This beautiful and impressive private house was designed in an industrial-modern style of bare concrete, bringing the outdoors inside. A monochromatic color scheme was chosen for the interior design to integrate with the design. Through lighting, we emphasize the material of the concrete wall in the living room by a skylight which provides natural light during the day, along with spotlights directed at the walls and hidden LED strips, both set into a light cove following skylight’s path, simulating the moonlight which appears to flood the house from the outside. The living room lighting design carries over throughout corridor and into the bedroom. The central family space is also illuminated by recessed spotlights and profiles scattered across the ceiling in a deliberately careless manner.
The large dining table is illuminated by a decorative lighting fixture that is encased in brass creating a warm light and atmosphere. A similar body illuminates the family dining area in the kitchen. In the bedrooms, lighting was applied to the walls, complemented by decorative lighting fixtures for reading. The lower floor, dedicated to children, is also lit at night by recessed lighting, and the billiards table located in the games area has its own functional lighting.
The magnificent pool in the courtyard is illuminated by internal lighting and the water reflects the glints of light that emanate from the light fixtures integrated between the concrete beams of the trellis that shields the outdoor area.
