As yacht designers we are always looking for ways to enhance the aesthetic appeal and functionality of our designs. Today, I want to highlight one design element that can truly elevate the look and feel of your yacht – ceiling soffits.
Soffits are architectural features that are installed on the underside of a ceiling. They can be used to conceal lighting fixtures, create visual interest, and add depth to a space. In yacht design, ceiling soffits can be used to create a sense of grandeur and luxury, while also serving practical purposes such as hiding wiring and ductwork.
Soffits can be designed to accommodate a range of lighting options from recessed lighting to LED strips and more, allowing us to create a perfect ambiance for any space, and we have been exploring that in some of our recent projects, including ALTA, CHASSEUR, III AMIGOS, and our most recent refit Maison Blanche.
Here are some of our favorite ceiling soffit projects at PKD:
