"Unlike in the kitchen or bathroom, the living room does not have to be planned with so much light intensity.
For basic lighting, we recommend about 100 lumens per square metre. Whether direct, indirect, LED spots or warm-white pendant luminaires, what matters is how they are mixed! The concrete ceiling in the living room of Villa Aldinger in particular required forward-looking lighting planning. This is because new light outlets cannot be created here as easily as with suspended and plastered ceilings.
With the living room lighting, it is even possible to influence how the room is perceived using different light sources. This is because when diffuse or indirect light falls on bright room elements such as white ceilings or walls, they serve as reflective surfaces for the light, thus making the living room appear larger.
