Moving from a traditional farmhouse, our clients decided to create a far more modern feel to their new bungalow. The house was designed to be as energy efficient and environmentally friendly as possible, with a grass roof and solar panels, as well as being user-friendly and easy to maintain. The imaginative lighting scheme adds depth, warmth and inspiration to the property.
The open-plan living room at the rear of the property is the key area, with a Poggenpohl kitchen at one end, a dining area in the centre, and a sitting room at the opposite end. The high ceiling has a lantern-style roof with a solid ceiling. LED strips are installed around the sill of this rooflight, creating a stunning effect at night and a sunrise-like glow during the day! A suspended track system over the kitchen island provides excellent working light for food preparation, and a set of three Jack Canto pendants in the dining area illuminate the table. The lighting emphasises the separate zones within the main area, with multiple circuits controlled and dimmed by three Lutron Grafik Eye systems.
