More often than not, clients who take advantage of Hammerton’s custom capabilities are also looking for us to solve big design challenges. Case in point: this 7,000 square foot Beaver Creek bachelor pad, designed by Martin Manley Architects and built by DW Dantas Construction. With soaring ceilings and heavily textured floor-to-ceiling finishes in reclaimed woods and exotic stones, the house was perfect for its bachelor owner. Interior designer Annette Phan envisioned a chic, yet masculine modern look that fully embraced its mountain surroundings, and asked Hammerton to design lighting to suit.
The combination of high ceilings and a tactile-heavy aesthetic, however, created a difficult design dilemma. The home was yearning for bold, voluminous light fixtures, but the interiors couldn’t handle more visual weight amidst all the richly textured finishes and beefy furnishings. Says Hammerton’s design chief, Levi Wilson, “The lighting had to provide volume, contemporary drama and a distinctly masculine feel without the mass and weight typically associated with large fixtures. So choice of materials, design and detail were all critical.”
For the larger spaces in the home, Wilson and his team designed a series of contemporary silhouettes featuring loosely assembled geometric forms, and selected an airy palette of fused glass, light mica and mesh materials. Steel is incorporated only sparingly, as either a structural or decorative element. Each signature fixture offers a unique interpretation of Wilson’s design vision, which adds a pleasing element of surprise to each space.
We’d love to hear your thoughts. What do you think about the Hammerton custom lighting design in this Beaver Creek home?
