This penthouse is tailored to highlight the homeowners’ rotating art collection with a variety of linear direct-view and wall wash fixtures. Clean lines and custom millwork are emphasized with integrated lighting while strategically placed downlights provide additional illumination. With prime views of the city and curated artwork, this penthouse will make a lasting statement.



This majestic mountain home was designed as a family retreat, a place to get away and form lasting memories. Uniquely situated, the home is designed to take in the adjacent fields and the panoramic mountain range beyond. A variety of linear lighting details were used to bring the exquisite ceiling finishes to life. Barrel vault ceilings required the addition of a substantial crown around the perimeter of the room, mimicking the drapery valence at the windows. Where applicable, the barrel vault detail continues to the exterior of the home, forming a unified ceiling plane through the arched windows. Years of coordination and detail oriented design have resulted in a unique, exceptional, and welcoming family home.

This mountainside home embraces structural architecture with a Native American influence. Wood and stone finishes are emphasized with a variety of techniques creating a multi-layer canvas that invites occupants to explore the home, guided by integrated or placed totems and enjoying private nooks. The neutral architectural palate is offset with pops of color introduced with interior furnishings and artwork. The lighting mimics this dichotomy, using hidden linear sources in combination with minimally dispersed downlights as a base layer, then accenting with strategically placed downlights for artwork and decorative pieces, creating drama and accenting the homes distinct style.

2017 Winner of the IES Illumination Design Award


Horizontal planes ground this contemporary home which boasts amazing views of the Northern California hillside. Clean architectural design led to a minimalist approach to lighting design by using square aperture downlights as both general and accent light throughout the home. Uplights and hidden linear elements highlight architectural materials while carefully selected decorative fixtures create drama and visual interest. Landscape fixtures highlight the stone façade, as well as a water feature while tree mounted lighting throws a leaf projection patterns along the pathways, creating a moonlit feel.

2012 Winner of the IES Illumination Design Award


This mountain home’s “uncompromisingly modern” architecture is a union of glass, stone, steel and wood. Following this lead, the lighting design is used to strengthen these elements, emphasizing steel and reclaimed barn wood with linear lighting. Contemporary light fixtures create visual interest with unconventional style and placement. Recessed and surface mount accent lighting illuminates the artists canvases and statuary. The spaces are open and inviting, celebrating the surrounding environment.

ARCHITECTURE – Candace Miller Architects GENERAL CONTRACTOR – Hansen Construction PHOTOGRAPHY – Steve Mundinger


Celebrating the area’s mining heritage while incorporating a modern aesthetic, this family home works in perfect harmony. Linear lighting elements highlight the architectural planes and finishes while decorative fixtures provide warmth and style in the spaces. The lighting design had to accommodate limitations with the home’s structure and requests for high levels of illumination. Where structure prevented traditional lighting techniques, direct view linear lighting strikes the balance to provide evenly illuminated work surfaces and industrial appeal.
