Architectural Lighting Design

Comprehensive lighting design requires consideration of the amount of functional light provided, the energy consumed, as well as the aesthetic impact supplied by the lighting system.

It is important that the sciences of light production and luminaire photometrics are balanced with the artistic application of light as a medium in our built environment.

Architectural lighting design focuses on three fundamental aspects of the illumination of buildings or spaces. The first is the aesthetic appeal of a building, an aspect particularly important in the illumination of retailenvironments. Secondly, the ergonomic aspect: the measure of how much of a function the lighting plays. Thirdly is the energy efficiencyissue to assure that light is not wasted by over-illumination, either by illuminating vacant spaces unnecessarily or by providing more light than needed for the aesthetics or the task.


SmartGlass when switched “On” allows 76% light transmission & when switched “Off” allows 67%.

SmartGlass provides efficient utilization of space for office interiors, offering instant privacy on demand at the flick of a switch. SmartGlass provides simple, instantaneous and reversible states of transparency with little alteration of light level making it an ideal solution for office interiors where ample lighting is fundamental.

The quality and simplicity of SmartGlass provides the ideal environment of privacy for office interiors and conference rooms.

SmartGlass can create small subdivisions of office spaces delivering instant privacy to carry out important meetings and presentations, without distractions from onlookers, and co-workers eliminating the “goldfish bowl” effect.

SmartGlass offers a sleek, sophisticated interior solution eliminating the need for curtains/blinds which can look dated and unpleasant.
