Vail, Colorado

Thumbnail images of lighting design in a Vail home
Project Description...
The architecture of this home is stunning in both form and materials. Our clients wanted to bring a more contemporary design flare to the Vail Valley and allowed us the freedom to experiment with lighting in a new way. From visually levitating a massive stone vanity slab to creating a dynamic color changing niche to greet guests at the front door, this Vail Valley home is a residential lighting designer’s fantasy and a homeowner’s dream. The lighting details were many and really bring the home alive as the sun fades every night.

Snowmass, Colorado

Project Description...
The owners, both artist and art collectors provided ample opportunity to create dramatic lighting effects. Accent lighting plays with form and shadow to accentuate the client’s art collection. Flexibility in the lighting design was necessary as the home is a living breathing art gallery. As art pieces are changed out as their collection expands and evolves. The lighting scheme was designed to be easily adjusted by the homeowners over time. Accent lighting in combination with warm, hidden lighting creates a feel that can only be described as magical.

Aspen West End

Thumbnail images of lighting design in an Aspen, Colorado home
Project Description...
This home in the west end of Aspen was both a historical renovation and an contemporary addition. The lighting design for the historical renovation were very traditional with decorative lighting as the dominant light source, while the contemporary addition included very clean architectural lighting to mesh with the architecture. A splash of colored light was added in the shelving adjacent to the fireplace to give a dynamic lighting effect to the home. Details such as silhouetting were used to create a dramatic feel in the kitchen. Minimal pinhole adjustable lights were used in combination with hidden light sources to create a glare free, functional and comfortable environment.

Aspen, Colorado

Thumbnail images of lighting design in an Aspen, Colorado home
Project Description...
This remodeled home along Aspen’s Roaring fork river was awarded an International Illumination Award of merit by the IESNA. The great room, which is filled with multiple spaces under a single ceiling, was illuminated primarily with recessed adjustable pinhole accents. By using adjustable fixtures and aligning the lights with the architecture, the spaces below are properly accented. The custom plated recessed lights appear as rivets holding together the structure at the seams. Lighting hidden within kitchen cabinets, the fireplace facade and bar counter add warm glows to the great room. An in-floor slot underneath the cantilevered stairs provides functional lighting from the stairs while creating its own art-light sculpture. The lighting design brings out the warm wood features in the office, bedroom and great room.

Project Description...
This 5 Trees residence, featured in Ski Magazine was designed for high energy performance.

The light cables at varying elevations allow for flexibility in rotating the owners’ extensive art collection over time. In the great room, an externally uplight fireplace provides a dramatic foreground for the views to Aspen Highlands ski area.Bathroom mirrors were backlight and vanities were underlit to provide floating effects. Ceiling pop-ups in the lower levels provided the architectural opportunity to integrate cable lights into the bedroom spaces and hallways.

Roaring Fork

Thumbnail images of lighting design in home near Aspen, Colorado
Project Description...
On the banks of the Roaring Fork River just to the North of Aspen lives an IESNA award winning residence. The architectural complexity of this home lends itself to quite a few custom lighting details. Much of the lighting is hidden during daylight ours. As night falls, this home comes alive with hidden lighting details. The central ridge beam in the dramatic great room ceiling is flanked by architectural pockets containing hidden adjustable lights. At the architect’s request, many of the ceilings contain no recessed lights, but rather lighting details that are unique to the unique ceilings in each space.

Edge House

Thumbnail images of lighting design in an Aspen, Colorado home
Project Description...
Another award winning lighting design complements this architectural masterpiece. Perched above Castle Creek in Aspen, the Edge House glows softly at night with well concealed lighting features. Inside flexibility in the Art Hall is given through the use of a flush recessed track and architectural looking track heads. Soft focus lenses are used to eliminate the ability to see where the art light starts and stops. The centerpiece of this contemporary home is a stairway connecting the upper house to the lower house. The risers are backlit, the textured walls are uplit and recessed lights are not used in this long, dramatic stair. Hidden lighting effects and a touch of colored lighting add more visual impact to this incredible home.

This Beaver Creek Residence is chock full of details that marry the lighting to the architecture.

Modern West End

Thumbnail images of lighting design in an Aspen, Colorado home
Project Description...
This modern home combines both state of the art LED lighting with re-wired authentic mid-century modern decorative lights. Original designs by Angelo Lelli can be seen alongside trimless square pinhole adjustable fixtures. The great room, filled with art from artists such as James Turrell, is subtly accented with museum grade accent lights applied to the flush recessed track that follows the shape of this unique great room. Amber LEDs blend well with the exterior architecture and fire features. Other lighting features such as Honey Onyx are backlit dramatically with flat LED light panels. Asymmetric cove lighting in an upper level hallway provides the functional light while a single trimless square pinhole accents provides the punch for the three dimensional sculpture.
