Fiber Optic Lighting – Private Residence, Aulnay, France

On the French countryside, the sunlight is invited into the kitchen of this private home.

Location: Aulnay, France


ParansThe kitchen of this countryside home needed some more natural light and the owners had decided to install a Parans system. As the roof could not be used, the challenge of this installation was to find a place for the SP3 receiver. The receiver needed an elevated place to see the sun from the garden full of greenery.


Using the flexible Parans Solar Cables, the installation does not have to be made from the top down. In a sunny corner of the garden, an elevated wooden base was built for the receiver. Conduit was then buried under the lawn, to bring the Parans Solar Cables underground and then up into the kitchen. Inside the room, both L3 Spotlights and an L1 Small luminaire are used to illuminate the work surface and stove. Parans Solar Lighting provided a flexible solution to solve the daylighting problems.
