A passion project of its owner, Brian Richards of Precision Media Solutions in Denver, CO, this tree house is a combination of his love for lighting and technology. Inspired by his stay at Treehouse Point near Seattle, the project fulfills a childhood dream to one day have a real tree house.

Richards utilizes custom painted DID4 Integrator Adjustable Modules throughout to highlight the copious amounts of luxurious wood. The modules are paired with Square Flangeless Trims with a Bronze finish to provide the ultimate in modern, minimalist ceiling design.

Description:We were able to use a variety of DMF lighting products in our collaboration with Britt Design Group in the build out of their new office space in Austin, Texas.

Under stair storage and mechanical rooms are lit with square DRD5S’s. The Reception is welcoming with general lighting provided by the DRD2 with square trims. A pathway of DCC2 cylinder pendants with decorative trims guide you through the Library and Corridor with three DCC4 cylinder pendants accenting the artwork at the entrance of the Conference Room doors. The Break-room general lighting utilizes the DRD2 and round trims with the exception of three round wall wash trims to accent display walls.
