In illuminating loft spaces – especially those with very high ceilings – it’s essential to keep rooms visually cohesive while avoiding the look and feel of a warehouse. Of great importance here was highlighting artwork, book collections, and furniture. The key was to design with sophistication but without retention. With the correct placement of light, height can be broken up, and a space made more coherent.
Illuminating pendant fixtures with each other casts enigmatic shadows, bringing a remarkable three dimensional feeling in the room. Recessed wall lights, irregularly placed, cast an uneven pattern of light, which also breaks up the conventional architectural lines.
