DLF Mangolias 2

DLF Magnolias is an elite apartment community located in Gurgaon’s upscale Golf Course neighbourhood, in Sector 42 Gurgaon. Widely acclaimed as NCR’s crown jewel, this housing complex is situated on the DLF Golf Course, and faces a reserve forest. It is also best connected to all the commercial destinations, high-end offices and upscale malls with the upcoming Rapid Metro line. Since 2010, this has been the area of the highest end development.

Challenge

The reception area was a generous space with significant ceiling height.

The lighting needed to create focal points within this vast space, while equally creating an ambiance that was soft and welcoming as was to be expected of a residence.

Solution

The lighting was developed to draw the eye through the space toward the reception wall, which was located behind a minimalist reception desk.

A textured wall was suggested as part of the lighting scheme. The wash of colour change LED light created a dramatic textured effect on the wall. The crisp lines of integrated lighting within the ceiling soffit allowed for general light, while lighting the artwork by introducing a standing lamp to the seating area created a soft localised ambient light.
