Tell us a bit about your background? I’m a Creative Director at a global PR and integrated communications agency. I get to work across a broad range of industries; from sports to fashion, tech to travel. It’s always different, and there’s always a new challenge, which I love. I also lead the content team for TEDxBrixton.claire (1)What’s your favourite thing to do in Brixton? Eating and drinking! Without a doubt. We’re spoilt for choice here – so many amazing places. There are too many to list all my recommendations, but some of my favourites are Bukowski, Made of Dough, Mama Lan, and Chicken Liquor. Outside of The Village and Pop Brixton, I also like ThreeEightFour and Effra Social (they do a good pub quiz on a Tuesday).What’s your interpretation of this year’s theme ‘Kaleidoscopes’? For me it’s about constant evolution. About retaining beauty, despite an always changing form.What book(s) are you currently reading? What’s it about? Thrive by Arianna Huffington. She wrote the book after collapsing from exhaustion and severely injuring herself. It caused her to dramatically rethink her life, revaluating the choices she was making. Her book is neat summary of this reflection.What’s your favourite TED talk? I love a lot of the iconic talks such as Do Schools Kill Creativity? by Sir Ken Robinson and How I held my breath for 17 minutes by David Blaine. One of my personal favourites is How Sampling Transformed Music by Mark Ronson.

Giving the space volume and new perspectives, so the role of indoor lighting is to "dress up" the setting, to bring out certain details, to attract attention or create a certain type of atmosphere. General lighting is designed to evenly distribute light in a room and/or concentrate light to different points of interest. There are many choices if lighting designs but because of minimal ceiling heights in basements the main fixture used is the Hi-hat or canister light. This hi-hat is installed inside the ceiling cavity and is only noticeable from it's outward facing finish. As a main luminescent source, these must be chosen in order to satisfy the requirements of the role of the room. The basement is usually low on natural brightness. Unless you plan on spending a lot to get regular sized windows installed the lighting choices and designs should be deployed to make up for the lack of natural brightness.
always start first with ambient lighting and then with the accent lighting, which reveals details of the room, such as a certain texture painted on the wall and finally the lighting load. This will help you make a good decision and show you the appropriate way to install lighting and therefore the balance of general illumination. When selecting lighting or lights for the basement it is generally advisable to opt for two types of CFL and LED lights to save energy.

You can either go for a glue-down flooring system or a free floating system. Both of them will work excellently in the basement.
