Upper Swan Residence
Nestled in the wetlands of the Swan Valley, the owners of this architect designed residence wanted to create a home that was in harmony with its rural surroundings on the banks of Ellen Brook. Mondoluce was given the opportunity to design and supply the lighting for the entire home.
With the kitchen lighting, flexibility was the essential criteria in the lighting design, enabling scene setting with up to six different lighting scenes for main living areas and the theatre. There is the combination of indirect lighting systems mounted within a pelmet detail off the kitchen bulkhead. This linear system includes a high output white light source, along with two low light level sources, one being a warm white tone and the other being a blue light for special occasions. The main bedroom upstairs is illuminated with a combination of wall mounted up lights and strategically placed down lights, while the dressing room features a high output indirect linear system, reducing the shadows that can sometimes occur with down lighting alone.
Set on a large plot of land, the natural landscape inspired strategically positioned lighting to accentuate the architecture of this beautiful bushland home. Utilizing a combination of point source spot lights mounted in the gardens and linear flood lights to wash carefully selected features. A strong emphasis on good colour rendering light sources to highlight feature rock walls and many plant species throughout the property.
