Lake Washington Villa
Lakefront luxury home with updated design to enhance landscaping and art on Mercer Island
Northwest Outdoor Lighting was recently hired to update the lamped fixtures of this Lake Washington multi-million-dollar mansion and bring them into the 21st century. We created a new design that enhanced the structure, landscaping and art that surrounds this mansion.
The front entrance of this mansion now has 40 LED integrated fixtures highlighting the tall Palms, Japanese Red Maples and porte-cochere marble statue. Due to the 360-degree viewing potential around this statue, it was critical to keep light glare to a minimum. For this, we used 9 mini spotlights with a 1” diameter. This allows for full illumination coverage of the statue from all angles while the petite fixtures are tucked into the lower part of the structure-barely visible. This mansion now has a grand presence when arriving at the front gate.
We were also asked to address the 150’ dock so that guests could enjoy nighttime boating and sunset watching. We also installed low profile fixtures asymmetrically along both sides of the dock creating a serpentine wash effect. Additionally, the fire pit now has a welcoming glow effect, creating a space for guests to gather and enjoy the nighttime ambiance. Over 40 fixtures were installed across the rear of the estate, creating a luxurious environment for entertainment and relaxation.
