Island escape

A well-known music artist and a photographer built their summer house on the island of Gotland outside the coast of Sweden. The place can be symbolized as the couple’s on/off button; it is a place for silence, solitude, tranquillity and relaxing as well as a place for gathering with friends for great, vivid and happy parties.

The architects chose to build the house of concrete to fit the old army base area and the rough nature of the island. Casambi’s partner Orbium was chosen to light up the house in a simple and subtle way to fit the rough materials and the beautiful nature. Concrete is, of course, a material that does not allow for much new wiring after it is ready so a wireless control system like Casambi was a perfect choice as a lighting control solution.

Casambi modules are integrated within the Orbium fixtures and the couple uses the Casambi app and the wall switches for controlling the lighting. The lighting scenes fit well the symbolisation of the on/off button- one scene is called “In the need for wine” and one “Time to sleep”. “This is a very spartan house with the feeling of an expensive hotel” says the artist.
