Project Overview

The house is situated in a National Park, and the location is a major influence on the house.  The build is integrated into a site with existing barns and outbuildings.  It makes extensive use of timber, a warm local sandstone and lots of glass.  Most of all it sits in a sheltered yet commanding position with amazing views of the garden and the countryside beyond.  The lighting scheme extends beyond the house making the internal and external spaces one integrated whole.

Matching fittings to suit the architecture

The brief

The strong architectural lines and bold finishes of this house suit a more geometric style.  We’ve blended bold square downlights with a striking contemporary chandelier and nature-inspired sculptured wall lights drawing you into the room.

Downlights

We used bold square downlights as the main light source in this room.  The architecture demanded something a little stronger than usual.  N.B. The downlights used on this project are not part of our standard online range.  Please contact us for details.

Linking the external and interior spaces

The brief

The house benefits from stunning views and a beautifully sheltered location.  Large windows and glass doors mean the interior and exterior need to be treated as a single space.  Continuity of high quality fittings is key here; keeping the colour and quality of the light consistent across the project.

Highlighting local natural materials use in the build

The brief

A little exterior light can go a long way.  From this angle you can really see how the miniature recessed downlights highlight the wooden beams and how much punch you get from a small discrete LED.  A traditional lantern adds a decorative flourish in keeping with the style of the house.

Lighting a high ceiling staircase

The brief

The staircase and open landing area is a high ceilinged space.  Rather than downlight the area we wanted to emphasise the focal points and use a variety of mounting positions to create layers of light.

LD47 step light

Mounted into the stair riser these fittings with an integral tilt shine light across the stair tread.  With a medium beam the spread is wide enough to only need a fitting every other step.  We used a wet spray stainless steel bezel and matched the colour to the paint used on the wall for a very discrete finish.

Recessed wall wash

To wash the striking floor to ceiling stone wall we used a ground recessed walkover linear lensed LED system. The optics allow us to light the whole wall from the bottom.

High power surface mounted spot

This high power surface mounted adjustable spotlight is angled to light a piece of artwork mounted on the wall.  The fitting is colour matched to the ceiling making it unobtrusive despite being surface mounted.

Discrete garden lighting

The brief

This bronze sculpture forms the centrepiece of this raised garden.  We needed to highlight the water feature while disguising the light source.  Hidden from view, out of shot in the planting is a high power adjustable spike mounted LED spotlight.

Elegant & Effective Bathroom Lighting

The brief

Great bathroom lighting needs the highest quality of light, appropriately rated light fittings and careful positioning to deliver accurate shadow-free lighting.

Mirror Lights

Rather than use the lower quality lighting often integrated into mirrors or cabinets we opted to use high quality LED wall lights supplemented with downlights.

Statement Decorative Fittings

The brief

A decorative fitting can be the chance to add some fun.  Typically the architectural fittings do the hard work but it is often the decorative fitting that grabs the attention.

A warm welcome

The brief

The theme of lighting the stone and timber for a warm, welcoming look extends to the front of the house.  The same LED uplights are used to highlight the stone.  More powerful downlighting is needed as this area doesn’t benefit from the same interior light source as the back.
