Our Concorde hangar lights, sadly no longer available, flew to destinations worldwide. The top prize for most remote location goes to the Villa Gris, an impressive private residence/micro hotel built in the emptiness of south western Australia.
The building was conceived as a simple rectilinear ‘bridge’ with the structure being grounded at each end. The first floor creates a 9m clear span beneath which the glass walls can slide effortlessly into the structure to create a wall-less room with panoramic views and a seamless connection with the outside.
A high level of environmentally sustainable functionality was an important consideration; therefore both passive and active systems to effectively create a stand-alone, off-grid project were included in the brief.
We just so happen to think that our Concorde pendant lights look pretty magnificent in this unlikely context.
