Private home in Marienburg, Cologne

Marienburg, part of the City of Cologne, is not only known for its won-derful villas and mansions. It is also one of the best preserved parts of the city – having fortunately suffered little damage during the wars. Some of the interiors of the buildings in Marienburg are truly remarkable. Take the living space in this villa, for example. The listed historic coffered ceiling alone makes for a very special atmosphere.

The lighting in this room had to meet special requirements: to highlight the ceiling as a discreet element, while at the same time ensuring the overall space was adequately lit. The Pend track solution blends in per-fectly with the aesthetics of the space and enables needs-based lighting on two levels: Pend has been set up to form two geometric structures that are offset from one another and aligned parallel to the ribs of the coffered ceiling - and appear to be floating unobtrusively in the space.
