LIGHTING DESIGN FOR SMALL AND LARGE SPACES
Our portfolio boasts projects of every scope and scale, from boutique chic to classic opulence - each requiring a unique design approach. We work in close collaboration with the client and design team to create custom designs that balance aesthetics, function, maintenance and cost.
Our projects are staged which allows us to integrate easily with the RIBA architectural stages and also gives the opportunity to review the project with the client and design team at each stage to ensure the best outcome for the client.
YOU ARE JUST 4 STEPS AWAY FROM A PROFFESIONALY DESIGNED LIGHTING SCHEME...
