Private Residence Solnechnoye


For a private residence in the Solnechnoye neighbourhood of St. Petersburg, Russia, the owners chose Preciosa Lighting to design and create all of the home’s lighting.

We worked with interior design firm AB RDNK to create 44 pieces, including ceiling lights, floor and table lamps, plus a lighting installation for the residence’s living room. Our Light Collections as well as our bespoke projects inspired the client when choosing the fixtures for the home.

Throughout the large living room, more than 150 hand-blown glass components float from the ceiling. Featuring hues of brown smoke, honey, and light green, the colour and shape of the components give an outdoorsy feel to the space. In the dining room, another warm chandelier graces the area. The more than one metre lighting features triangular glass rods made from high quality optical glass. Three types of rods were used, two with different cuts and the third smooth. In the attached kitchen, a bar area includes another bespoke fixture. The one-metre light is formed into hexagon-like shapes and made from stainless steel with a golden brown finish.

In the home theatre, Preciosa created a special laser-cut net on which crystal stones and prisms are attached. It is attached to the ceiling and adds a geometrical look to the space while demonstrating Preciosa’s wide-ranging technical capabilities. Rectangular frosted glass sheets add an element of lighting interest in one of the bedrooms while in another, clear spheres of varying shapes are artistically placed on a horizontal gold metal frame.

Another statement chandelier showcases crystal component perfection. The chandelier is nearly free form, hanging in space. A dense oval shape is surrounded by thinner strands of strung clear stones. In the master bedroom, corresponding pendant lighting and a floor lamp feature hand-blown glass in grey-blue, smoky, brown smoke, amber, and light amethyst. Another bedroom has a metal fixture base finished in old gold colour and hung with hand-blown glass shaped like diamonds in multiple colours including smoky cracked, smoky taupe cracked, light and dark amber, amber, and champagne.

From our Light Collections, adapted versions of our King, Flare, Muutos and Souls can be found throughout the residence. Bespoke table and floor lamps in the living room, bedrooms and other spaces complement the main lighting and complete the residence’s modern style.
