I was helping out at a local heritage property recently – stewarding teh main ballroom area. The bigger of two ballrooms. . . . It struck me for the firt time that the ceiling had downlights and as the house had been completed in the 1700s, there wouldn’t have been any lighting beyond oil lamps and candles. I was looking up to see how these had been installed as the ceiling still looked as complete as the room next door. It turns out that the previous ceiling had been damaged by a devastating mishap with a bathroom above it and the water ingress had brought down a great deal of the original. The lights themselves don’t jump out or down so they are very effective – particularly for the weddings that are carried out in the room – giving just the right amount of soft warm lighting to complement the natural light from the floor to ceiling windows that look out over the expansive grounds. In all, the need for new lighting was well designed and does the job well!
