Daylight and artificial lighting design
Starting at the very first ideas for a new project, the lighting designer can offer sustainable and creative ideas for the analysis of local conditions and the orientation of the building as well as size, type and structure of the windows. Should neighbouring buildings be affected by the new or added building, a shadow-study can be delivered.
The main illumination should ideally come from daylight, the artificial lighting is only meant to complement the daylight.
Energy can be saved by using daylight; additionally, there are positive health effects for the users of the building; colour rendering and colour temperature are excellent; the general wellbeing is raised.
Following the use and nature of the project, the lighting designer assists to define the requirements for illumination in the concept phase. According to the requirements, work-places are illuminated; atmospheres inviting to linger, interesting styles for shops, concepts for temporary installations are created; facades are accentuated; art illuminated in a gentle way. To choose the right instrument and tool for the lighting, the lighting designer can present a choice of different solutions and producers and thus find independently a cost and energy efficient way to illuminate the project, adapted to the needs of the customer.
For a continuous flexibility, not only the choice of the right lamps is important; but also the right lighting technique and a sensible light control.
The close cooperation with the client, the architect, interior designer, carpenter, metal worker and electrician allows a comprehensive solution.
