Entry Description

Lighting is to complement Interior Design to the extent of custom designing all the Decorative lights using Interior elements as part of the design. Three types of lighting layers are considered: soft glow light, accent light, and stage light. Human-level lighting is planned; using custom soft glow and high CRI good R9 LED accent lights while providing enough illumination to the table, bounced back to the face. The displays are lit with precision to create a contrast in the space. Architecture lighting act as a stage backdrop and the light is not overly intense. The combination of accent and ambiance lighting balances the lighting in the space and creates drama. In some of the millworks, the displays are deliberately lit from behind to create a silhouette for a more dramatic effect. All the light sources are LED and connected back to the dimming system. Different type of scene settings is selected for a different purpose, according to time. A dim-to-warm linear LED light is used to create an intimate atmosphere for the after-dinner late scene. The general lighting is reduced by using task and ambiance light from the reflected accent and joinery light for more energy-saving.
