Kayser Private home
Altenheiner + Wilde Architekten, Lüdenscheid
Thomas Mayer, Neuss
Living space for the family and free space for your head. With a lot of patience and attention to detail, and in harmonious teamwork, the architect and building sponsor have realised a living concept intended to represent consciously an opposite world to turbulent professional life.
The residential house consists of three wings in exposed concrete construction that are assigned the functions: quietness, entertainment and amenities. These areas are linked together by the central hallway.
Conversely, two Hi-trac tracks suspended on pendant tubes in the curved hallway enable flexible lighting with pendant downlight components for general lighting, Quinta floodlights for the vertical illumination of the walls and Quinta spotlights for highlighting certain points of interest in the room.
The exposed concrete construction necessitates that the lighting design is done with careful thinking and foresight, because, to mount the downlights - like those here in the dining area - the relevant housings must be cast into the ceilings.
Clever lighting details can be found all over the house: such as the economical, accent lighting in the bathroom using Oseris spotlights on Minirail tracks, the dramatic scenic lighting of the entrance porch using Nadir recessed-floor luminaires or the safe illumination of the stairs with floor washlights.
