    Calming light in a peaceful home spa

    In the words of the 2009 IALD Award of Excellence press release, the design concept for the Limerick House Spa was "to create a series of calming, coherent and relaxing spaces in a newly carved-out basement."

    The pool is halo-lit from the perimeter by concealed iColor Cove MX Powercore luminaires (now specified with PureStyle Compact Powercore, IntelliHue) that bounce light down the walls and define the ceiling profile with a distinct line of light, providing a warm white glow or dramatic colors. The IALD judges called the project “an archetypal achievement for pool and spa lighting design.”
