- FIRM PROFILE
Truly extraordinary lighting design occurs at the confluence of science and art. Its beauty belies the complexity of blending energy management, maintainability, code compliance, technology and aesthetics, all of which hang in the balance. While the measure of each is different for every application, no lighting project that fails to consider each separately and collectively can be successful.
As lighting designers, our primary objective is to enhance architectural design while complying with current lighting level guidelines, integrating system maintainability and complying with energy codes and voluntary energy conservation programs such as LEED.
Light can evoke emotion, create illusion of space and dimension, influence consumerism and impact physical well-being. In the enhancement of architecture and architectural finishes, light is an indispensable tool for establishing rhythm, revealing form and texture and creating visual drama.

The Fine Arts Theater at the University of Georgia was originally designed with ornamental details common in late 19th and early 20th century theaters. This renovation restored the grandeur of the original space, including its ornate style and detail, using the latest technology and lighting to celebrate these features. This included a reproduction of the original wall sconces, house lighting and accent lighting of architectural features throughout the theater. A new lighting control system incorporates the house and theatrical lighting within one system to provide a more simplified control solution.
