霍尔客厅概念是最古老的概念之一,在使用方面已经绝迹。这种风格的房屋开始很久以前在英国,它也称为木结构(jakle et al,1989)。这个概念是一个非常简单的概念,其中房子的整个空间被分成两半,一半是大厅,另一个是客厅或简单的客厅。





The Hall-parlour house concept is one of the oldest concepts which have been extinct in terms of usage. This style of housing started in England a long time ago and it is also termed as a Timber Framed Structure (Jakle et al, 1989). This concept was a very simple idea wherein the entire space of the house was divided into two halves with one half being the hall and the other being the parlour or a living room in simple words.

Now, the trend has completely changed and there is a mandatory space allotted for a hall in any building construction which is drastic but a significantly appreciable change. A hall may vary in terms of size, capacity and area. In general, this may be a square or a rectangle with four walls covered under a certain measured length and breadth under a roof.

A hall is generally a place where comfort items and entertainment technologies are installed. So, the lighting system has to be spot on as far as this area is concerned (Philips, 2012). Let us consider a rectangular hall with one of the walls having a television and its parallel wall having a renowned painting work of a famous personality which is framed with glass.

When there is a bright lighting in the direction opposite to the television or glass frame, it causes a high amount of Reflection on the walls and Refraction on the glass. So, there is a glare observed in this scenario (Egan et al, 2002). Hence a proper level of lighting is necessary at these areas as these are prone to multiple bouncing of light rays. A dispersion phenomenon can be used at the top of the ceiling to create a party or cool effect.
