Architectural Lighting

Architectural lighting deals with the human response to the luminous environment. Architectural lighting was once the science of simply providing appropriate illumination. Today, architectural lighting is a complex merger of art, science, technology, psychology, and human aesthetics. 

Our architectural lighting projects include; hotels, casinos, shopping malls, restaurants, bars, offices and theatres. Our speciality work includes projects for museums, galleries and large scale automated exhibits. We take a comprehensive and co-ordinated approach to all stages of each project, from design development to project completion.
