Light fantastic

Country House

The addition of a new oak framed extension adds a new dimension to this traditional Guernsey granite house

We were thrilled to be awarded the contract to design supply and commission virtually all the technology in this lovely house. It has been a fantastic project, we are now designing the garden lighting.

A skylight brings natural light into the Kitchen but will leave a dark area at night if no lighting is added. Here we used small LED lights all the way round the skylight to make a feature and provide light to the work surface below.


  • Feature window

Feature window

A lovely stained glass window had been restored and used on the staircase overlooking the new extension. By positioning an LED strip light in the windowsill we were able to both backlight the window onto the stairs and highlight the stained glass in the breakfast room.


  • Hidden lighting

Hidden lighting

Most of the light in the oak framed extension is hidden on top of the oak beams. This illuminates the white sloping ceilings giving soft secondary lighting to the space below.

Halogen wall lights give warm lighting, when dimmed, for a cosy atmosphere for watching TV.
