Areas of Work
- artificial and daylight lighting design for architecture
- museum and commercial exhibition lighting design
- theater and stage lighting design
Our office primarily designs artificial and daylight lighting for architecture construction projects.
Our work includes the lighting design for objects such as museums and event locations, representation buildings, media façades, hotels, shops, restaurants, traffic and transportation facilities, exterior areas and parks. It also includes the lighting design for temporary illumination of museum or commercial exhibitions, conventions and installations.
The office provides profound knowledge in the fields of architecture lighting, theater and stage lighting, as well as media and video design.
How we work
Architecture and the medium light are directly connected with each other.
The main focus of our work is to support the architects' creative purposes for architecture through a holistic and individual lighting design.
Ideally, the lighting designer and architect start working together from the initial planning of an architecture/media façade/exhibition/stage. Early cooperation makes an unobtrusive integration of necessary lighting engineering possible.
Modeling, visualization of natural and artificial light scenarios, illustrations and video animations are part of our planning effort.
We strive to offer innovative approaches which consider the aspects of functionality, profitability and energy efficiency.
We want to show that ?light? is not a functional necessity. Instead we want to demonstrate the quality and creative power which the medium ?light? provides.
According to theater ? three aspects:
In theater a room effect is mainly affected by lighting. Direction, color and intensity of light define whether a scene seems warm or cold, near or far, friendly or uncomfortable.
Theater lighting engineering permits to illuminate a scene individually. The balancing act between too much and not enough light, between being able to and not being able to feel can succeed perfectly. This situation is reached for example when the human eye is no longer able to decide whether a wall is illuminated or appears to be emitting its own light. Because of how natural it appears, a display as such often accounts for the quality of good lighting design.
The lighting engineering that is used is usually hidden behind the stage portal ? invisible to the audience. It adds to the power of a scene and contributes to the theater's magic. The technical formation of the perceived impression of the room is not noticable ? it is not dominant and therefore making it possible to intensely experience a room.
The same is true for architecture lighting design!
