Lighting Design

Light enables us to see; it stimulates us, informs us and excites us. Yet although universally present, its power is often overlooked and its potential scarcely tapped. When balanced with shadow, light adds subtlety and excitement, tranquillity and mystery.

The Architecture

Light can reveal shape, surface and colour, it enriches our perception of the world around us by emphasising beauty, function and form. Light can subtly emphasise and accentuate architectural details and echo a design style, it will define the image of your home.

The Aesthetic

As well as providing the basic requirements for visual function, light plays a major role in how we experience a space. Lighting creates atmosphere, ambience and a sense of place.

This is achieved by scene setting whereby a touch of one button can change an area from strong lighting to moody lighting or linked in with an overall scene for a whole house.

The Environment, the Economy

Environmental factors are considered throughout the design process, from inception to completion. We ensure Part L compliance in line with current building regulations. Using clever digital dimmers, power is saved when the lights are dimmed. Using much more economical LED fittings, intelligent schedules and occupancy sensors wasted electricity is also avoided.
