The architectural interior space chosen is the drawing room in a residential apartment. The drawing or the living room is the nerve centre of any residential dwelling. It is where most of the interactions, debates, happy moments, and feelings are being expressed. It plays the role of an entertainment centre in the house and offers everyone in the house to come together and exchange talks. Besides, it also provides a location for treating guests which often spend most of their time in the living room. All or most social activities of people of the house and guests happen in the living room.
The room at night may require a good lighting all across, to have perfect visualisation for all people part of the living room. The lighting being focussed on seating area may not provide sufficient light to the person sitting on the floor or talking while standing. It is very important to illuminate the face of the person with whom the conversation is on, and hence it may need a good amount of efficient lighting distribution for better visibility.
The alternatives to the present lighting are many. One of them is to have higher number of smaller lights which actually focused and illuminated every part of the room and highlights people and objects inside the room. The window could be made broader to have more sunlight come in and provide natural light reducing the use of electricity. The lighting needs to be set up into three layers in a perfectly lit room, which are overhead lighting, task lighting, and accent lighting (LeBlanc, 2014). This indicates that the room above has more of ceiling lights and less of task and accent lights. Sometimes, the lighting on the wall may be required to attract the observer to the wall texture or the art collection which is to be displayed. The lighting in the room could reduce the overhead light and adjust the reflection by providing few more task lights like a small reading light at the corner. Lighting helps in the observance and perception capabilities of people, and it also helps in providing appropriate illuminating locations and avoiding unnecessary lighting.
