We understand the physical and physiological aspects of light; how it affects our lives and how to achieve the right ambience, balance and moods. We understand how environments can change with light; what happens to materials, colours and textures when lit, how to enhance architectural form and volume with light.
Within residential developments we concentrate on three main objectives namely safety and security of the residents, the image and aesthetics of the development and finally the sustainability of the final design and ensure that these objectives are met.
Lighting is one of the least energy efficient practices in the home, with a mere 10% of energy used providing actual light, the remainder providing unwanted and unnecessary heat. Coupled with the fact that lighting generally accounts for around a tenth of a homeowner’s energy bill, lighting is one of the least environmentally sound aspects of modern living.
This need not be the case with the current available lighting technology. Energy efficient light bulbs offer a better light/heat ratio, as well as reducing energy consumption by as much as 70% due to its lower wattage.
Along with emerging technological solutions, some simple practices, like turning unnecessary lights off, can help make lighting even more environmentally friendly.
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 costed 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.
To aid you with information and guidance, we have a Residential Lighting Guide. For more information on our stock inventory and projects we have worked, please visit our store or give us a call.
