Designed by award winning architect Adrian Amore, The Loft Apartment is an incredible space to behold. The dynamic sculptural elements within seem as though he carved the space in fluid lines. Whilst many warehouse designs look to the majestic views as their prized possession, Adrian turns the attention inward and creates the magic within.
The lighting design was executed to be sensitive to such a bold sculptural interior, and was created to enhance the elegance of his design; the white forms transforming with light and shade.
The Kitchen bench positioned under high ceilings, required illumination. Here we wanted to create an intimacy with the kitchen and with the lighting solution we defined the space and grounded it with an elegant suspended linear system. This lighting also enabled flexibility, with dimming and adjustability of the luminaires.
Other areas were subtly and sparing lit following curves and shapes revealing elements in the volumes, and allowing the light to sculpt the sweeping white forms.
