A “powerful building” says Grand Designs. Lighting by Astro.
"One of the largest homes we've ever filmed…a powerful building". Grand Designs' Kevin McCloud was in no doubt about the significance of the 9 bedroom, 700 sq m house built on the Isle of Wight by Bram and Lisa Vis. This extraordinary modern property, just 100 m from the Solent, required very special lighting to do it justice.
The inspired scheme which Frank Kelly of Light Partners, Newport, provided includes more than 230 Astro luminaires. Trimless downlights, marker lights, pendants, shades, wall lights inside and out - this one-off beach house has them all. The end result, aired on Grand Designs in September, is a dream home and the perfect case study for brilliant architecture brought to life with light.
