A property developer’s spare office in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, had the luxury of space.
Several lights were installed in the floor and on the lower walls, freeing the ceiling from clutter. Openings for lights, air conditioner diffusers and sprinklers were carefully coordinated. “We don’t want to turn ceilings into Swiss cheese.” Some of fixtures not only provide light but function as art works: a field of pebbles contains light sculptures.
The ceiling soars 25 feet high, a verticality emphasized by the space’s linear design. Installing lights at intermediate levels creates drama. Reflecting light toward the ceiling softens the overall effect. In order to avoid lighting the work area from the ceiling, Uli+friends collaborated with the project architects to create additional volumes. Not only is the workspace more attractively and efficiently illuminated from the dropped volumes but they compliment the architectural design and add visual excitement.
