I'm trying to plan a few wall sconces for lighting as in this picture:

big bang theory floor with elevator

One thought I had was to put a transparent 2x2 round halfway into the wall with half of it hanging out and then put 2 quarter circle tiles on top. Does anyone have any better ideas?

    I assume that you're after minifig scale? Or are you going for the micro scale of most Architecture sets (based on the architecture tag)? Sep 28, 2020 at 15:07
  • @Zhaph-BenDuguid I don't think the tag was chosen for this reason rather than because lamps are an architectural feature. Though, even if it was, this is a general design question unrelated to existing products, so the tag can be removed anyway.

  • @ChristianRau Agreed, and that was my thought to because the architecture tag defines itself as "Questions relating to the Lego Architecture theme". I was just confirming what the intended scale and use was ;) Sep 29, 2020 at 10:39

Assuming you want this in minifigure scale, I would mount part 553c Brick, Round 2 x 2 Dome Top - Hollow Stud with Bottom Axle Holder x Shape + Orientation upside down in the wall, topped with a 18674 Tile, Round 2 x 2 with Open Stud in Black mounted right-side up. You will need to do some clever SNOTting to make that all fit, but an upside-down 3659 Brick, Arch 1 x 4 could hold the dome brick and the round tile can be held in place with a regular brick.

Here is how this would look like:

Note: technically this doesn’t fit (the dome sticks out of the top of the inverted arch brick by just a smidge too much) but due to tolerances you can make this work. I used a white dome brick because I didn’t have a trans-clear one handy.
