Making the most of the prevalent mature trees, an all-over luminosity was achieved using a moon-lighting technique that positions specially-engineered LED fixtures high in the tree canopy to project shadows downward through the branches and leaves.

The shadow patterns painted on the home’s stucco walls, paving and lawn are organic yet dramatic – much like the effect of a perigree full moon beaming through the trees. The color of the light (in the cool range of 5500 Kelvin), concealment of fixtures, careful aiming and shielding, as well as utilizing arborist best-practices in mounting the fixtures are paramount with this technique.
