room in the house. A classic example of the perfect fitting for a certain location.
