Hoggeston… Quintessentially British
Brief: To provide lighting design to a ground floor extension on an individual village cottage, lots of exposed oaks beams, reclaimed brickwork, vaulted ceiling, wide array of bi-fold oak framed doors to champion natural quality building materials
Offering all the charm of a bygone era this extended part thatch cottage located in un-spoilt countryside with picturesque views is glorious. Discrete up lighting to highlight ceilings, wall feature luminaires providing warmth and a cosy feel and with a modern twist utilising thin matt black tube pendants blending with the black cast metalwork of the build. Zoning the living area from the dining area, all combined to compliment home. Some Fitz Fryer glass pendants over the dining table were a great success whilst subtle miniature downlighters in front of each bifold door eliminated the darkness of an evening providing a natural transition to the outdoors. We visited here in mid summer, and as you step outside, looking across endless English countryside, it was truly breath-taking.
This project was pure simplicity and letting the building and surrounding views be the absolute focus and feature….argghhh, we really must find a reason to revisit here, again on a summers afternoon!
Our photographer is working hard to bring you images of this amazing project soon.
