Architectural lighting design focuses on three fundamental aspects of the illumination of buildings or spaces. The first is the aesthetic appeal of a building, an aspect particularly important in the illumination of retail environments. Secondly, the ergonomic aspect: i.e. the measure of how much of a function the lighting plays. Thirdly is the energy efficiency issue to assure that light is not wasted by over-illumination, either by illuminating vacant spaces unnecessarily or by providing more light than needed for the aesthetics or the task.
Architectural lighting design, much like architecture itself, qualifies as being neither an art nor a science, rather a mixture of both. Whilst creative spirit is demanded of a designer, a qualified professional architectural lighting designer will generally have a good understanding of the properties of light from a scientific standpoint and of the functioning of a light fixture (known as a “luminaire” in field terminology).
We offer a unique service based around understanding your requirements and delivering innovative, visually stimulating and technically excellent lighting solutions that meet a sound installation, operation and maintenance strategy. Wherever possible, we believe in the integration of lighting equipment into the surroundings, resulting in the visual stimulation of light and texture, form and volume. We work along with some of the highly reputed and pioneer architects and construction companies in Sri Lanka to deliver the very best!
We will take you through a consultative process to define the scope of a lighting project, from initial proposal, to concepts and visualisations then a fully specified and estimated scheme. Finally, we will project manage the implementation to ensure you get exactly what has been designed. Here is how we achieve this:
- Concept Design Documentation: including a variety of visuals to explain concept lighting proposals to varied end users. These can be in the form of hand sketches, generic installation details, through to computer generated photo realistic concept images.
- Scheme Design Documentation: typically this will consist of fully detailed CAD plans, elevations, sections and installation details. This will also include full luminaire specification, lighting control requirements and any other supporting material.
- Project Commissioning: including luminaire positioning and installation guidance, end design scheme conforming to all standardisations, etc.
