Belgravia Pied-à-Terre

1/5

A 1950s mansion building in Belgravia is home to this luxury two-bedroom apartment.  The apartment is a conversion from two smaller apartments by architects Voon Wong & Benson Saw.  The architects were to streamline the existing spaces so that windows, walls and doors were better aligned to bring light into the apartment



Concrete ceilings throughout the apartment and limited possibilities for installation of light fittings into walls and flooring called for creative thinking in order to provide an effective lighting solution



To the centre of the apartment, the entrance hall lacks natural daylight so a coffered ceiling with floating edge detail from the Viabizzuno range was used.  Dimmable, consistent colour, linear LEDs are mounted behind providing an up-lit effect that gives the space height and a feeling of being immersed in natural light



In the sitting room lighting was integrated into the bespoke bookcase to provide diffused lighting to the room.  Freestanding lights and a neon sculpture supplement this lighting and dimmers allow the room to be balanced to suit the time of day and the desired mood



The bedrooms are lit entirely using decorative freestanding and wall lights.  Keeping the lighting at a low level in these two rooms helped to create a more tranquil, serene space.  The finishes and fabrics chosen for the lights reflect the luxurious textures and colours used elsewhere in the apartment

Throughout the apartment, the lighting control was kept to a minimum.  Each room features dimmers and switches from Forbes & Lomax
