Good Lighting, Well-Planned

ESSENTIAL is our fastest and most affordable service that involves meetings directly with our remote team of professional lighting designers.

DISCOVER: Complete an online intake survey to help us get to know your project quickly and then meet remotely with our designers to discuss your goals. We dig in deep to make sure we understand your values and dreams.

DESIGN: Our designers will prepare preliminary lighting plans, gather example images of lighting techniques, and study the budget parameters of the project. We meet remotely to review the design and discuss possible changes.

DELIVER: Complete a final survey and release and we will revise the drawings and complete the deliverables needed to build the project. You will receive comprehensive drawings, precise architectural fixture specifications, and detailed instructions to help your contractors get the job done right.

BUILD: We include a few hours of unspecified time after the DELIVER phase to answer contractor questions or make minor changes. Need more time? Hourly agreements are available for as long as you need us.

We are architectural lighting designers focused on transforming spaces through concealed performance fixtures such as recessed spotlights and linear LEDs. Our work includes every fixture except decorative fixtures like lamps, wall sconces and chandeliers. We will suggest locations for decorative fixtures and add them to our drawings. Most clients work directly with an interior designer or lighting showroom to select the decorative fixtures.
