Herne Bay Apartment

A high end apartment refurbishment in one of Auckland’s most prestigious suburbs.


Our lighting design places emphasis onto the beautiful vertical finishes –  allowing for a contrast in materials and surfaces when viewed across the spaces. In high rooms we used super narrow beam optics to provide small pools of light to the furniture to draw the eye down. In other rooms upwards light make the spaces feel bigger and brighter.


This apartment had a mix of ceiling heights which presented some challenges. Making shallow rooms feel bigger and high rooms feel more intimate was the challenge.

“We have used Sam to assist us with lighting calculations and modelling for some of our projects. Sam is extremely professional and always delivers on the timeframes set.”
