The Dome House, Greece

8 years ago Residential

A conundrum that faced an Anglo-French couple that built a Cycladic style house on the Caldera of Santorini, was sourcing lights that could be incorporated into the architectural scheme of domes and barrel vaulted ceilings.

Having considered various ideas, styles and genres, the sheer variety of pendants and wall lights offered by skinflint proved to be the answer.

In total over 60 light fixtures were supplied, ranging from French Holophane wall lights and converted signal lights from a frigate by Francis of Bolton to fluorescent lights by British manufactures Victor and Hayes.

Now a stunning six bedroom house on the Greek island of Santorini, overlooking the Aegean sea, this beautiful piece of architecture is also an archive where the lights proudly proclaim their origins.
