Atmosphere | Interior Design Competition
Light plays a central role in the design of a visual environment. The architecture,
people and objects are all made visible by the lighting. Light influences our well-being, the aesthetic effect and the mood of a room or area.
It is light that first enables spatial perception. Above and beyond this, our perception of architecture can also be influenced with light: it expands and accentuates rooms, creates links and delineates one area from another.
Light can alter the appearance of a room or area without physically changing it. Light directs our view, influences perception and draws our attention to specific details. Light can be used to divide and interpret rooms in order to emphasise areas or establish continuity between the interior and exterior. Light distribution and illuminance have a decisive influence on how architecture is perceived.
When we choosing our interior, it was important to consider the different lighting elements that can be included during the initial design process, as this was help us to achieve the best results. Interior lighting can act as far more than a functional tool, it can help to make unique space and allows to add an individual touch. The correct lighting can also help to make it a safer place. The lighting components that we choose to include depends on the design style and how inhabitants are going to use their space. For example they like to cook, so we incorporate plenty of ‘task’ lighting and recessed lighting, along with ‘convenient’ lighting for use in drawers and cabinets. They like to entertain and plan to use kitchen as a hub in the home to socialise, mood lighting is a must-have addition. Used more for decoration than practicality, mood lighting will add interest and depth to the space, while creating the perfect atmosphere, and it can be coloured too.
