Light is perhaps the most ethereal element of design, yet it has a remarkable power to transform space and enhance the environment.

To create an environment of architectural distinction, which at the same time is financially viable, requires an uncommon blend of skills.

With the growth of the lighting industry and its rapidly changing technology, the role of the lighting consultant is now more important then ever.

One must not only have the technical expertise but possess an affinity and sensitivity for light as an architectural material.


For the past twenty nine years, we have been using these skills to create successful lighting solutions.
