Play of light

Lyon, France

A very contemporary new-built house.

Clean and refined design, sober space, opening towards the terrace, swimming pool and garden.

Daylight is key here, coming mainly from the huge bay-windows and various openings throughout the building.

Artifical lighting takes over at night, extending perception of high brightness, providing a dress for the architecture, but also bringing contrasts and atmosphere.

This play of light comes from extremely discrete architectural fittings, concealed linear lighting in selected places, and decorative lights.

Powerful yet “invisible” light on the terrace just outside the living room keeps this “in-out” feeling.

Accent and path lighting is provided on specific outside areas, for a subtle enhancement.

Another great collaboration with Dark Side of the Room for lighting control, and Marlène Reynard’s Interior Design studio.
