Villa PLP

LOCATION: DOHA, QATAR
USE: RESIDENTIAL
SCOPE: INTERNAL, EXTERNAL, FAÇADE
& LANDSCAPE LIGHTING DESIGN
YEAR: 2012

This complex of three beach houses is located at the Pearl Of Qatar, in a prime location overlooking the bay and the city of Doha. The architectural theme, developed by BEAD Architects & Engineers, is based on the movement of the sea, where wavy walls structure the space and connect the different villas, while maintaining their independence.

The lighting design concept for both the internal and external areas was inspired by the beach and the sea, and the relaxing atmosphere they generate. In order to bring these ideas to life, the sea colors, sun infiltrations and reflections became the main elements to imitate. These were translated into lighting strategies through the use of perforated shades, lighting objects, floating effects and clean lighting cuts in walls and ceiling. The interior design was complemented with a selection of decorative lighting elements, where materials, finishes, sizes and lighting levels were carefully studied to achieve a balanced and stimulating setting.

The core idea for the façade lighting was to achieve a high contrast between the interior spaces and the wavy walls, illuminating the perforations and rendering the overall shape of the complex.

The entire lighting system is centrally controlled by a BMS, where scenes and behaviors were carefully studied to maximize the building's performance and living experience.
