Project Location Belgravia, London
Entry DescriptionThe brief for this project was to create a home away from home - a comforting space for the client who had an extensive art collection. The property was a grade-listed building which meant there were restrictions in place which affected the lighting design and products used. Our team worked within these parameters to create a flexible and successful scheme, which highlighted artworks and provided an atmospheric space to be in.
Several solutions were applied to light the collection of art. Vorsa Port 30 and 50 spotlights were used to discreetly light the larger canvases. Picture lights were included for a more traditional approach and as a solution to the building guidelines. Decorative lighting provided a soft ambient light and atmosphere to the room. Clever lighting within joinery was key - low level lighting to guide one through the space and connect rooms, and high level to lift the space and highlight architectural features such as the ceiling cornice.
Layers of light were applied to provide the perfect balance of task, ambient and accent light. Light was only placed where necessary - to emphasise artwork and sculpture, key features, and enhance materials and texture.
