the 4 principles behind our services to Designers

Decades of collaborations with architects, interior designers, landscape designers and urban planners, around the world, have thought us the following facts about you
You always need lighting design expertise

You always do, but often time you think that the scale of your project does not necessit a specialist or more often than not you think the client will take care of it himself and ... he never does.

We offer you serious and flexible solutions to leverage effortlessly the power of our team into each of your projects, big or small ...

You don't need us to work next door

In 2021 even with projects being few blocks from our offices. We barely met in person. Our work is mostly about Analysis, Proposals and Technical Solutions. We do not add much value by hanging around our clients but take advantage of the technologies of communication. Of course we know to be here at key points of the projects (Presentations / Site visits ...).

We offer Remote Lighting Design done right, allowing efficiency, control and access to our expertise to firms in every parts of the globe. 

You need to reap the benefits of including lighting to your scope

Of course adding lighting to your scope will allow you to provide a much higher value final result. But it has not to be at the expense of your firm. In fact there is no reason that you do not benefit financially from adding and  managing more services to your projects. Our Collaborators have always benefited from working with us.

Whether we work under your contract or directly with the client. We always make sure you receive the benefits of lighting design.  

You need a seamless integration of the lighting in your process

What you are looking for is a commitment to the integrity of the project that would be as strong as yours. you need the lighting consultants to understand and integrate immediately your philosophy, system and procedures,from the aesthetic and the respect of your design, to the process (CAD / BIM...) and detailing.

From the initial sketches to the aiming of the last spotlight, our team will act and work like your very own Lighting Design Department.

Our Services

An In depth look as we are among professionals.

Strategic Consulting

We have coined the term "Strategic Lighting" for a good reason. We are amongst the few lighting professionals to offer a real Consulting Service focused on the Opportunities,Risk and Challenges that lighting will hold in your project. The profile of a Shopping Mall is different from Residential renovation, a Tower or a restaurant. Being able from inception to evaluate the right lighting strategy to implement has a far reaching impact that enhance the visual result, the energy savings, the functionality and attraction of the place and its overall successful operation. 

This Service starts with receiving all information from you, then setting up a meeting (in person, video conference, conference call ... ), followed by a report exploring potentialities and setting the lighting strategy most suited for the project. This service is most useful for the client and providing it through you let your firm stand out from the get-go.

Lighting Concept

Our team is famous for this very service. We are extremely good at understanding and analyzing the design you are producing (well... some of us are architects and interior designers!) . This is the foundation as our lighting design. Its first quality is to be perfectly integrated with your work. At a functional level, we provide the appropriate type of illumination, we are not just showing off colors, fancy sparkling decorations and unrelated lighting effects: We follow the tone you set and reinforce your core principles. At the same time we explore and share with you the potentialities that lies in your design to enhance and transcend your work's impact at night. We are not throwing lights and colors randomly, we accurately provide solutions that we know can be done and we are able at an early stage to discuss the technical implications of our solutions.

The Lighting Concept is a powerful tool in your hands, it is way beyond the shallow "night view" from your render team. Being able to provide a coherent, efficient, documented ,professional and impressive lighting chapter that is actually in line with your project just set you in a different category for your competition/proposal. You enter the realm of the design firms that provide a solution for 100% of the time and not just the for the day. 

You can contact us as soon as you have made your first sketch! We are very good at growing the lighting design in sync with your concept evolution, we become a force of proposition that can really enrich your design. this is actually how we reach our best results. But we can as well jump on board at any time and add our expertise on you fully developed concept. We distinguish a Lighting Concept Competition stage from a Lighting Concept + Schematic stage. The first is aimed at quickly and efficiently convince while mitigating the risk inherent at projects not formally attributed. The later,in the frame of contractual agreement with your client, provides more information and develop more the aspects of feasibility.  

Layout Drawings

We are of course able to develop our concepts into fully functional drawings that will integrate with your representation system and present the information needed to have a correct evaluation of the lighting system and its implementation. The Layout reflect our expertise and experience, its quality is a the main factor driving efficiency and energetic control. 

At the Design Development stage (DD), the drawing presents the exact position and types of each lighting fixture (Specifications). It allows for initial analytics, energy monitoring and preliminary budget. At the Construction Documentation stage (CD), the drawing is reworked to match the more accurate set of drawings we will get from you, we add to it the elements of wiring that support the control system and as well the several details needed to lead the construction team toward the best possible installation of the system.

Lighting Specifications

In line with our design and its deployment in the drawings, we provide a set of specifications, they accurately define the various fixtures that will be needed for the design. We are an independent lighting design company. This means that, just like you, we are not pushing any brand or products.Our focus is on the successful implementation and operation of our lighting design.We are therefore protecting you and your clients by pushing the most efficient solutions in term of consumption, operation and budget. In this regard, our Specifications are "Open Specifications" defining the product needed and not referring only to a brand, allowing the client to get quotes from any supplier worldwide and subsequently get the best possible value. "Open Specifications" usually cut budgets in half and more.   

The Specifications set is part of the Design Development stage (DD) and is linked to the drawings.It focuses on the light fixtures and their description. The last set of Specification is part of the Construction Documentation stage (CD) and it provides an accurate description of the Fixtures as well as the Equipment needed for the full Control System to operate.

Lighting Simulations

We provide Lighting Simulation when needed to assess, control and fine tune our solutions. The prediction of the lighting effects is at the heart of our expertise, but in special cases even us need to double check the validity of our design. We use a variety of tools to do so and we can provide you proofs and options through simulations at several stages of the design process  

We can offer Lighting simulations from the Lighting Concept stage, according to the specific solution we are proposing. It is more relevant to use lighting simulations at the Design Development stage (DD) to guide our Layout  and at the Construction Document stage to accurately check elements of detail. 

Conceptual Drawings and Detailing

We have heard that quite a lot of our fellow lighting designers were merely showing their clients what lights to buy out of a catalog. Well, for us, the overwhelming majority of the work is about exchanging with you to create the best integration that works with your configurations, materials and spaces. We sit down and draw solutions that creates this invisible and deep connection between your interior design and its illumination.    

We supply Conceptual Drawings and Detailing as a part of the constant communication flow that we establish throughout the project at every stage. It leads to properly drafted CAD details at the Construction Documentation stage (CD) and as well to specific Custom Designed Fixtures and Solutions that we would implement specifically for your project. 

Custom Designed Fixtures and Solutions

When the project request it, we are able to design Lighting Fixtures that would match perfectly your project. We have an extensive experience of the lighting industry and its processes, especially in the field of LED lighting, it is always possible for us to lead a product design from its initial idea to its drawing, prototyping and production through collaborations with factories.

This service often stems from the Concept Design and evolve through the following steps (DD and CD). Prototypes and Mock ups are usually needed to reach a successful implementation and installation.

Lighting Analytics and Value Engineering

We are the only lighting design company to provide systematically this service. It is important to constantly monitor the lighting system we are elaborating especially through the lenses of the energy efficiency and the economic efficiency. Understanding the role of each fixture type and making sure they play their role to their full extent without pushing the boundaries of what is needed is a big part of getting the lighting under control. Communicating with you through clear graphs and our analytical conclusions allows you to stay on top of all those concern in front of your client. This service has typically saved many projects huge amount of money and energy.

Depending the type of project, this service may start in a very rough iteration at the Concept Design stage. It is however an integral part of the Design Development and allows us to adapt, reinterpret and optimize  the lighting system for the next step of Construction Documentation (CD). Even at this step it is still time to re-adapt things to reach budget and energy targets. 

Control System Development

The control system is often omitted by our competitors. We believe that lighting is only efficient when working as a system,not just as an accumulation and juxtaposition of different lights. The lighting's nervous system of your project can not be left for the electrician on site it needs to be elaborated since the Concept Design and evolve with more and more clarity through the steps of the design. Especially with the rise of the led lighting, the control system is responsible for the flexibility of the installation and allowing for a good chunk of the energy savings and of the system longevity, through the modulation of the intensities along the phases of the days and nights or according to the visitors flow.
We have a good deal of experience with most control systems and can efficiently chose the right ones and make them work for your project.

The Control System should already be formulated in the Concept Design scheme in a simple way. Its presence should be reflected into the Design Development stage although it is still too early to fully represent it at this stage. It will however be accurately described and specified for the Construction Document stage.    

Tender Assistance

Once the Construction Documentation (CD) is issued with set of drawing and specifications, the client has the tools to pursue a tendering process between a host of potential suppliers to get the best value on his lighting system. The Lighting Industry is difficult to navigate and our experience can be an great asset to make sure the client is safe.  

We assist with this process by reviewing the specifications that are proposed by the suppliers and making sure they match ours. furthermore we can physically check samples directly on site or by getting them sent to us for review. 

Site Supervision

Before and During the Installation of the lights and their control system, we remain present to make sure the end result reach our expectations. We need to be on call to address any concern the construction team may have regarding the plans and details and collect any updates about the site evolution,that may impact our work. There are Key points during the site when we need to have a look into the installation, such as the first installation of a particular type of lamps to make sure things are going smoothly or  be able to adjust everything on the spot. Another Key point is the final set of adjustments from the aiming to the dimming and system setting check.  

We offer to travel on site and it makes total sense for the larger projects. We can however assist remotely to most of this process, video-conferencing with the site team and leading on-site video surveys during the installation is more than enough for a small to medium size project. It is however necessary to be on the ground to manage the final tuning of the lights and of the systems so if we have to come one time, this has to be that time.

LEED, BREEAM... Green Building Lighting packages

At the spearhead of the energy efficiency,our team is familiar with most of the compliance system for green buildings and their lighting chapters. We can assist your process by taking care of those part of your accreditation

We can help you assess according to your goals and standards to what extent the lighting can contribute to the overall environmental and energetic profile of your project.
