The development of the architectural project of this 400 metre square penthouse in the north of Bogota was based on interpreting the various spaces while respecting the client's personality and defining and characterising the same according to their functional roles. On the first floor there are the private rooms while on the second there are the relax and receptions rooms, which include a terrace which surrounds the penthouse on three sides with an un-paralleled view over the city. The focal point and the key connection between the two areas is the large spiral staircase; an element that has architectural and functional value.
The use of the same wood all over coordinated with the grey tones of the walls and ceilings which contrasts with the black stairs creates a sober and elegant colour palette that strongly characterises and adds personality to all environments.
The lighting project, designed by Schaller Tech, was done largely using Targetti fixtures that were able to meet the needs of the client to establish a dialogue between the formal space and the architectural design.
The use of high performance CCTLED MINI trimless downlights provides warm accent lighting that interacts with the indirect lighting provided by HALL fixtures, specially chosen to emphasize the depth of the coffered ceiling and creates contrasting tones and a dramatic effect in the reception room.
The dual need to respect the formal simplicity of the spaces and emphasize the works of art on display was met by using recessed adjustable OTTO projectors with optical zoom for beam adjustment. Given their extremely compact size these fixtures meet the project needs by providing accent lighting with minimal visual impact.
The task to outline and emphasise the most important architectural details, by harmonising the interior design with the lighting in the space, was entrusted to high performance LED Strips from the Light Lines collection.
The fixtures used are all managed using DALI protocols and can be controlled using a keypad or a special smartphone application.
