As lighting designers, creating integrated solutions that reveal and enhance the architecture, is central to our work. Yet, as advisors to our clients and advocates for the users of the spaces we design, our concerns are necessarily broader. Issues of first time and long-term cost, ease of maintenance and durability matter to facility owners. Flexibility and ease of use are as important as the quality of light to occupants. Environmental sustainability is of vital concern to all of us.
While we are specialists, we take a holistic approach to lighting design by collaborating closely with the entire team, by bringing our knowledge of current design and advanced technology to projects, and by making a commitment to sustainable solutions. From the daylighting at a public library to low lights for a hip club, from a historic facade to an efficient office, from the skyline to the riverfront – our talent team is working on the right design for each environment.
Led by Maureen Moran, principal and owner, Scott Guenther, Frank Feist, Mitch Johnson, Kaitlyn Fuller, and Sarah Wujcik each bring special expertise and their unique perspective to the firm. The depth of professional expertise and technical talents allows us to design projects of all types, including corporate headquarters, historically preserved sites, museums and exhibits, retail, malls, restaurants, hotels, conference centers, videoconferencing and system control rooms, libraries, archives, schools, theaters and auditorium and sustainable design.
State of the art computer resources support us, including Revit, CAD 2012 capabilities with modern file transfer, Lightscape rendering software, and AGI calculation software.
