This modern mountain home with detached guest cabin was designed and built as a high-end residence to be directly listed in the real estate market. The lighting design strove to illuminate key architectural elements such as the large mass stone walls and expansive ceiling planes while minimizing custom detailing.
A strict budget was adhered to therefore, Halo downlights were used throughout both residences. Used for accent and general lighting in the main house and for accents only in the guest cottage, the 3-inch adjustable downlights allowed artwork and architectural features throughout to be well illuminated, contributing to the homes luxury feel. LED lamping throughout both homes lowers the connected wattage and reduces maintenance.
The main residence hosts a complete home control system while the cabin has limited control in the main living spaces. The control systems aid with energy savings, keeping fixtures dimmed as well as helping realtors to show the homes with simple “house on” and “house off” scenes.
Creating a sense of home while retaining flexibility within the spaces was very important and was successfully managed by generalizing the lighting layouts with a few special accents to elevate the design.
