35 Dining Room Concrete Floors Recessed Lighting Design Photos And Ideas

For Tea Bar, Swanson chose lighting from local outfit Schoolhouse Electric, including the Isaac Pendent.
In the dining room next to the study is a deep window seat inserted on the north side of the home that overlooks the outdoor deck.
The full-height sliding glass doors have been added to mediate the threshold between the garden and house.
The house has floors of burnished concrete, providing thermal mass in the cooler months. The cement retains heat from the sun during the day and then slowly releases it back into the atmosphere to warm the interiors in the evening.
Mainly open in plan, a two-sided fireplace with an open flute quietly divides the spaces on the main floor.
Brick was also used in the interior to lend a sense of warmth.
The open-plan living area on the ground floor of the new building is fitted with large windows that frame tranquil views of the lake.
The fireproofing material that the architects used to cover the steel girders give them the textural appearance of roughened concrete.
Within the open plan living-dining-kitchen space, they created a second ceiling in the form of three brick arcs that extend from one girder to the next, with each gentle arc rising over one of the functional zones.
Passageways were carefully planned to present intriguing interior perspectives.
The ground floor consists of two zones—a northern wing where the open-plan kitchen, dining room, and living area are located, as well as a western wing, which houses the four bedrooms.
The built-in window seat can double as a guest bed.
The living room, kitchen, and dining room sit below street level in an open, communal area. A large, operable skylight measuring six by three meters allows light to stream over the dining table—the four glass panes had to be craned over the neighboring buildings.
The kitchen overlooks the dining and living room.
The home's rectilinear floor plan facilitates coastal cross-breezes (or passive cooling), while thermally broken double-glazed windows ensure the building envelope stays tight so as to reduce carbon emissions.
Here we see an original mid century table paired with new modern chairs and accented with a bohemian pot and side table.
A contemporary galley kitchen with wood cabinetry provides an open, fluid cooking space. The cooktop hood nestles perfectly against the structural framing.
The dining room is meant to be a flexible space for eating or dancing. “One of the most important things for me,” explains Grunbaum, “is how a house feels. It has to be a place where you don’t want to leave.” The Cyclone table is by Isamu Noguchi for Knoll and the pendant lamp is by Lightoiler.

Sunset pendants by Treviso-based Torremato illuminate a custom table and bench as well as a trio of Eames chairs. Di Stefano and Bongiorno used lighting to structure the open plan: “We put accents on focus points; we didn’t want the light completely spread out,” Di Stefano says.

What are some places the children's and parents' needs dovetail in the design?

There was a lot of concern about minimizing clutter. There's acres of cabinetry to put things away. I think that helps to keep the kids calm. Clutter is really hard on autistic kids. Being able to keep things clean seems to really help. This place had to be user-friendly for the kids, parents, and tutors.
A series of Masters chairs by Philippe Starck and Eugeni Quitllet for Kartell enliven the dining area of Don and Linda Shafer’s hilltop prefab home in Marfa, Texas. The walnut Light Extending Table by Matthew Hilton for De La Espada straddles the black steel band “marriage line” that connects the two modules that make up the living area. Two Hope pendants by Luceplan hang overhead.
