Bridge lighting contemporary-hall

Bridge lighting

This home's bridge was illuminated from a lensed linear in-floor light strip to keep the ceiling clean. From the exterior, warm glows reflect off the wood ceiling from an invisible source. When crossing the bridge the singular linear source creates an unexpected connection between the master wing and the main house.

This was a custom lens over an LED light channel. Totally possible. If you can get enough light bouncing around, this type of lighting can work without with having any downlighting. It is important to have surfaces with appropriate reflective properties and a light strip with a good output.

Good luck!

The architect was Tom Cole at Point's west architecture in the Vail Valley in Colorado. Tom could probably answer that one. He can be reached at

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Sheridan Interiors, Kitchens and Baths added this to Universal Lighting Design Strategies for 4 Key Home Areas
This bridge incorporates linear floor lighting. This is a good example of pathway lighting and visual cueing. This idea can be transferred to a regular hallway using the same lighting type, or you can also use recessed floor lights to create a similar effect. Lights placed closer to the wall and with an etched diffuser should reduce or eliminate any glare.

Any interest in adding another material to the hallway ceiling? Tin? (That would tie in with the look of polished metal accents elsewhere in house?)
