Lots of ceiling bounced strobes Warming gels if you plan to mix with  
artificial lights or with exterior lighting. Small aperture. Low  
speed to let some exterior light show through the windows/doors/etc.  
A polarizer will help you control reflections of non metal surfaces.
Use a very wide angle and keep the verticals vertical.
On postprocessing, correct perspective and shadow detail.
