This mountain residence combines traditional architecture with modern lines and rustic finishes to create a unique home that compliments its environment. The lighting throughout the home was designed to highlight architectural forms with a minimal impact from the source. Mounting exterior light fixtures to the exposed structure under the decks created pools of light without the light pollution that can be caused from using decorative fixtures. LED accent lighting throughout the home minimizes energy costs while highlighting ceilings and walls. A house wide dimming system uses customized scenes with balanced light levels to create a comfortable environment. The rooms multiple layers of light are simplified with the use of the scenes with buttons for room on, low and off easily accessible from the room’s entryway. Consistency of design, accents of architectural forms and materials, and ease of use were the basis for this design and the end result is remarkable.
