Freemans Bay House, Auckland

An eye for the curation of lighting, furniture and objet d'art inform the interiors of this inner-city home. The architecture, inspired by a small pouanamu house by Joe Sheehan, started the journey and resulted in a home of contrasting spaces - open and light filled in some areas and dark and moody in others.

ECC worked directly with the clients and tapped into our extensive range of suppliers to locate lighting that either disappears into the architecture to provide functional lighting or bold visual statements that add individuality to the home.

One example of the architectural lighting is Laser Blade, a block of small, high-powered LED downlights, that are extremely low glare so that when you look at them from a distance they appear to be off. Laser Blade provides task lighting in the kitchen area, but at the same time allows the soft glow of the Mondrian Glass ceiling light to take centre stage.

Likewise Find Me Mono Point, a small directional spotlight, is so subtle that the focus goes straight to the artworks it illuminates.

In the dining area, the magic of Vertigo by Constance Guisset is the etherial way its ribbons float on the breeze. It's light yet substantial enough to fill the double height space and the way it complements that dining chairs make this French pendant a perfect choice for space. In the private spaces, Tom Dixon pendants come to the fore with the rich patina of Flask Oil selected for the bedroom and Stone is the natural choice to blend in with the marble finishes in the bathroom.
