A modern tree house, this town-home was designed as a personal art gallery and residence. Spaces flow into one another on each level and between levels. The goal was to provide lighting flexible enough for large art pieces to be placed on any wall surface, sculptures at nearly any location, and be comfortable for entertaining and daily living. And, the engineered wood trusses were already in place, not at even intervals, and could not be moved. Coming up with a pattern that made sense in the ceiling and provided for all the homeowner’s lighting requests was the challenge.
