Working With Us
We have found that the best relationships are fostered with clients who want their designs to evoke a specific sense of place, brand, or community. We believe that client-oriented, site-specific, customized light solutions enhance the users’ experience of a building or structure. Maintaining an open line of communication, a commitment to stellar results, and an interest in best practices helps us to strengthen these relationships and to keep our clients coming back. We offer clients a relentless work ethic, collaborative mind set, and multidisciplinary staff. We are experienced, engaged, and invested in superior outcomes.
Our training as architects, engineers, and designers, and our commitment to keeping abreast of current issues and trends, enable us to apply our skills to a broad array of project types, from an intimate New York City lounge space to the largest single-span arch bridge in the world.
Our design paradigm does not focus on expensive decorative fixtures, but rather on subtle and architecturally intelligent ideas that augment the salient features of the lit structure, and are often inexpensive. One of our primary goals is to protect our clients’ interests by negotiating reasonable prices with reputable distributors, and we never lock our client into proprietary/exclusive products, always specifying three options for all fixtures, lamps, and accessories.
