How to light this room?

The film is about a girl who gets caught up in translating documents for a terrorist, and much of the action for this location happens around a computer in the room. The director wants a very low key and threatening look about it, and I anticipate light sources (defiantly during the night scenes) being from practical lamps, though I wouldn't mind parts of the frame being lit by moonlight as a source.
The majority of the scenes in this location will be at nighttime though there will be a couple of day time ones as well. We have to shoot during the day so will have to black out.
Really I'm wondering how others would light this room given this information if they could use any tools they wanted, and also after taking a look at the lighting kit I currently have how they would light it.
Here's our kit at the moment.
2x4ft Kino - tungsten
1x150w dedo kit
and a selection of Chinese lanterns
the first three pictures are the same room and the fourth is a room that joins the first. The last is the hallway from the front door.

It's vague but I don't know exactly the scene(s) and it should give you an idea of how I would approach it.
