Entry Description
Starting with an stunning structural design by Harvey Norman Architects, Lighting By Plum were asked to produce a lighting scheme that; kept the ceiling lines clear, accentuated the vaulted ceiling detail and highlighted the grandeur of the structure both internally and externally.

This was achieved by using integrated lighting where possible, plaster in channels allowed seamless lighting in the open plan living area and uplights recessed into the floor highlighted up the brickwork.
Consideration was sought after to ensure appropriate layering of light so both practical and intimate lighting scenes could be created by the RAKO control system.

The skylights created challenges of how to ensure maximum daylight enters the space but ensuring illumination in the evening. The use of recessed channels solved this by providing artificial light in the evening while ensuring daylight was not impeded from entering.

The iGuzzini Trick Fitting highlighted the outside structure of the property whilst remaining hidden during the daytime. The overall integration of concealed lighting added to the success of this project by allowing the lighting to work harmoniously with the architecture.
