Good lighting design ensures visual comfort, quality and inspiration. The creation of such inspiring, attractively lit environments requires a design team that combines spatial awareness, creativity, technical excellence, the appreciation of client requirements and operation and maintenance issues.
The creation of sustainable solutions is an important part of our lighting design. Next to our focus on new technologies and durable fixtures, we aim to apply light only where it is necessary, without altering the envisioned experience and light quality.
Smart lighting scheme also relies on using natural light effectively. There are numerous benefits to a daylit space.
In museums daylight provides colour rendering, which creates a perfect visual experience.
In offices, daylight offers a much healthier environment that improves productivity.
Daylight also provides a sustainable and cost effective alternative to electric lighting.
There are different ways of presenting information in architecture. The information can be static or dynamic, informative or artistic. The medium and way of presenting should be adapted to the goal and message.
Our main experience with media in architecture is media facades. By creating a dynamic lighting surface, the client is able of changing the atmosphere, the message and the look and feel of the space. It is a great way to interact with your audience.
Not only shops, but also offices and buildings as a whole should get their own identity and reflect brand values. A clear identity will not only attract customers, but will also inform them.
Together with the architect and the designer &light achieve that all surround elements, like lighting, materials, colour, products and the interaction with all this, create the experience of the visitor with that specific brand. Our designers are experienced in product design, ranging from custom-made light fittings to urban furniture.
&light has been involved in a number of unique lighting projects that could be termed ‘Light Art’. They may be permanent or temporary in nature, therefore having different sets of requirements.
Our specialists in partnership with the light festival organizers in Jerusalem and Ghent have developed scenarios for the international light festival / events in a number of cities of Russia, including Pskov, Izhevsk and Ulianovsk.
We see Value Engineering as a creative, organized approach that can be applied to the different systems/components of the lighting project, aiming to optimize cost without sacrificing quality. Value Engineering may be implemented throughout the different project phases, starting from the conceptual planning phase until to the construction phase, but will realize the greatest benefit if applied at the early phase of a project.
People’s overall experience is connected a lot to good wayfinding - one of the most important factors that is to be taken into account in modern cities.
In &light, we strive for integrated solutions; lighting becomes a part of the information/internet navigation system which helps people, for example tourists, to explore the city during the day time and to feel safe at night time.
Every lighting project requires professional supervision to ensure that the work is executed in accordance with the design documentation, with a high level of quality and in line with Best Practices and relevant Regulations/Standards.
