Lightsource is a professional practice committed to rigorous inquiry, ambitious design, and responsive service. We are a multi-disciplinary firm, with a staff comprised of architects and industrial, theatrical and interior designers. This wide range of skills and experience provides a unique design capability that is supported by thoughtful technical analysis and attention to detail.
We approach our work as a collaborative effort, working within our clients' design, scheduling, and financial goals. Beginning in the planning phase, Lightsource can define appropriate lighting criteria by identifying issues, establishing methods, and developing budgets and cost controls.
In design, we look for images in light that best expresses the character and style of the project. Texture, contrast, colour, integrated detail, ornament, optics, and natural light make up our palette. By selectively applying these tools, and studying the project from many perspectives, distinctive lighting solutions can be achieved.
Our Scope of Design Services begin at the Concept Design Stage, where initial lighting concepts are explored with the members of the Design Team and presented to the Client, highlighting the unique features and character of the structure and space, and continue through Design Development, where the approved lighting concepts are developed into constructible designs. Documentation, including detailed drawings, control systems, and specifications are prepared in the Documentation and Tender Stages. During Construction, we review submissions, attend to site inspections to monitor the progress of the installations, and carry out full Testing and Commissioning, including adjustment of light fittings and control systems the completion of the Project.
