LIGHTING THE WAY AHEAD

Originally formed to service the live entertainment business, Light Partners has widened its remit and now offers its expertise to clients who wish to add sophistication, sparkle, drama and interest to the broader architectural sector.

Utilising our expert knowledge of specialist lighting equipment and computerised control systems, Light Partners can offer a wide array of extraordinary illumination solutions that can enhance even the most ordinary surroundings.

Much of our more recent work incorporates sophisticated computer control of fixtures, enabling subtle changes of hue, saturation and luminance to be pre-programmed and remotely played back, thus creating ‘kinetic’ rather than merely ‘static’ illumination.

We work closely with developers, architects, builders, designers and landscapers to ensure that feature lighting is taken into consideration as an integral and crucial element in any project, large or small.

Each assignment we tackle is unique, with its own set of demands and constraints, but here is a typical timeline and summary of the services we offer:

  • CONSULTATION & DESIGN SERVICES
    • Meet with the prospective client, listen to their needs, wants and desires and determine budgets
    • Consult and advise on alternative illumination styles based on exchanges of ideas and client feedback
