The lighting designer Rada Markovic recently he completed the lighting design for a church converted into a private home in Lucca.
It is a former church of the fourteenth century that architects Paola Sausa and Paul Bertoncini Sabatini (Momus Architects) have transformed into a house for the photographer Massimo Vitali.
Rada Markovic has developed a project that offers an optimal balance between efficiency lighting and energy cost-effectiveness, using light sources with LED technology controlled by an intelligent lighting control.
Comply with regulations, the space of the church was not divided, the house is essentially a large open space. Spaces for the bedrooms, bathroom and laundry area were obtained by building a wooden free-standing.
For the kitchen area was used a light source ultra flat (PAD - design Carlotta de Bevilacqua and Paola Arianello of Monaco), an innovative and efficient lighting solution designed by Artemide. A Projector Ceiling 12 LED with two different beam angles for perfect illumination of the work plan of the kitchen without creating glare.
The vaulted ceiling, maintained its original color Blue, is illuminated with the LED strips (CREE LED Strip134W 4000K) mounted on the tie rods of the time, facing upwards. An extremely thin, flexible, powerful and easily customizable, yet sustainable.
(Total length rods 5.4mt. / Total 134W LED 24V + 12350lm 5.4mt. Aluminium support).
Metallic structure STAIRS
Also for the metallic structure of the scales we were used CREE LED Strip high performance, with focused light on the metal structure and the surface of the wall specification.
Studio (former SACRISTY)
In the former sacristy, the study's wife Vitali Annette Klein, the most important aspect is the difference in materials that create a contrast with the open floor plan of the church, here the environment is dominated by exposed brick walls and dark wood of the ceiling.
Here the lighting has been designed to bring out the color of the brick, using LED strips from 29W 3000K placed inside the niches.
