Private Residence 136


The main focus in this project was the lighting scheme for the verdant landscape of the contemporary home. With intent to create an intimate yet welcoming ambience, the light is concentrated on the lower levels of greenery using 7W projectors. The sprawling Champa tree is uplit to accentuate its presence and generate verticality at one end of the garden, while the pergola structure on the other side is fitted with customized 4-inch magnetic fixtures in 4W that highlight the suspended planters, and cast tarns of gentle light on the passageway. The water body is fitted with underwater LED luminaires that makes the pool glow from within, creating an ethereal ambience. A 12V DC supply with drivers placed in the basement is used throughout this area to provide for a safe environment for the children, as well as easy maintenance of the fully dimmable lighting system.
