The presence of light may do more than merely allow for sight. Scientifically, light impacts important brain functions. Metaphorically, we believe
From small sculptural lighted artworks to large immersive environments, temporary installations to permanent, the use of light as an artistic medium can engage the senses.
Dynamic | Projected | Luminous | Tangible
Laboratory spaces and research facilities require highly specialized lighting considerations. Inspirational and functional; the goal is the work.
In public spaces like courthouses, libraries, stadiums, convention centers, airports and museums, light brings grandeur, identity, and focus.
Mostly exterior projects – landscaped areas, gardens, signage elements, and monumental features benefit from the use of light as a sculptural medium, applied to reveal form at night, or as a means for messaging.
Hospitals, outpatient facilities, clinics, specialty procedure suites – the lighting in such spaces should not feel institutional. Not just an assessment of visual acuity and functional performance, the design of lighting in healthcare environments requires the utmost care and creativity. Human health and healing are impacted by light.
Projects designed for single users, either by tenant improvement or single-purpose new construction, require a lighting experience guided by preference and vision, and an objective design approach.
Developer driven projects, multi-use speculative projects, shell & core projects, etc. often aim to achieve optimized building performance and sustainable viability through efficient, cost-driven lighting specification.
Exterior façades, projections, specialty treatments for distance viewing and integrated lighting solutions have the potential to bring something special to an urban environment.
In teaching facilities, daylight and electric lighting play symbiotic roles in providing comfortable illumination for low-distraction environments.
Hotels, restaurants, retail… compelling and sometimes luxurious spaces where the quality of light may be overtly noticeable, requiring the utmost care and detailing.
Living spaces, houses, and art collections are especially important to those who occupy and enjoy such spaces. Lighting, an environmental treatment eliciting subjective response, must be focused on the needs of the individual.
Central utility plants, treatment facilities, parking, and power stations – such spaces can have a positive impact on their environments, and/or be a canvas for creativity.
Theatres, cinema, casinos, performance venues, themed environments, zoos, aquariums – all spaces where there are two sides to every story. The magic may lie in what we humans don’t see.
