The condo’s designer chose to invest in lighting as one of the “protagonists of the space”. Ketra’s High Def Palette and tunability made lighting a transformative agent in executing the space’s design goals and enabled a variety of moods. Recessed downlights that almost disappear and illumination concealed behind the millwork created a quiet ceiling and maintained window views. Because the owner wanted unobscured views to the outdoors even at night, Ketra’s warm dimming was key to helping avoid glare on the windows. Programmable Lutron Palladiom shades with brackets also protected the condo’s stunning views from obstructions.
For an enhanced feeling of comfort and well-being, indoor and outdoor lighting were seamlessly matched throughout the day and into the evening using Ketra’s Natural Show, which aligns interior lighting with the sun’s path across the sky. The ability to sit inside the space and tune both the lighting and shading with the single Lutron app during the finish-out phase was key to making last minute tweaks and ensure the space was perfect throughout the day. In addition, cherished artwork was illuminated by Ketra, using Vibrancy to make colors pop and preset scenes to wow guests during art demonstrations. The experience is completed with a handheld Lutron Pico remote to shift between the variety of lighting combinations. Finally, to honor the lake and greenway views, biophilic elements such as plants were carried throughout the home.
