Located in the prestigious Pacific Palisades, this California residence enhances the best of the mountain view of the Pacific Ocean while remaining close to the greater Los Angeles area. To clean ceiling designs, special lighting zones were integrated to cluster light fixtures. Selection of fixtures which could work within the location restraints while still remaining functional resulted in an organized layout.
A design comprised exclusively of compact fluorescent and infrared halogen lamps, typically used in commercial applications, was ahead of its time in this residence was constructed. Low energy whimsical decorative fixtures are located in feature areas of the residence. By selecting specific locals for these special fixtures and ensuring low energy lamping, the pieces become decorative art which is environmentally conscience.
