Mews House Dramatic Lighting scheme

Quirke McNamara Consultancy were commissioned to re-design a mews house in North London for a young couple who wanted the space to highlight all the original features such as the brick walls beams and oak doors. The clients wanted to add colour and drama through the lighting scheme, but didn’t know where to begin, which is where QMC Lighting Design came in working with them to create a scheme that would flatter the interior and add a sense of drama to the space.  The lighting was to be the centre of the overall scheme and QMC Lighting Design, the specialist lighting sector of the company, looked at integrating lighting into each room using colour LED fittings within the bespoke AV unit, designing a bespoke star ceiling disc over the master bed that twinkles in the night.  The bathroom has a multitude of both fibre-optic colour-changing fittings over the bath and LED fittings over the frameless mirror and within the glass shower.

They designed a dressing room space where we inset a make-up mirror with 20 bulbs around same as a feature within the room. The TV room has lighting at low level within the bookshelf to cast light across the new walnut floor and also highlight the brick walls throughout.

The ground floor has a bespoke neon sign that was created especially for the clients in raspberry and blue and highlights the brick walls dramatically. Colour changing strip lights have been set into the beams, which change colour in line with the clients’ moods, whether for an evening party or a romantic meal for two.  They sourced a retro-chandelier for over the dining table, which shines light onto the ceiling in a star pattern and creates a soft glow around the table. QMC Lighting Design also inset new ceilings throughout to allow for practical task lighting within the space and they edge lit the stairs casting light onto the clients Banksy artwork collection, which is a key feature of the space.

Overall the design creates a sense of drama and luxury within the space warming up the old warehouse space and blending the retro with the ultra-modern and complimenting the interior features such as the curved glass walls and bespoke storage units as well as the artworks.
