Light wells brighten up formerly dark basement spaces
Read more about our Palo Alto Idea House
The basement was added to the home’s original plan, and in it we were able to slip a large media room, guest room, wine cellar, and laundry. All boast natural light except the wine room, thanks to small light wells at the side of the house and a large light well at the rear.
To give the small light wells visual appeal, we filled them with variously sized bamboo stalks, creating the impression of an exotic landscape.
