Ames House, Duke Of York Apartments London
Client: Architect: Originate Architects

Ames House is a 1930’s office building behind Chatham House on St James’ Square; the lower floors remain as office spaces, with the 3rd and 4th floors converted to duplex apartments. The existing 5th floor has been demolished and replaced with new double-height penthouse duplexes, together with terraces which have been designed to create unique and spectacular apartments for this prestigious address.

into worked together with Originate Architects and consultants E+M Tecnica to ensure the luxury apartments were beautifully lit using discrete dark light downlights coupled with indirect lighting details. Concealed lighting details included integrated lighting within stair hand rails, cove details, ceiling slots, wall grazing and under glass floor lighting. Dali control using a Lutron system was used for low-end dimming and smooth integration with the rest of the AV and control system. Feature lighting was specified by Originate Architects; which include pendants, floor lights and table lights from designers such as Lee Broom and Rubn.
