Carlow House is a glass domed residential building, converted from an Edwardian warehouse into an archetype of Art Deco architecture and refined contemporary design, that holds 85 loft-style apartments in bohemian Camden.
Its multi-faceted atrium will serve as a colossal chandelier, illuminating all 85 apartments within Carlow House with an abundance of natural light. Adorning the rising levels will be floating planters and exposed brick wall finishes that will create spatial variety and an intriguing blend of natural beauty and industrial design.
New Concept Interiors were looking for bright, colourful art for their exposed brick walls in the central atrium which is filled with natural light.
The atrium, as well as the whole building, being converted from a warehouse, needed something to accentuate its urban design.
Jane’s bright prints bring just enough animation into the space to add to its brightness and not to feel intrusive.
Q: Jane, how do you find working with Luminaire Arts?
A: I have known Paresha for a long time, and all commissions I have received from Luminaire Arts were exciting. I have loved working on them all and actually they have been a good mix of commissions. I have done work for various countries and its always inspiring. Surprisingly, I’m often told my work is quite masculine, or that it appeals to masculinity, which I find intriguing. Carlow House used several of my prints, and it’s always stimulating when my work is chosen for a new development.
Q: What inspires your work?
A: My work is random, but random to only a certain point; I am very much inspired by travelling, landscapes and textures I encounter, which I then try to translate into a painting.
